The Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers meet Monday in NBA action at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Nets vs Pacers prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets were starting to turn things around with three wins in a row, before they got stopped in their tracks by the Lakers in a 116-104 loss last night. Cam Thomas led the team with 30 points and six assists, Trendon Watford added 15 points off the bench while Dennis Schroder chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Nets shot 42 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they got off to one of their worst starts of the season and they were just never in the contest after getting outscored by 31-11 in the first quarter. The Nets actually trailed by as many as 26 points at one stage before they made a run in the third quarter to make it somewhat interesting at the end. The Nets will take on the Pistons after this b2b set against the Pacers.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in decent shape as they've won four of their last six games overall and they will be feeling pretty good after blowing past the in-form Lakers in a 109-90 home win on Friday. Pascal Siakam led the team with 22 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, Tyrese Haliburton added 21 points with eight rebounds and eight assists while TJ McConnell chipped in with 16 points in just 19 minutes off the bench. As a team, the Pacers shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 31 from the 3-point line, but this win was more about their defense as they kept the Lakers in check early on to take the early lead, before they dominated the second half by 55-41 to come away with the impressive blowout win at home.

Nets vs Pacers prediction

The Nets are still missing Ben Simmons and Keita Bates-Diop, while the Pacers are still without Bennedict Mathurin. The Nets were starting to get on a roll before last night's tough loss to the Lakers, while the Pacers are coming into this one fresh off a big win over the Lakers. The line is perhaps a bit hefty, but the Nets are playing their second game of a back to back set, while the Pacers should be well-rested as they haven't played since Friday. I think the Pacers will be too much for the Nets to handle in this one, so I'm backing the Pacers to maintain their momentum with another win and cover.
