NBA Betting Predictions: New Orleans Hornets vs Indiana Pacers
Tonight the Indiana Pacers look for their third consecutive victory as they host the New Orleans Hornets. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display Indiana as large -10 ½ point favorites over the Hornets.
The Indiana Pacers were on their longest losing skid this season (5 games) till they played consecutive games against two teams with a combined 14 wins. Their latest victory a nasty 108-73 win at home over the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. Indiana hit 50% of their shots from the floor shooting 39-78, 6 out of 16 three point attempts and totally dominated the Bobcats in rebounding 55-31.
Indiana put on an absolute scoring display at six total Pacer players scored double digit points. Roy Hibbert led the matchup with 18 points shooting an almost flawless 7-8 from the field and hit 4-6 of his free throws while grabbing a game high 14 rebounds. Forwards Danny Granger and David West both had 14 points with West also grabbing 8 rebounds and 3 assists. Dahntay Jones led the Indiana bench with 12 points shooting with great efficiency hitting 5-8 up close and hitting both his three point attempts.
The Charlotte Hornets had won three straight before dropping a game 101-93 on the road to the Oklahoma Thunder. Shooting a terrible 36.3% from the floor hitting only 33 out of 91 shots they were lucky they hit half their shots from behind the arc to even keep this score reasonable as they made 7 out of 14 three point attempts.
Guard Jarret Jack led the New Orleans Hornets with 18 points from the bench to go with his 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Greivis Vasquez had 15 points shooting 5-9 and hitting 2 out of 3 three point attempts. Center Chris Kaman had 12 points and tied Lance Thomas in leading the team with 8 rebounds.
NBA Betting Prediction: The Indiana Pacers have been playing good ball against weak competition, and the New Orleans Hornets are exactly that, weak competition. I believe the Indiana Pacers should have little troubles covering the large spread against the weak New Orleans Hornets.
