Team 21-41 won two-thirds and accounted for three of their last four goals after a powerful, new style of attack. They’ll be trying to keep the heat up as they take on the Orlando Magic 14-47 tonight at 7:00pm EST.
Orlando beat Indiana 119-118 earlier this month and have covered the odds for themselves in two of their last three, but bettors can count on them as a rare or expensive favorite. treatment located in Pacers?
This is odds via WynnBET:
This is only the fifth time in an entire season that Orlando is a favorite, and with good reason. They’re 28th in net rating for the year behind crime at 28 and defense at 24. The Magic has only won once in the past year but the fundamentals show some improvement. Behind the strong play of Wendell Carter Jr and rookie Franz Wagner, their defense is ranked 18th in terms of net stats in the last 15 games. Baby footsteps.
Meanwhile, the Pacers have decided to dodge the defense together while Myles Turner is still battling injury and is just trying to score as much as possible for their opponents. They are 29th in defensive rating in the last 15 matches but 15th in offensive rating. With only 2-8 against their last 10, the result isn’t for Indiana fans but I’m always delighted to see their names on the schedule.
Why am I nervous? Because this team of Pacers is an auto-terminating team machine. The scoreline is 13-2 in their last 15 matches and the oddsmakers can’t keep up with all the points. Indiana played at the ninth-fastest pace in the league since the trade deadline and was pleased with the shots with their strong-belt shooters and living with the consequences defensively.
This match is perfect for us than the bettors. Orlando is at the top of their pace of play over the last 15, and their tempo has increased weekly over the last month, so they’re trying to keep playing faster. This change in mindset has given them an 8-4 lead from their previous dozen games and I expect we will see another high scoring run tonight.
Until Myles Turner comes back, keep taking the Indiana train all the way to the bank.
