The Pacers may actually be the better team in this NBA betting matchup but it is tough to take Indiana on the road. The Nets have a lot of young talent and they have shown the ability to impact basketball odds this season.
Basketball betting history shows that the Nets have owned the Pacers recently in this series. New Jersey has won 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams according to NBA betting numbers. The Nets are also 7-3 against the basketball betting number in those games. At New Jersey, the Nets have won the last six games against the Pacers according to basketball betting statistics. They also covered the NBA betting number in each of those six games. The last time Indiana won at New Jersey was back in April of 2006.
There are some interesting basketball betting trends on this game in regards to the total. 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting number. That number is not quite as impressive at New Jersey though as three of the last five games have gone over the basketball betting number.
The teams met four times last season with the home team winning each time. Three of those four games went over the NBA betting number. Three of those games had at least 216 points scored according to basketball betting stats.
Gamblers will have to decide whether to trust recent basketball betting trends and take the Nets or if they want to take the more talented team in the Pacers and try and buck the trends. Wagering on Vince Carter is always risky so gamblers might choose Indiana in this matchup. It could also be that the total is what gets wagered on more in this basketball betting matchup based on the trends.
