  • The Cavaliers have failed to cover the spread in each of their last 12 games following a win.
  • Eight of the Cavaliers’ last nine games as favorites have gone OVER the total points line.

Pacers vs Cavaliers prediction

A massive game for both sides as the Cavs are playing for a top-4 seed and the Pacers hope to stay out of the play-in tournament. With that said, I’m leaning toward the Cavaliers and the small chalk at home. The Cavs have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Pacers, and that includes an upset last month on the road as 7 point underdogs. The Cavs are as healthy as they’ve been in a while, and 25 of their 47 wins have come at home. I’ll side with home court and history by laying the bucket with the Cavaliers.
