Oklahoma City Thunder vs Indiana Pacers 11/12/2019 – Despite a nightmare of a start and injuries to their key players, the Indiana Pacers (6-4) are looking like a force in the East again four weeks into the season.

The Pacers are listed as the NBA Moneyline favorites (-155) but it is advisable not to sleep on the Thunder, who just pushed the Milwaukee Bucks to the limit in their last game.
