Pelicans vs. Pacers
I’m recommending a play on the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night. We had the Pacers +2 at the New York Knicks a couple nights ago. The Pacers had their 3-game winning streak snapped in their previous game and we felt they’d bounce back. Indiana led 90-74 at one point of the fourth quarter before a collapse saw them get outscored 34-11, leading to a 108-101 defeat. The Pacers return home where they have covered five of six at home against teams with a winning home record. Myles Turner returned two games ago for the Pacers, just in time to face the Pelicans’ Anthony Davis / DeMarcus Cousins tandem. I don’t care for New Orleans’ PG situation. Jrue Holliday and backup Jameer Nelson continue to underwhelm. Indiana has covered 8 of the last 11 meetings and we like them here. I’m recommending a play on the Pacers on Tuesday. Thanks & GL!
