Over/Under Total Pick:
The Pacers have held their opponent to under 100 points in 14 of their last 16 home games. There is nothing to suggest that will change tonight. The Lakers allowed 104 points at home to Indiana and if they can do the same on the road tonight this game should stay well under the posted over/under line. Take the UNDER 202.
