Indiana was blown out at Dallas on Friday while the Warriors were humiliated at home by the Lakers on Saturday, losing by 33 points in NBA betting.
Basketball betting has seen the Pacers lose five of their last six games overall including a poor effort against Dallas last time out. "We did not play tough enough. That's why we got pounded," coach Jim O'Brien, "You have to play with tremendous force and we did not." Danny Granger has led the Pacers in scoring this basketball betting season and he likes playing against Golden State. He had 31 points and a career-high 16 rebounds in a 108-94 win at home earlier this month against Golden State. Granger is averaging 38 points and 11.3 rebounds in his last three games against the Warriors. His career high of 42 points came against Golden State last season.
Golden State is coming off their worst basketball betting loss at home in more than three years. They were routed 130-97 by the Lakers on Saturday.
"We played a very bad game," Warriors assistant coach Keith Smart said, "We never got into the game. We didn't show our fans how we are able to play and have been playing." Monta Ellis had just 18 points on Saturday after averaging 37.7 points in his previous three games.
Indiana has a couple of positive basketball betting trends. The Pacers are 4-1 in basketball betting in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Pacers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. the Pacific division. The problem in NBA betting for Indiana is that they are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Pacers are 8-2 in basketball betting in the last 10 meetings against Golden State though.
Golden State has been okay in basketball betting for the most part. The Warriors are 6-2 in NBA betting in their last 8 games overall. The Warriors are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. the Eastern Conference.
Looking at the basketball betting total we see that 3 of the last 5 Indiana games have gone over. Six of their last eight road games have gone over in basketball betting. 9 of their last 14 versus the NBA Pacific have gone over in basketball betting. 12 of the last 16 meetings between the two teams have gone over in NBA betting.
