Indiana Pacers vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

I'm never excited to lay big chalk with a Pacers team that doesn't like to play defense. However, the same can be said about the Spurs and it's probably worse. In fact, when the Pacers and Spurs clashed in November, Indiana scored 152 points and won by 41 points. This should be an offensive explosion, but I do expect the Pacers to pull sway at some point. The Spurs are 6-21 SU at home, and the Pacers are a profitable 32-26-3 ATS on the season. It's Pacers or pass for me.
