15* NBA Tuesday Total ANNIHILATOR on Jazz/Pacers UNDER 193.5
Utah vs. Indiana,
02/07/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 99 - 104
Total: -110/+193½ Under
The Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers will take part in a defensive battle tonight. This line opened at 189 and has been bet all the way to 193.5 as the public is on the OVER. This provides us with ample value to pull the trigger on the UNDER. Looking at season averages alone, this is a no-brainer.
Utah is scoring 96.9 points/game and giving up 96.9 points/game for an average combined score of 193.8 points/game. Sure, that number is basically right at tonight's posted total, but looking at Indiana's numbers tells the story.
The Pacers are scoring 94.0 points/game and giving up 90.7 points/game for an averaged combined score of 184.7 points/game. Those numbers drop to 93.9 and 87.5 for an average of 181.4 points/game in Indiana home games. The Pacers will control the tempo at home tonight and I expect a final to come in the low 180's.
Indiana is 11-1 to the UNDER in their last 12 home games where where the total is between 190 and 194.5 points. I'm seeing an average combined score of 183.7 points/game in this spot. The UNDER is 6-1 in Jazz last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The UNDER is 10-4 in Jazz last 14 road games. The UNDER is 8-2-1 in Pacers last 11 home games. The UNDER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. Roll with the UNDER in this game Tuesday.
