The Sacramento Kings are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost 11 of their last 15 road games.
The Indiana Pacers look for another nice home win to get a game above a .500 record. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 111.2 points on 48.3 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Victor Oladipo is averaging 25.5 points and 3.2 assists while Myles Turner is averaging 21 points and 14 rebounds.

The Kings are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pacers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Kings are 6-2-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Indiana, 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I said in my NBA previews that the Indiana Pacers will be a surprise team in the East and make the playoffs despite being over +200 odds to make the postseason. Well, with Myles Turner playing just one game, the Pacers are currently .500 and beat the Timberwolves on the road while just defeating the Spurs on Sunday. Still a long way to go, but you have to like what you see from the Pacers right now. The Kings still aren't playing a lick of defense and are shooting just 41 percent on the road. I'll take the Pacers and the reasonable chalk.
