Indiana Pacers Betting

The Pacers lost by just one point against the Miami Heat with Goran Dragic making a critical shot in the final seconds of the game. It was a tough night for Domantas Sabonis who only had 8 points and seven rebounds in the game. Myles Turner was also subpar with 13 points and six rebounds. Aaron Holiday continues to be fielded as the floor general for the team as he finished with 17 points and nine assists. The Pacers were outhustled by the Heat but this showed their character as a never-say-die team. Against the Pelicans, they need Sabonis and Turner to dominate the paint and let Derrick Favors work for every rebound.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting

No Zion, no problem! The New Orleans Pelicans delivered an upset on Christmas Day over the Denver Nuggets with Brandon Ingram leading the charge with 31 points, seven rebounds and dropped seven three-pointers. What was impressive was Derrick Favors flirting with a triple-double with 8 points, 13 rebounds, 8 assists and three blocks — he did it while sizing up against Nikola Jokic. More so Josh Hart and E’twaun Moore stepping up from the bench and combined for 26 points. The Pelicans seem to have found a good identity sans Zion Williamson and they are glad that they are hosting this game against the Pacers and they will try to maintain that momentum.
