Pacers at Trail Blazers: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Blazers 115, Pacers 109

Money line (ML)

The Blazers have won four in a row and now get to kick-off seven straight games at home, although they are playing their second straight night. The Pacers are 3-1 on the road and have split the first two games of their four-game road trip. They are a team in transition with the trade of SG Victor Oladipo.

Take the BLAZERS (-150).

Against the spread (ATS)

The 2.5-point spread doesn't leave much room for error here. Indiana's work against the spread this season has been consistent. They have covered in all their wins and have not covered in any of their losses. They are 3-0 straight up and ATS as underdogs this season.

Portland is 5-6 ATS overall, covering the spread in five of their seven wins. They are 4-4 ATS as favorites but only 1-4 ATS at home. That said, expecting a Portland win straight up, it doesn't make sense to predict a Pacers cover with only a 2.5-point spread.

Take the BLAZERS -2.5 (-115).

Over/Under (O/U)

Both teams combine to average over 233 points per game this season. Defensively, they allow a combined 226 points. Each total set in Portland's last seven games has been over 230 and they have gone Under in four of them.

They are 3-5 O/U with a total set of at least 228.5. The 228.5 is the second-highest total set in any Pacers' game this season. Their games' total has been 220 or more only five times. They are 3-2 O/U in those games. Take UNDER 229.5 POINTS (-110).
