We have a team playing their 3rd game in 4 nights against a team with a home record of 21-1. Indiana not only wins at home they cover with a league best 16-6 against the spread record at home. Overconfidence shouldn’t be an issue with the Pacers getting crushed 124-100 in Phoenix last week. Look for them to return the favor in blowout fashion.
