Pacers Have Been an UNDER Machine

Indiana Pacers Paul George

The Indiana Pacers are beginning to look like their normal selves again and will have an opportunity to keep the good times rolling Wednesday in the Windy City.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 8-0 in the Pacers last 8 games.
  • The home team is 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings between the Bulls and Pacers.
  • The Bulls are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Indiana will be attempting to garner a third straight win while limiting their opponents to under 90 points when they face off against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. The last time these clubs collided was on Nov. 16 when the Bulls emerged triumphant by a score of 93-87 - one of just two losses by Indy in the month.

Chicago has been a hard team to read this season, and it’s becoming increasingly evident the transition under rookie coach Fred Hoiberg has not been seamless. The Bulls have just two wins in their last five, but are coming off a 104-97 win over Toronto that saw three bench players combine for an impressive 51 points.
