The Pacers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a road underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Jazz are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite. The over is 9-3 in Pacers last 12 overall. The over is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
Both of these teams have been profitable ATS and it's hard to fade either one of them. We've backed both the Pacers and Jazz a lot this season, and they're currently two of the hotter teams in the league. That's why I'm going to take the free points with the Pacers and call it a day. As well as the Jazz have been playing, the Pacers have proven they can win on the road and are shooting 50.1 percent from the field during their current five-game winning streak. I can't leave this many free buckets on the table.
