The over is 4-0 in Pacers last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 19-7 in Nets last 26 overall. The Pacers are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn and 10-3 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back and they're not a team I'm looking to lay big chalk with because of their subpar defense, but we're only being asked to lay two points here. While an above average team in their own right, the Indiana Pacers are struggling right now and losing their last five games by an average of seven points while allowing 47 percent shooting from the field. The Nets should be able to get the job done here, getting a much needed victory.
