The Pacers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss. The Pelicans are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games following a S.U. loss. The Pacers are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in New Orleans and 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
I'm simply going with the Pacers here because I don't know how healthy the Pelicans are. However, the best bet would be staying away from this game.
