Indiana Pacers fans in attendance at Bakers Life field house witnessed a devastating knee injury to All-Star guard Victor Oladipo (19.2) points per game. With 4:05 minutes before halftime the Pacers promising season turned sour as Oladipo as usual made a hustle play to defend a Raptors fast break basket. In the aftermatch trainers were seen covering his knee. The Pacers gave Cleveland fits in the 2017-18 first round and with that experience they considered were d a contender for the Eastern Conference. It’s a reminder there’s no certainty in life, with Oladip in the lineup the Pacers win total went from 52 to 51′ according to Las Vegas Bookmakers.

In recent NBA history, TNT announcer Charles Barkley suffered the same injury but it happened the same season he was set to retire. Tony Parker bounced back and is now playing at an elite level in Charlotte.

It also brought back images of another Superstar who dawned a Pacers uniform, Paul George suffered a gruesome leg injury in Las Vegas during an offseason NBA sponsored event. George recovered but the Pacers who were contending with Miami for Eastern Conference supremacy in the LeBron James era in South Florida.

Center Myles Turner is now the main focal point of the franchise and more than that who knows what general manager Chad Buchanan plans are moving forward. Although Oladipo has an excellent offseason workout and conditioning schedule, the question will always remain will he still be the same player?

The Pacers went 0-6 with Oladipo out of the lineup in 2017-18, and 7-4 without their best player as he recovered from a sore right knee during November and December of 2018. In an ironic twist, Indiana acquired Oladipo from Oklahoma City who then got George in return. Drafted by Orlando the former Indiana University product had turned his entire career around in the same state he played College Basketball with Cody Zeller.

This Sports handicapper is rooting for a healthy recovery for one of the most engaging stars in the National Basketball Association. It’s an emotional situation that can fracture the confidence of a young basketball team.

However, McMillan will rally the troops and emphasize staying in the moment with maximum effort on each possession moving forward. Former NBA star Tracy McGrady mentioned on ESPN that he wouldn’t be ready for the 2020 season and the Pacers management will have to make some decisions. Are they going to keep the current roster intact or acquire draft picks for some of their core players?

One thing is for sure Myles Turner isn’t going anywhere. It didn’t take long for the news of the devastating injury to circulate NBA Arena’s reminding everyone who makes claims about professional athletes; they also face career-defining moments. Oladipo is set to make $21 million this season and will get paid but who knows if he’ll be able to meet expectations on the basketball court.

  • UNDER bettors have made a profit the 76ers last four vs. — teams with an SU winning record.
  • The 76ers are 1-4 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five vs. Eastern Conference foes.
  • The OVER is 4-0 Philadelphia last four following an SU victory of more than 10 points.
  • Philadelphia is 2-5 ATS their seven in Indianapolis.

The (29-14) SU, (23-20) ATS Indiana Pacers have won three of four after a 131-97 victory over Phoenix as 10′ point home FAVORITES ATS.

  • The Pacers are 5-1 ATS their last six following a POINT SPREAD cover.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the last four between the teams.

Thursday’s game is 7:05 PM EST at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The TNT Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Indiana as 3 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 225′ points for Thursday’s contest.

 

After a two-point home loss to Atlanta as double-digit home FAVORITES ATS the Philadelphia 76ers have been victorious their last two. The 76ers are fourth in the NBA scoring an average of (115.4) points per contest led by Joel Embiid (27.0) ppg. The former Kansas Jayhawks standout has a unique skill set for a seven footer and can dominate any opponent in the league.

Head Coach Brett Brown is aware that his teams will be playing a stretch of 12 games against opponents with winning records. They seem to be up for the challenge after knocking down a franchise record 21 three-point shot in the win over Minnesota. However, tonight they’ll face a Pacers team that allows (103.0) points per game which is second in the Association.

The 76ers could have the most talented collection of young players in the league that includes Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz who’s rehabilitating a shoulder injury. Philadelphia will return to the City of Brotherly Love for a 3-game homestand against Southwest division opponents Oklahoma City, Houston along with San Antonio is that order.

World Champion NBA Handicappers at Charliessports believes Philadelphia should be able to dictate their terms tonight but must play an aggressive style; the mental toughness of Jimmy Butler will have his teammates up for the task.

Bovada.Lv list the Philadelphia 76ers win total at 53′ games for 2018-19.

 

Indiana Pacers head coach Nate McMillan has been instrumental in the growth of All-Star guard Victor Oladipo (19.5) points per game. The Pacers are 11-9 ATS at home this season, and they’ll have to play at an elite level against a team many have as FAVORITES to contend for the 2019 Eastern Conference title.

On the other hand, Indiana could be a player away from contending. Milwaukee, Toronto, Boston along with tonight’s opponent are a notch above Indiana, but they’re blocking out the chatter. Indiana has won 16 of their last twenty games and 9 of eleven to be in this position. With Oladipo getting most of the headlines Center Myles Turner (2.6) shot blocks per contest is quietly turning into an elite post player in the league.

The (48.3%) Indiana shoot from the field is second league-wide while the (37.3%) from beyond the arc is 5th in the league. It seems Indiana has that one quality that wins championships which is defense and the ability to shoot a high percentage from the field. The X-Factor for Indiana could be Power Forward Domantas Sabonis (9.7) rebounds per game isn’t as talented as Embiid but will fight for every possession and missed basket.

This Sports Handicapper believes Indiana will fall short tonight against a talented 76ers team.

Indiana Pacers@ Boston Celtics NBA Betting Betting Preview for Wednesday. January 9, 2019.

The (26-13) SU, (21-18) ATS Indiana Pacers were on a six-game winning streak until a 121-105 loss to Toronto as 1′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS. Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis scored 16 points apiece in defeat.

Every time the Pacers would come within two points Toronto would answer with a run of their own. The Pacers will play back to back games as they’re in Cleveland Tuesday, January 8th.

  • OVER bettors has cashed in the Pacers five overall.
  • The Pacers are 4-0 ATS the last four between the teams.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 Indiana last five after playing back to back contests.
  • Indiana is 2-5 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last seven overall.

The (24-15) SU, (21-18) ATS Boston Celtics are on a three-game win streak after Monday’s 116-95 victory over Brooklyn as 10′ point home FAVORITES ATS. Boston will hit the road beginning in Miami on Thursday the 9th of January and ending in Brooklyn.

Counting Wednesday’s contest, they’ll play three games in four days which is a trend in which bettors like to follow; going against a team in the last game when they’ve played 3 of 4.

  • UNDER bettors have made a profit in 20 of the last 28 between the teams in Boston.
  • Boston is 4-1 AGAINST THE SPREAD their last five at home.
  • The OVER is 4-1 the Celtics last five vs. Teams with a winning SU road record.
  • Boston is 9-2 ATS their last eleven vs. Eastern Conference, opponents.

Wednesday’s game is 7:05 PM EST at TD Garden in Portland, Oregon. The Local Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Boston as 6′ point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 213 points for Wednesday’s contest.

It’s clear how valuable Myles Turner is the Indiana Pacers after being held out in Toronto with a shoulder injury; his current status is day to day. However, Toronto had their with Kawhi Leonard out of the lineup. As a result, the Pacers dropped their 11th consecutive SU in the province of Ontario.

Head Coach Nate McMillan is also concerned about the status of point guards Darren Collison and Corey Joseph who have minor injuries. The Pacers are two games out of the top seen in the Eastern Conference which is why an impressive showing in Toronto would’ve been good for their confidence.

Remember the Pacers had Cleveland on the ropes in the first round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs but they’ll get a chance at another top tier team Wednesday in Beantown.

The Pacers 22nd ranked scores (107.7) points per game on (48.1%) shooting from the field, 2nd in the NBA and in back to back situations the Pacers score (107.5). 2018 All-Star Victor Oladipo is the team’s leading scorer with (20.1) points per game.

Indiana allows opponents (101.9) ppg which is number-one in the NBA. They’re shooting (36.9%) from beyond the three-point line, and they’ll need to make some against a Boston defense that’s held their last two opponents to under 100 points.

This one will come down to the Pacers having any energy in the tank after three games in four nights all on the road.

Bovada.Lv list the Indiana Pacers win total at 47′ games for 2018-19.

 

It’s January in the Northeast which means Boston area fans tr engaged in Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are in contention for another Super Bowl total.

Monday Night against the Brooklyn eight Boston players scored in double figures, the most since 2015. The Nets were playing the last of three games in four nights. The same scenario will exist Wednesday Night when the Pacers come to town with a 10-9-1 ATS road record.

However, the latest Celtics rumors involving New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis are swirling around the NBA. Forward Jayson Tatum (16.1) ppg seems to have the most value.

General manager Danny Ainge hasn’t mentioned anything to local media about the issue, but it wouldn’t surprise anyone. Tatum reportedly told Celtics radio announcer Cedric Maxwell “I’d trade me too for Anthony Davis.” The Celtics would become instant favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in 2019 and years to come.

Back to Wednesday’s game which could be a fantastic matchup for ATS bettors. The Celtics rank third league-wide shooting the three ball, making (13.4) per contest. The Celtics would like nothing better to begin a road trip undefeated, but it won’t be an easy task against a Pacers team that’ll accept the challenge after a subpar performance in Toronto.

This Sports Handicapper expect the rumors to distract Celtics players; how could it not but Brad Stevens will keep them in focus.

The (20-12) SU, (17-5) ATS Indiana Pacers look to break a two-game skid in the Big Apples largest borough Friday. Indiana lost to Toronto 99-96 as 4′ point road UNDERDOGS ATS.

Indiana is two games behind first-place Milwaukee in the Central division. It’ll also be the third game in four night’s for the leagues top-rated scoring defense; they allow opponents (100.8) ppg.

  • UNDER bettors have made a profit the Pacers last ten overall.
  • The UNDER is 6-0 Indiana last six on the road.
  • The Pacers are 13-5 ATS their last eighteen in Brooklyn.
  • Indiana is 4-1 ATS their last five following a POINT SPREAD cover.

The (15-18) SU, (18-15) ATS Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago as 2 point road FAVORITES ATS on December 19th for their seventh consecutive victory.

Brooklyn got swept by Indiana last season and had lost their previous eight SU vs. The Pacers. The Nets are the ninth seed and fourth in the Atlantic division, nine games behind first-place Toronto.

  • Brooklyn is 5-0 ATS their last five at home.
  • The Nets are 1-7 ATS the last eight between the teams.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 the last four between the teams in Brooklyn.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 2 of Brooklyn last three at home.

Wednesday’s game is 7:30 PM EST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The current Betting Line has Indiana as a 2′ point road FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 211′ points for Friday’s contest.

Indiana Pacers head coach Nat McMillan has plenty of offensive weapons at his disposal. However, after losing a 17 point lead in Toronto, he’ll be emphasizing more efficiency at the free throw line and ball control as they missed crucial foul shots. The Pacers have the leagues 25 ranked scoring offense at (105.9) points per contest while shooting (47.3%) from the field which ranks 8th in the NBA.

Guard Victor Oladipo leads the Pacers in scoring with (20.3) ppg while point guard Darren Collison dishes out a team-best (5.7) assists per game. Power Forward Domantas Sabonis grabs (9.9) rebounds per game with Myles Turner, Oladipo and Thaddeus Young also contributing. The Pacers understand they can compete with the best team in the Eastern Conference.

After their 2018 first-round loss to eventual Conference Champions Cleveland Cavaliers the Pacers believe they’re the team to beat. Brooklyn has been playing with confidence the past week and a half which will be good for the Pacers.

A key to an Indiana win is to keep the game at a slow pace also Turner will get a chance to face off Brooklyn big man Jarrett Allen who’s another University of Texas alumni; Allen is getting a lot of positive attention.

Bovada.Lv list the Indiana Pacers win total at 47′ games for 2018-19.

The Brooklyn Nets won a slow-paced game Wednesday in Chicago, but the Bulls aren’t the quality of Indiana. Both teams shoot well from beyond the three-point stripe, Brooklyn (35.7%), 10th in the league while Indiana ranks 5th at (37.1%).

Spencer Dinwiddie was signed to a contract extension and is showing the fans why with scoring production during the winning streak. The Nets average (110.6) points per game which are 16th in the NBA while the (111.2) they give up to opponents is tied for 18th with Minnesota.

Indiana wants to make Brooklyn a jump shooting team, and with the Nets playing three games in four nights they must give effort on each possession at both ends of the court.

With Caris LeVert out with an injury Dinwiddie (17.5) ppg and D’Angelo Russell (18.0) are proving they’re capable of taking up the slack. Russell also dishes out a team-best (6.2) assists per contest on a team that ranks 6th in the league averaging (22.4) apg.

Head Coach Kenny Atkinson deserves credit for keeping the team believing after LeVert went on the shelf.

Joe Harris (13.3) points per game are also stepping up, and his stock is rising; the former Virginia Cavaliers standout can also play tight defense.

Brooklyn knows they’ll be playing a Pacers team that’s hungry for a win and they much match their intensity.

The (4-3) SU/ATS Indiana Pacers lost their third game of 2018 on the last Monday in October 103-93 as a 4-point home FAVORITE ATS.

Indiana got outscored in the first quarter before going into halftime with a four-point lead. It was all Portland in the second half as the Pacers took ill advised shots something head coach Nate McMillan will correct. Leading scorer Victor Oladipo scored a team-high twenty-one points in the loss going two for six behind the three-point line.

  • Indiana is 0-4 ATS their last four in New York and zero for their last four to the POINT SPREAD on Wednesday’s.
  • UNDER bettors have profited in seven of the last 8 Pacers games on Wednesday’s.
  • The OVER is 4-1 Indiana last five on the road.
  • The Pacers have gone OVER the total in two of their last three in 2018.

The (2-5) SU, 4-2-1 ATS New York Knicks will be playing their third consecutive home game Wednesday. New York took care of Brooklyn SU 115-96 in their last game as one point home FAVORITES ATS after losing 128-100 SU to Golden State as a 12-point home UNDERDOG AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD on October 26th.

The Knicks broke a five-game SU losing streak Monday night. Tim Hardaway jr continues his impressive start to the season scoring the basketball averaging (24.4) ppg. They’ll need more Wednesday against a hungry Pacers team.

  • The Knicks are 2-9 ATS their last eleven on Wednesday’s.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in six of the last seven times, the teams have played in New York.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 the Knicks last five after scoring more than 100 points their previous game.
  • New York is 5-1-1 ATS their last seven after scoring more than 100 points the game before.

Wednesday’s game is at 8:00 PM EST at World Famous Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. Local Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Opening Betting Line has Indiana as a five and a half point road UNDERDOG ATS. The TOTAL is 212 points for Wednesday’s contest.

The Indiana Pacers are all in this season after last years competitive series against the Eastern Conference champions Cleveland Cavaliers. Indiana is a young team who plays terrific basketball at both ends of the floor. Indiana is second in the NBA with a (50.2%) field goal percentage as a team; only World Champions Golden State is better. The (102.9) ppg they allow opponents are third in the NBA and the (43.1%) they shoot from beyond the three-point line leads the league. The coaching staff isn’t too concerned about their lack of rebounding the first month; they haven’t outrebounded their opposition since opening night. The two teams have plenty of history, and you can bet Knicks super fan Spike Lee will be in attendance.

Shooting guard Victor Oladipo scores a team-best (21.7) ppg while power forward Domantas Sabonis grabs (9.7) rebounds per game. Thaddeus Young will begin to assert himself on the boards to help out. Center Myles Turner is a budding star with (2.1) shot blocks per game while also scoring in double-figure per contest. Point Guard Darren Collison runs the backcourt like a seasoned veteran and will have the Pacers ready to distribute the ball with consistency Wednesday.

Indiana must come out and play their style of Basketball to get the cover as the Knicks will give them good looks at the basket.

Bovada.Lv, list the Indiana Pacers at +215 to win the 2018-19 NBA Eastern Conference Central Crown.

The first year Knicks head coach David Fizdale won’t have the services of their best player Kristaps Porzingis (left knee) until February of 2019. The Knicks average (106.7) ppg which ranks 23rd in the NBA. Fizdale has them playing efficiently on defense as they are giving up (110.7) ppg, 11th in the league a -4 point differential.

Fizdale brings a culture of playing tight defense to the organization, and they must take advantage of his services, but they also must do a better job rebounding. Center Enes Kanter leads the team with (11.7) rpg and is 8th in the NBA, but Noah Vonleh (0.7) shot blocks per contest must also help.

New York is shooting (43.1%) from the field which is 22nd league-wide and (34.8%) from beyond the three-point line. They allow opponents an average of (53.0) point per half which should improve once they get used to the Fizdale system. Fans in the big apple are looking for the organization to bring in a star, with Porzingis history of injuries it shouldn’t be long before they make a trade for a Superstar. For now, they must buy into playing tight defense.

The Knicks can’t allow Indiana to get open three-point shots.

Bovada.Lv, list the New York Knicks at +10,000 to win the 2018-19 NBA Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.
