Pacers-Pistons Games Cashing OVERs

November seems like a long time ago for the Indiana Pacers, as the team failed to follow up that hot month by gliding through a rocky December. The Pacers have an opportunity to start 2016 with some consistency when the Detroit Pistons come to town in Saturday’s NBA action.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 6-0 in the Pacers last 6 games following a ATS loss.
  • The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings with Indiana.
  • The underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between the Pistons and Pacers.

When the Pacers and Pistons collide, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings between the teams. Detroit comes into the game cashing OVER tickets with ease, with the O/U going 8-2 in their previous 10 tilts.

Indiana allowed an average of 87.5 points in a pair of consecutive wins over Minnesota and Atlanta before losing to the Chicago Bulls in overtime and then allowing the Milwaukee Bucks to shoot a sizzling 58.4 percent from the floor in Thursday’s 120-116 loss.

Needless to say, solid efforts on the defensive end of the floor are going to be needed from the Pacers this year if they have any aspirations of making a deep playoff run.
