Pacers 104, Warriors 103
Indiana (-250) is the favorite, but I don't want to risk an NBA bet at that price - every $2.50 wagered only profits a $1 if the Pacers prevail. They are 12-11 on the road, while Golden State is 7-16 at home. The Warriors actually offer value at +200, but I'll PASS and focus on the spread.
The WARRIORS ( +6.5, - 115) is the STRONGEST PLAY. Before getting smoked by a good Utah team Wednesday, Golden State covered its last two home games. They beat the Orlando Magic 109-95 as a six-point dog Jan. 18 and lost to the Denver Nuggets 134-131 in OT as a 3.5-point dog Jan. 16. They'll want to play better after the Jazz blowout.
New to sports betting? Every $1.15 wagered on the Warriors spread will profit $1 if they win outright or don't lose by 7 points or more.
The UNDER 216.5 (- 129) is worth backing. Golden State's 105.4 points per game ranks 26th in the league, while Indiana's 109.1 PPG checks in 21st. With Brogdon out -injured in the previous game - the Pacers' lose 17.1 PPG and their assists leader (7.3 APG). Plus, the Warriors are 9-14 O/U at home.
