The Pacers are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 Wednesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Timberwolves are 12-27 ATS in their last 39 home games and 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Timberwolves last 5 overall. The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the end of a back to back and have been fade material all season long, but I'm not running to the window to back the Pacers. The Indiana Pacers are piling up the losses in their own right, winning their last five games by an average of 0.4 points and win on the road by an average of just 1.8 points. I'm not thrilled about backing the Timberwolves, but it's the direction I'd lean if forced to pick this game.
