Preview

The Indiana Pacers will play their 2nd game at home when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves. These teams met in November and the Twolves won the game 100-98 at Minnesota but the Pacers covered as +4 pts underdogs.

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES

The Timberwolves will try to avoid a 3rd straight loss after losing to the Bulls in Chicago. Anthony Edwards scored 31. Karl-Anthony Towns had 27 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. D'Angelo Russell added 18 points. Minnesota led 100-97 early in the fourth when the Bulls went on that 15-2 run.

The team is struggling in defense, they allowed 132 and 134 points in the last 2 games. Offensively they don't have a problem as they rank 5th best in the NBA with 113.05 ppg, they just gotta found the way to work on that defense if they want to win the games.

INDIANA PACERS

The Pacers have lost 5 games in a row and have lost 16 of 21 games in 2022 and with Brogdon and Turner out I wouldn't expect things to change. They are losing by an avg of 9.8 pts in their last 5 games.

Indiana lost to Cleveland 113-120 as +6 pts underdogs. Indiana Pacers fans welcomed back Caris LeVert with a loud ovation during pregame introductions but LeVert scored 22 points, had five assists and delivered lockdown defense late in the game to help the Cleveland Cavaliers to beat them.

Tyrese Haliburton ran the point and had 23 points and six assists in his Pacers debut and Indiana opened the game by making 10 of 12 from 3-point range while scoring an NBA franchise record 47 points in the first quarter, but that didn't last.

BETTING TRENDS

Minnesota are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Minnesota's last 9 games.

Indiana are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Indiana's last 10 games.

Prediction

The Pacers are averaging 112.17 pts at home and the Twolves 116.43 ppg on the road. With the Pacers allowing 112.21 ppg at home and the Twolves 117.07 on the road, this game will have for sure a high score. Over seems like the right choice.

PICK: Over 236 (-110)
