Are the Surprising Pacers Getting Enough Respect From Books?

The Indiana Pacers are quietly one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now and have won six of their last seven games, with the lone loss in that span coming against the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics. Indy has its hands full on the road vs the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

MyBookie opened the Pacers as 11.5-point road underdogs with a total of 224.

Shark Bites
  • The Pacers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Western Southwest teams.
  • The Pacers are 3-1 SU and ATS in their last four games against the Rockets.
  • The Rockets are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games in November.

Victor Oladipo, who sat out the loss to the Celtics on Saturday, collected 26 points in an easy 121-109 triumph over the Orlando Magic on Monday. The 25-year-old was a bit of an afterthought after he went to Indiana in the Paul George trade this summer but he’s established himself as the true leader of this team thanks to averages of 23 points, 3.8 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game in 2017-18.

On the flip side, Houston has won five straight and 11 of its last 12 heading into this one, due largely to the efforts of James Harden. Harden, who leads the NBA in scoring at 31.7 points per game, finished two assists shy of a triple-double on Monday and is averaging 34.4 points during the five-game run. The Rockets top the Association with an average of 44.6 three-point attempts and are connecting at a 36.1 percent clip.

When the Rockets face Eastern Conference opposition, the OVER is trending. In Houston’s previous eight vs Eastern Conference foes, the OVER is 6-2.
