Both trams have been hit or miss up to this point, and it’s fair to question which side is going to show up from game to game. The New Orleans Pelicans are the better team, but they’ve had issues covering numbers lately. Also, the Pacers are hitting outside shots all of a sudden and have a bit of a pep in their step offensively. This is a lot of chalk for a road team. Give me the Pacers and points.
