The Line: Indiana Pacers -4.5 -- Over/Under: 210.5 See the Latest Odds
The Portland Trailblazers and the Indiana Pacers do battle tonight at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Trailblazers have won seven of their last eight games and they will look to stay hot after beating the shorthanded Bulls by 103-95 last night. Damian Lillard dominated the game with 31 points while Mason Plumlee added 16 points and nine rebounds as the Trailblazers outlasted the pesky Bulls in a defensive contest. CJ McCollum had one of his worst shooting nights of his career, making just one of 12 shots to finish with just six points so look for him to bounce back today.

Meanwhile, the Pacers have split their last six games and will be feeling a little disappointed after falling short in what would have been a great victory against the Hornets on Friday. Paul George led the way with 32 points on 13 of 26 shooting, Myles Turner added 15 points while Monta Ellis had 14 but the Hornets' Kemba Walker stole the game with the game-winning shot with just 2.4 seconds left in the game to send the Pacers to a 96-95 defeat. With the loss, Indiana falls to 31-27 overall which currently has them at sixth place in the Eastern standings.
In ATS trends, the Blazers are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall, while the Pacers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last four home games.
Head to head, the Blazers are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Pacers will be looking to atone for their disappointing loss in their last outing, but the Blazers have absolutely been on fire lately so I don't see any reason to stop backing the Blazers anytime soon.
