The Indiana Pacers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 113.1 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.2 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 21.4 points and 4.7 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 20.1 points and 6.2 assists. Caris LeVert is the third double-digit scorer and Myles Turner is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 38.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.7 rebounds per game.
The Dallas Mavericks look for a win after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 112.5 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 111.1 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 28.6 points and 9.1 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 20 points and 8.6 rebounds.

The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Pacers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win. The over is 6-1 in Pacers last 7 overall. The under is 10-4 in Mavericks last 14 overall. The Pacers are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers continue to run hot and cold this season and aren't a team I'm running to the window to back on the road or against respectable teams. The Dallas Mavericks have not only won 10 of their last 14 contests, but they're winning their last five games by an average of 12 points while shooting 51.7 percent from the field. The Pacers lose in the underdog role by an average of 4.3 points. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Mavs at home.
