Indiana Pacers vs. Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are listed as a 9-point home favorite over the visiting Indiana Pacers.  The over/under total is set at 215.  Log-on to to place wagers on this game, as it’s the only NBA game played today.

The Denver Nuggets are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games with the tal splitting at 3-3.  The Indiana Pacers are 5-3 against the spread, since January 1st.  Denver had a 4-game home winning streak going until they lost Friday to the Los Angeles Lakers 107-97 as a 1-point home underdog.  The Nuggets struggled defensively in this game allowing the Lakers to shoot 53.4 percent from the field.  They were also outrebounded in the contest 47-27.  The games combined 204 points went below the tal of 209.  The der is 3-0 in the Nuggets last three games.  Denver is 11-13 against the spread in its first 24 home games, with the er going 14-10.  Denver is averaging 110.4 points per game at home.

Indiana is in the midst of a 4-game losing streak after losing last night in Portland.  They are also coming off a back-to-back, which makes this game, awfully difficult for them.  Also, their starting center, Roy Hibbert is estionable for the contest due to an illness.  The Pacers are 8-11 against the spread in their first 19 road games this year.  The der is 11-8 when the Pacers are the road team.  The Pacers give up 100.7 points in their road games this year.

The Indiana Pacers beat the Denver Nuggets when these two teams played in November.  They actually killed them 144-113, as a one-point home underdog.  Indiana shot 64.4 percent from the field in this game and buried 16 three-pointers.  Denver was tired due to playing their fourth game in five nights.  This time the Pacers will be the tired team playing last night.  The Pacers are 4-5 against the spread when they have no rest between games.  The Indiana Pacers are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games verses the Nuggets.  The er has also gone 4-2 in the last six.

I am going to take the Indiana Pacers in this game.  Although, I don’t believe they will win the game, I believe that 9-points is way too much here.  I look for the Nuggets to win a close game.  I will also take the er in this game as both teams play up-tempo.  This game should be an entertaining one.
