The Line: Indiana Pacers -3 -- Over/Under: 199 See the Latest Odds
The Chicago Bulls travel to Bankers Life Fieldhouse to battle the surging Indiana Pacers tonight.
The Bulls will be going for their sixth win in five games tonight after beating the Trailblazers by 93-88 on Tuesday. Jimmy Butler led the way with 22 points on six of 13 shooting while Derrick Rose returned from a two-game absence to add 17 points on seven of 20 shooting as the Bulls shot 38.4 percent from the field. It certainly wasn't the best shooting night for the Bulls, but they continue to win thanks to their defense which held the Trailblazers to just 35.2 percent shooting and Damian Lillard to just four of 22 shooting. With the win, Chicago is now 9-4 on the season and 4-3 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Pacers remain under the radar despite winning nine of their last 11 games, including their last three straight. In a 123-106 win over the Wizards on Tuesday, Paul George continued his strong form with a season-high 40 points which included seven 3-pointers and he had plenty of help as CJ Miles made eight 3-pointers to finish with 32 points of his own as the Pacers finished with their highest point total for a game this season. WIth the win, Indiana improves to 9-5 on the season and 4-3 on the road where they've won three of their last four.
In ATS trends, the Bulls are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and 1-5 ATS in their last six against the Eastern Conference, while the Pacers are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
Head to head, the Bulls are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Indiana.
Both teams are coming into this game in similar form, but the Pacers really don't get enough credit for how well they've been playing lately. The Pacers have been money for a while now and I think that continues with another win tonight.
