The Utah Jazz play host to the Indiana Pacers at the Vivint Arena on Thursday night.

The Indiana Pacers have been in decent form as they’ve won three of their past five games, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after falling just short to the depleted Nuggets in a 101-98 road loss last night. Malcolm Brogdon led the team with 25 points and five assists, Domantas Sabonis added 20 points with 19 rebounds and two assists while TJ McConnell provided the spark off the bench with 16 points and nine assists. As a team, the Pacers shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line as they fought hard to rally back into the contest after suffering a slow start, before coming up just short in the end as Jeremy Lamb missed on the final shot which would’ve sent the game into overtime. Chris Duarte had a rough night as he scored just six points on two of nine shooting while Justin Holiday finished with six points on two of eight shooting.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their first 11 games and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Hawks in a 110-98 home win on Tuesday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 27 points on 11 of 20 shooting, Bojan Bogdanovic added 18 points while Jordan Clarkson chipped in with 16 points off the bench. As a team, the Jazz shot 50 percent from the field and 15 of 38 from the 3-point line as they took control of the game early, pouring in 32 points in the second quarter to take a 12-point lead into halftime, before going on another run in the third quarter to push the margin out to 18 points. Mike Conley had a quiet game of 12 points with six assists while Rudy Gobert scored just nine points in 24 minutes of action.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pacers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days’ rest. 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Jazz are 7-2 ATS in their last nine home games, 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a losing record and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games as a favorite.

The Pacers are a little shorthanded and their confidence took a major hit after last night’s loss to the Nuggets who were playing without their three best players in Nikola Jokic, Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray, so it’s tough to back them against a red-hot Jazz team who are always so tough to beat at the Vivint Arena. It's tempting to take the Pacers with the points, but the Jazz are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a losing record and I think that trend continues here as the Jazz roll to another easy win and cover.
