The Line: Indiana Pacers -4 -- Over/Under: 200 See the Latest Odds
The Indiana Pacers play host to the Charlotte Hornets tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Pacers have won five of their last seven games and were good enough to sneak past the Lakers in an 89-87 win on Monday. George Hill had a nice game of 15 points and six assists while Myles Turner had 14 points, but with the Pacers down 84-80 with 1:10 left in the game, it was Paul George seven of the teams last nine points to steal the victory. With the win, Indiana improves to 28-24 on the season and 17-8 at home.

Meanwhile, the Hornets have won four of their last five games and were dominant in Monday's 108-91 win over the Bulls. Kemba Walker poured in 30 points, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 20 points while Nicolas Batum had 19 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists as the Hornets took full advantage of a Bulls team missing their top two scorers in Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler. With the easy win, Charlotte improves to 26-26 ovreall and 19-9 at home.
In ATS trends, the Hornets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team following a win of more than 10 points and 4-1 ATS in their last five against a team with a winning record, while the Pacers are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games following a win.
Head to head, the Hornets are 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last six meetings in Indiana.
The Pacers were pretty lucky to escape with a win over the Lakers in their last outing, but I think they just might struggle against this streaky Hornets team who have been playing very good basketball lately.
