Pacers are the Hottest Bet in the NBA

Indiana Pacers Paul George

The Indiana Pacers have been looking like a force to be reckoned with as of late and enter Saturday’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks as winners of seven of their last nine games. The return of Paul George is a big reason why the Pacers are relevant again after a forgettable 2014/15 campaign, with the veteran coming off an impressive 34 point effort in a 112-85 demolition of the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. George has put up at least 26 points in eight straight games heading into the tilt.
