The Indiana Pacers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 113.7 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 114.4 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 21.5 points and 5.2 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 19.9 points and six assists. Caris LeVert is the third double-digit scorer and Doug McDermott is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.
The Orlando Magic need a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 104.2 points on 43 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Terrence Ross is averaging 15.6 points and 3.4 rebounds while Wendall Carter Jr. is averaging 14.5 points and 1.8 assists.

The Pacers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 9-20 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Magic are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Pacers last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Magic last 6 overall. The Pacers are 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Orlando and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers are a tough team to get behind due to their inconsistency, their injuries and the fact they're on the end of a back to back here. With that said, the Orlando Magic have lost 10 of their last 11 games and are losing their last five games by an average of 11.4 points while shooting 43.1 percent from the field. I don't care what the Pacers have going on, they should find a way to win this game and cover the reasonable number. Give me the Pacers and the chalk.
