The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Indiana's last 12 games against LA Lakers.
Indiana are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
With the return of Anthony Davis and Lebron James the Lakers cameback and had a great game against the Knicks and now will visit the Indiana Pacers who have lost 9 of their last 10 games but might also have their best player in Haliburton back in the game who has been out for 10 games. However, he should be limited in minutes so the Pacers will again be shorthanded in offense against a Lakers team who has been on fire offensively. Give me the Lakers.
