The Indiana Pacers look to snap a four-game losing streak. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 113.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting.

The Indiana Pacers are allowing 39.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game.
The Detroit Pistons need a win after losing nine of their last 12 games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 109 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Jerami Grant is averaging 24.3 points and 5.5 rebounds while Josh Jackson is averaging 12.3 points and 1.9 assists.

The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Pistons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games. The over is 9-4 in Pistons last 13 overall. The Pacers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Detroit and 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers are on the end of a back to back, and that's not what you want to see from a struggling team that's lost four straight and is getting torched defensively during this stretch. The Detroit Pistons aren't a team I've backed a lot this season, but they had a decent road trip and took the Lakers to overtime while beating the Nets. In fact, the same Nets that lit the Pacers on fire last night. I'd take a stab with the Pistons and the free points.
