The Indiana Pacers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 110 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting. TJ Warren is averaging 18.2 points and 3.7 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.1 points and 4.6 assists.

The Bulls are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games, 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 road games and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest. The Pacers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The under is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 road games. The over is 12-5 in Pacers last 17 overall. The Bulls are 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Indiana. The under is 22-7 in the last 29 meetings in Indiana and 15-6 in the last 21 meetings.
The Chicago Bulls have covered a lot of road games as of late and are now finding ways to turn these close losses into victories. Despite their road struggles, the Bulls only lose by an average of 2.6 points. The Indiana Pacers are hot, but they're only winning their last five games by an average of .8 points and are allowing 48 percent shooting from the field during that stretch. I want the points with the scrappy Bulls.
