The Pacers are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 Saturday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win. The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Pacers last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 Saturday games. The Pacers are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers aren't a team I'm thrilled to back in any shape or form, but this is a boatload of points, and the Pacers are 8-4 against the spread as a double-digit underdog this season. The Philadelphia 76ers are still fighting for the third seed, so they should be a motivated bunch, but they've also been hit or miss in their play recently. The 76ers are also 4-9 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season, and they only win at home by an average of 2.6 points. I'll take my chances with the free points here, even if the Pacers are terrible.
