- Each of the last six games between the Pacers and Hawks at State Farm Arena have gone OVER the total points line.
The Atlanta Hawks are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but that's about it. This line doesn't make sense to me. The Hawks have lost 4 of their last 6 games, they've been underachievers dating back to last year, and they're 4-8 ATS on the season. The Pacers keep winning games, they're rolling offensively, and they're a profitable 7-5 ATS on the year. I have to grab the points with the Pacers.
