Basketball Betting – New Orleans Hornets vs. Indiana Pacers

February 1st, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting action on Sunday includes a game on NBA-TV between the New Orleans Hornets and Indiana Pacers. This should be a very competitive game in NBA betting  based on past trends as the teams have split their last 10 meetings. Basketball history shows that the Hornets are 6-4 against the NBA betting pointspread in the last ten meetings against Indiana.  The Hornets have won three of the last five games at Indiana as basketball stats indicate.  The teams met twice last season and split their two meetings as basketball betting results show with each team winning on the road.

The Hornets have the higher profile in this basketball matchup considering they have Chris Paul and a defense that is ranked in the Top 5 in the league.  That doesn’t mean New Orleans is always covering the NBA betting pointspread though, because they are not.  They are right around .500 against the basketball betting number this season. They are a much better wager to go under the basketball odds because of their strong defense.  In fact, in this basketball betting matchup you will notice that five of the last seven games between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting total.

Indiana has been almost the opposite of New Orleans this season.  The Pacers have an offense that is ranked in the Top 10 as basketball stats show but their defense is near the bottom of the league.  The Pacers though can hang with teams because of their offense led by Danny Granger, and that is why they have been above the .500 mark for much of the season against the basketball betting number.  They are also an over team since they score points and have a weak defense, unlike New Orleans who is an under team.
