ATS Matchup Stats | Gambling Insight!

In their last games the Pacers beat the Boston Celtics 994-83 and the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Sacramento Kings 115-98.

The 76ers are in the midst of their 2nd longest losing streak of all time, as they have dropped 18 straight. Still, while they are HUGE 16-point home underdogs they will be facing a Pacers’ team that has lost their last 3 road games.

Andrew Bynum played well with 8 points and 10 boards in only 16 minutes of play in his first action since signing with the Pacers. The team may need more of his production, as starting C Roy Hibbert has been struggling only averaging 7.8 ppg and 4.7 rebounds per game in his last 6 games.

The Pacers are still 2 games ahead of the Heat in the East and if they can get home court advantage throughout the playoffs it is likely they will face Miami, yet again, in the conference finals.
Paul George suffered a hand injury in the win over the Celtics and if he cannot go Evan Turner will get the start. Turner averaged over 17 ppg as a starter for Philly this season and since being traded he has averaged 9.3 ppg off the bench for Indiana.

The 76ers’ offense ranks 18th in the league in scoring and in their 18-game skid they are only averaging 96.3 ppg. They will be facing a Pacers’ defense that is the top ranked unit in the league. The Pacers do not have a high scoring offense, but at least they are facing a Philly defense that ranks 30th in the league.

For the 76ers to have any chance to win they have to play decent defense and get good games from the duo of Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams.

Jason’s Pick:

I am going to buck the trends and while the 76ers will not snap their losing streak they will cover the big spread at home.
