There is one NBA pick tonight.
Indiana Pacers +4 spread against Utah Jazz for 3% of the bankroll.
This is a matchup where we believe a lot of value has opened up on the home team. The Utah Jazz are coming off an impressive performance as they defeated the Boston Celtics, 98-86 in the Garden in their most recent game. It was certainly an impressive performance, especially being able to come away with the win, on the road, against that caliber of opponent. That performance will certainly be fresh in the betting public's mind ahead of their matchup with the often-overlooked Indiana Pacers.
The Pacers are one of the teams in the East, that no one is really talking about, despite the fact that they are 10-6 on the season. This is a solid team, that has a lot of pieces in place and could be a dark horse in the East come postseason play. Even though they are somewhat overlooked, we believe tonight's matchup will force even more people to not only look away, but potentially fade them since Victor Oladipo has been ruled out of this contest. Oladipo is certainly a talent, however, this Pacers team embodies exactly what it means to play as a team, and typically get contributions from nearly everywhere on the court. They are an incredibly deep team, and that depth will certainly put the Jazz to the test tonight.
Let's not forget, that prior to their big win over the Celtics, the Jazz had been underperforming having lost their previous 2 games on the road. This will be their final road game before a much-deserved day off and they travel back home. With their confidence high off their big win, we wouldn't be surprised if the Jazz come into this matchup looking ahead just a bit. If that is indeed the case, they will be lucky to leave Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a win, let alone by more than a possession. We like Indiana to win this game outright, which opens up value in taking the points tonight.
