The Spurs have won eight of the last ten against the Pacers but they are just 5-5 against the NBA betting odds.
Basketball betting has these two teams playing an excellent game in late December in San Antonio that the Spurs just pulled out 100-99 as Tim Duncan hit the game winning shot. That has kind of been the story in this series as the Spurs usually win but don’t cover the NBA betting line. In games at Indiana, the Spurs have won three of the last five but they are just 2-3 against the basketball betting odds. The last five meetings between the teams at Indiana have all gone over the basketball betting total.
The Pacers have really not been that good at home vs. the basketball betting number lately as they are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. Indiana has also struggled against the Western Conference, going 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games. The Pacers are really poor against the Southwest Division as they are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games. The Pacers are 11-15 at home this season in basketball betting. The Pacers have really struggled for the most part this season with a weak defense that is 25th in the league and a subpar offense that ranks 17th in the league.
The Spurs are just 10-12 this season on the road in NBA betting. The Spurs are playing solid defense as they are 8th in the league in fewest points allowed but they are just 14th on offense. A big key for San Antonio on Wednesday could be the health of Tony Parker. He is questionable for this game and the Spurs are a much better team with him in the lineup.
The last four San Antonio games overall have gone under the total and the last four San Antonio road games have gone under. Against Eastern Conference teams, three of the last four San Antonio games have gone under. Nine of the last thirteen Indiana games have gone under the basketball betting total. In this series though, the last seven meetings at Indiana have gone over and 12 of the last 15 overall between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total.
