The team is averaging 103.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 111.9 points on 46.1 percent shooting.

Wendell Carter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Jalen Suggs is grabbing 3.7 rebounds.

Magic are 3-7 in their last 10 games and 1-11 last 12 games playing at home against Indiana.

BETTING TRENDS

Indiana are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.

Indiana are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against Orlando.

Orlando are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games at home.

Orlando are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Prediction

Looks like the Pacers are starting to play better with the new squad, they just destroyed the Celtics 128-107, their only problem is the defensive side, they're allowing 112.23 ppg but well Orlando isn't much better as they're allowing 112.37 ppg at home and losing by an average of 10 points and are 8-19 ATS at home. This will be an offensive battle where I belive the Pacers are better.
