Pacers vs Clippers Prediction, Odds and NBA Picks Monday, March 25

This seems like a complicated game for NBA expert picks. At times, the Indiana Pacers’ defense makes them a hard team to back while the Los Angeles Clippers are slowly losing steam in the regular season, preparing for the playoffs.

In the Pacers’ last game, their defensive issues were on full display, losing on the road in the first of a back-to-back against the Los Angeles Lakers 150-145. On the positive side, they did score 145 points, but the defense was atrocious. The Clippers also had a poor defensive showing on Sunday, losing to a Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers 121-107.

With how both defenses performed in their last games, NBA second-half lines could be interesting to track for this matchup. Games are often decided in the second half, and if the Pacers or Clippers defenses struggle late in this matchup, each team could put up a lot of points in the final 24 minutes.

Pacers vs Clippers ATS Pick: Pacers +5½

The Clippers are currently the fourth seed in the Western Conference, and after the rocky start following the addition of James Harden to Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the team had figured things out. However, that was not the case after the All-Star break, officially affecting NBA betting lines.

 

Since the All-Star break, the Clippers have started to stumble with an 8-9 record while only covering three NBA spreads over the last 10 games. Their record against teams with winning records has not been good, which leads to the biggest reason for what the Pacers can cover in this game.

The Pacers have a winning record and are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, which would give them an automatic spot in the playoffs. Their offense has been the biggest reason for the team’s success, averaging the most points per game (123.1) and ranking second in offensive rating (120.4). That was put on full display against the Lakers, scoring 145 points in Sunday’s loss.

Another reason the Pacers are an excellent option to cover is that, since the All-Star break, the Clippers’ defense has been their most significant issue. They have the fifth-highest defensive rating since the break (117.4), which the Pacers will have no problem exploiting.

Here’s a look at some NBA Lines and NBA Game Odds to consider!

 

Pacers vs Clippers Over/Under Pick: Over 233

Even though the Pacers’ defense has been in the middle of the pack since the All-Star break, the loss to the Lakers reminded bettors of how many issues this team has on the defensive end. That is enough to change NBA picks, especially with the likely chance that the Pacers have a big offensive game to cover the spread against the Clippers.

Furthermore, while the Clippers’ defense has fallen off recently, the offense has yet to. Since the All-Star break, the Clippers still have the 11th-best offensive rating (116.2) and will face a team that just gave up 150 points on the same court last night.

 

 

Player Prop Pick: Tyrese Haliburton Over 18.5 points (-113)

In a game that the Pacers should be able to cover because of their offense, Tyrese Haliburton could have a big night. While he has not been a consistent scorer recently, this is a game where Haliburton could take over more as a scorer. He only had 12 points in the loss to the Lakers, but that should change against the Clippers.

Questions Of The Day

 

What do the Clippers need to get back on track?


The Clippers are running into the same issue they have near the end of every season recently, looking ahead to the playoffs. While this makes sense for a veteran team, it could lead to the Clippers starting the playoffs out of sync.

Do the Pacers have a chance to win straight up?


Given how quickly the Pacers can put up points and the Clippers’ record against teams with winning records since the All-Star break, the road team has a chance to win straight up.
