In Victor Oladipo’s first game off an ACL injury, the Indiana Pacers came through with a gutsy win over the Bulls, 115-106, on Wednesday. Oladipo finished with just 9 points in 21 minutes but the All-Star guard knocked down a huge three-pointer that sent the game into overtime.

New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
The Knicks might have an ugly losing record at 13-36 but New York is actually good at covering the spread this season at 25-24. The Pacers also have a winning ATS record at 26-20-2, making Saturday’s game between the two teams an intriguing one for NBA spread bettors.
Moneyline: Bet on the Pacers at -600. The smart money here is on the Pacers. They are good and they just got back the service of their star player, who showed the definition of clutch in their last game.
ATS: Back the Knicks to cover the 10.5-point spread. New York is losing games but they are putting a good fight as of late with the exception of 21-point beatdown against the Grizz in their last game. I feel the Knicks will play competitively against the Pacers, losing by just under 10 points.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 214 points. The Pacers and the Knicks are mediocre offensive teams but the total set for this game is too low that you have to pick OVER.
Score Prediction: 117 – 109 Pacers
