Indiana Pacers vs Utah Jazz prediction

I've been backing the Utah Jazz a ton during this winning streak as they're racking up the victories, and they've covered 8 of their last 10 games. You should be eager to keep getting behind the Jazz as long as this hot streak continues. With that said, the Indiana Pacers are a scoring machine with or without Haliburton, and they're not a team I want to leave a bunch of points on the table with. With a cover of the Nuggets last night, the Pacers are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games. This line feels like an overreaction. Give me the Pacers and the points.
