The Pacers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Heat are 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 4-0 in Pacers last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in Heat last 7 home games. The Pacers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers have not been able to string together covers or wins this season, so they're a hard team to trust on a nightly basis. The Miami Heat got embarrassed by the Pacers on Friday night, but they're still playing their best ball of the season and have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Pacers while covering four of the last five meetings. I expect the Heat to bounce back here. I'll lay the reasonable number with the home team.
