The Orlando Magic play host to the Indiana Pacers at the Amway Center on Monday night.

The Indiana Pacers have been in a major slump as they’ve lost eight of their past 10 games overall, but they will be eager to stay hot in this one after blowing past the Celtics in a 128-107 upset win last night. Oshae Brissett led the team with 27 points on nine of 14 shooting, Tyrese Haliburton added 22 points with nine assists, Buddy Hield scored 21 points while Malcolm Brogdon chipped in with 20 points, six rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Pacers shot 52 percent from the field and a sizzling 17 of 33 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 39 points in the second quarter to take the 11-point lead into halftime, before finishing with a flurry in the fourth quarter to make it a complete blowout.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in a slump as they’ve lost six of their last eight games overall, but they will be aiming to build some momentum after arresting a four-game slide with a 119-111 home win over the Rockets on Friday. Chuma Okeke led the team with 26 points, nine rebounds and four assists off the bench, Wendell Carter added 24 points with 12 rebounds while Cole Anthony chipped in with 14 points and six assists. As a team, the Magic shot 50 percent from the field and 13 of 36 from the 3-point line as they outscored the Rockets by 31-18 in the second quarter to take the lead into halftime, before going on another 11-2 run late in the fourth quarter to pull away and escape with the much-needed victory.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pacers are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games playing on zero days’ rest and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall. The Magic are 9-26-1 ATS in their last 36 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team below .400.

Head to head, the over is 8-1 in the last nine meetings overall, the Pacers are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and the Pacers are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Orlando.

The Pacers will again be without Myles Turner, TJ Warren and TJ McConnell and Lance Stephenson is listed as questionable, while the Magic are still missing Moritz Wagner, Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac. The Pacers have been a real disappointment so far this season, but they looked like a different team in their dominant win over the surging Celtics last night, so I’m sticking with the Pacers who are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Orlando.
