Indiana Pacers Betting
The Pacers are hoping to continue the five-game winning streak that they are on right now and they defeated the tough Denver Nuggets in enemy territory during their last game. Indiana had three players scoring 22 points for them with Domantas Sabonis, TJ Warren and Malcolm Brogdon. Sabonis finished with a triple-double with 22 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists while Brogdon added eight assists to his total. The top scorer for the team came from the bench with Doug McDermott doing 24 points while sinking six triples. This is the type of resiliency that the Pacers want to maintain and in a few weeks, they will get Victor Oladipo back and looks to build from what they did.

Utah Jazz Betting
Utah has a lot of weapons at their arsenal. In their last game, the biggest gun was Rudy Gobert who had 28 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks to anchor the middle. Bojan Bogdanovic had 30 points while Donovan Mitchell chipped in with 22. Off the bench was Jordan Clarkson who had 20 points. This was a game that they did not get much production from Joe Ingles and Royce O’Neale. Luckily, the Jazz are facing the Kings but against the Pacers, they need those two players to come out and do their roles as their opponents from the east will look to capitalize every mistake they make.
