Portland are 13-4 SU in their last 17 games against Indiana.

Portland are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Portland's last 5 games when playing on the road against Indiana.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Indiana's last 5 games.

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

Prediction

The Trail Blazers have lost 5 of their last 7 games and Jerami Grant is questionable for this game after he left the last game due to injury. The Pacers have been playing better lately and were on a hot streak before losing by only 3 points against the 76ers. The Blazers have lost 5 straight games on the road and with the Pacers hot right now it will be tough for them to win this game. I'm going with the Pacers at home.
