The Indiana Pacers continue on the road and will travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls at the United Center on Wednesday night. These teams met 4 times last season and the Bulls won 3 of those games.
The Pacers get here with a 1-3 record after losing 120-106 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Tyrese Haliburton led the Pacers with 19 points and 10 assists. Buddy Hield had 18 points. The team made only 12 of 44 3-point attempts.
Tyrese Haliburton leads the team averaging 24.3 points and 9.8 assists for the Pacers. J. Smith is averaging 8.8 rebounds per game for Indiana.
In their last 10 games the Pacers are 1-9, averaging 119.6 points, 52.0 rebounds, 28.3 assists, 9.2 steals and 8.2 blocks per game while shooting 48.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 125.7 points
The Bulls get here with a 2-2 record and 1-1 at hoome so far this season. They're coming from a great performance in the 120-102 win against the Boston Celtics. DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points, Nikola Vucevic added 18 points and 23 rebounds. Ayo Dosunmu scored 22. Zach LaVine, playing his second game after missing the first two, added 19 points, helping the Bulls stop a two-game skid and pick up their first win since the opener at Miami.
DeMar DeRozan leads the team with 26.8 points and 5.3 assists per game while Nicola Vucevic is grabbing 13 rebounds per game for the Bulls.
In their last 10 games, the Bulls are 4-6, averaging 103.1 points, 43.3 rebounds, 22.4 assists, 6.9 steals and 3.0 blocks per game while shooting 44.4% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 110.7 points.
INJURIES: Lonzo Ball is out.
Indiana are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games against Chicago.
Indiana are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Chicago.
Indiana are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
Indiana are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Chicago.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Chicago's last 9 games.
Chicago are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Chicago's last 5 games against Indiana.
Chicago are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games at home.
The Pacers have been one of the best offensive teams in the league but they're also one of the worst defenses in the NBA, scoring 121 points per game but allowing 122. The Bulls beat the Booston Celtics in their last game at home and I can see them scoring easy on this game against a team that has lost 13 of their last 14 games and struggles on the road. I expect a double digit win for the Bulls.
PICK: Bulls -7.5 (-110)
