It’s an important Eastern Conference match and NBA odds have the Hawks favored to win this one on the road.

Let’s check the latest NBA odds, stats, injury report and NBA lines for Hawks vs Pacers. We’ve plenty of NBA betting odds for you to consider.

Frustrating Hawks Needing Answers

The Hawks have been frustrating to follow and we think it’s an attitude thing. Trae Young said last season that they don’t care too much about the regular season, but that instills bad habits, like losing.

After beating the Clippers 112-108 on Sunday, it looked like their season could improve. However, losing 114-105 to the Bucks at home on Wednesday wasn’t ideal, and they’ll be doing well to get back to .500 after posting a 19-22 record.

Their against-the-spread record is even worse at 16-25, so the sportsbook is starting to catch on and not giving them much respect with a tiny -2½ line.

Having Clint Capela on the sidelines isn’t helping their cause. The defense knows that most of the offense comes from the wings, so defending the Hawks has become much easier.

Given their 8-13 road record, we expect the Hawks to struggle to show their best. They have failed to cover the spread in five of their last eight games, so bettors will have to take on trust.

Pacers Riding Home Winning Streak

The Pacers have won their last six home games, which goes a long way into establishing a good position in the Eastern Conference.

They got the better of Portland and Charlotte at home before losing to the Knicks on the road on Wednesday, but the 119-113 loss was a solid effort.

Defense has been key for the Pacers at home after allowing just 99 points against Portland in a 108-99 win last week.

“We were flying around,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “You have to double-team (Damian) Lillard and we trapped him in the backcourt a couple times. But the one constant is Myles around the basket. There are very few guys who have that presence around the rim and allow you to play with a smaller lineup. Myles was always there.”

NBA betting markets may be wrong about not favoring the Pacers, who are 25-17 ATS, one of the better records in the NBA.
