Indiana vs. Philadelphia, 03/16/2013 19:30
Point Spread: +5/-102 Philadelphia
FREE PLAY for 3/16/13
Philadelphia 76ers +5
The Key: The Pacers were upset at home by the Lakers last night, and things don't figure to get any easier for them as they head out on the road where they are just 14-17 on the season. Not only will this be Indiana's second game in as many nights, it will be its third game in four days. The 76ers have had two days off so they will have the fresher legs. It's been a disappointing season for Philadelphia, largely because it hasn't been able to get Andrew Bynum on the court. Still, the 76ers have been competitive at home where they are 18-17. They have been playing well recently and have covered the spread in three of their last four games as a result. Two of those covers came against the Miami Heat, who they played to a four-point game Wednesday. The 76ers should be lacking no confidence here following that performance. They should be lacking no motivation either because they were held to just 69 points in a blowout loss the last time Indiana visited (02/06/2013). The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on 2 days' rest. They are also 18-7 ATS in home games off a home loss over the last 3 seasons and 17-5 ATS after having lost 8 or more of their last 10 games over the last 3 seasons. The Pacers are a soft 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games versus teams that carry a winning mark at home. Take the points.
