The Line: Phoenix Suns +5 -- Over/Under: 197 See the Latest Odds
The Indiana Pacers look to stay hot when they travel to Arizona to take on the Phoenix Suns tonight.
The Pacers have won eight of their last nine and will be looking to build on a five-game winning streak after taking down the Warriors by 102-94 on Monday. Paul George had a nice game of 23 points while David West added 17 points as the Pacers built a 20-point lead in the third quarter, only to see it shrink to just two late in the game before regrouping and closing out the game to improve to 33-7 overall and 12-6 on the road where they will play their next four which starts at Phoenix tonight.

Meanwhile, the Suns have lost four of their last six but are coming off a nice 117-103 win over the Nuggets thanks to a season-high 30 points from Channing Frye who made five of seven three point attempts. Markieff Morris added 16 points off the bench while Goran Dragic added 15 as the Suns never trailed and improved to 3-0 against the Nuggets this season with one meeting left to play. With the win, Phoenix improves to 23-17 overall and 14-6 at home where they've won four of their last five.
In ATS trends, the Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a win and 38-17 ATS in their last 55 games overall, while the Suns are 15-6 ATS in tehir last 21 games against a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a win.
Head to head, the Pacers are 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings overall but the road team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Suns have really been fighting above their weight this season but they really haven't looked nearly as dangerous with Eric Bledsoe on the sidelines, so I'm just going to stick with my gut and take the red-hot Pacers to win and cover on the road.
