Basketball Betting – Indiana at Charlotte

Basketball betting on the Charlotte Bobcats is definitely attracting more attention now that the Bobcats have Stephen Jackson.

Charlotte is getting some attention in NBA betting in this matchup on Sunday against Indiana. Here are some things to consider as you look at this basketball betting game between Charlotte and Indiana.

Basketball betting has seen Charlotte win six of the last ten games against Indiana. The Bobcats are also 6-4 against the NBA betting line in those games.  The teams met four times a year ago and they split the four meetings but Charlotte covered the basketball betting pointspread in three of the four.  Three of those four games also went under the NBA betting total. 

Charlotte is no longer a pushover in NBA betting now that they have Jackson. He has taken over the lead role in the scoring and he was badly needed in that regard since Charlotte has been right at the bottom of the league in points scored as basketball betting stats show. Charlotte still plays solid defense but sometimes it is not enough to get basketball betting wins. Getting some players to contribute offensively other than Jackson will be important for the Bobcats as this basketball betting season continues.

The Pacers have been right around .500 straight up and against the basketball betting odds.  The Pacers are just outside the Top 10 in the league in points scored and points allowed.  Danny Granger has been leading the Pacers in scoring this basketball betting season. Too often he has to score a lot of points for Indiana to win but things are beginning to change. Dahntay Jones, Roy Hibbert, T.J. Ford and even rookie Tyler Hansbrough have contributed this basketball betting season for Indiana.

Indiana has been a big team to take in betting under the total. They have gone under a lot this basketball betting season and that could happen again in this game against Charlotte.  The Bobcats play tough defense and could be able to keep the score down in this basketball betting contest. The one concern with taking the under in this game is the addition of Jackson for Charlotte. It is still unknown a little bit how Charlotte is going to play now that they have an offensive force on the team so keep that in mind as you look to play the total in this game.
