The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The under is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 road games. The over is 5-2 in Pacers last 7 games as a home underdog. The Clippers are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Indiana and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Indiana.
The Los Angeles Clippers aren't the same team on the road as they are at home, and you never know who is going to play for them on the end of a back to back. The Indiana Pacers don't get much love from oddsmakers, but they've won eight of their last 10 games overall and are winning at home by an average of 6.9 points. Whether Kawhi plays or not, the Pacers are more than capable of winning this game at home. I'll take the Pacers and the free bucket.
