Denver Nuggets vs Indiana Pacers prediction

The Indiana Pacers are coming off a horrible week, and it’s hard to get behind them here when Tyrese Haliburton is questionable with a hamstring injury. The Denver Nuggets are the healthier team, and they’re coming off a strong week and some nice wins during this road trip. The Nuggets have won 7 straight games against the Pacers and have covered 4 of those games as well. The Pacers should be excited to play their first home game in nearly two weeks, but they’re in a shaky form, and they could still be down their best payer. I’ll lay the bucket with the Nuggets.
