Pacers vs Lakers Odds and Spreads

  • Los Angeles is 1-7 ATS in its last eight games following a straight-up win.
  • The under is 7-0 in the Pacers’ last seven Sunday games.

Over/Under Pick: Over 241 (-110)

The Pacers are the highest-scoring team in the NBA this season, averaging 122.8 points per game. Indiana is paced by All-Star guard Tyrese Haliburton (20.5 points, league-best 11.2 assists), who loves to push the pace as well as bomb away from the outside. The Lakers often have trouble defending dynamic scoring guards, so Haliburton could have a big game in this one.

Los Angeles can light up the scoreboard as well, scoring 120 or more points in three of its last five contests. The Lakers should be able to keep up in this one, making the over one of the NBA picks you should be making for this game.

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


ATS Pick: Pacers +3½ (-110)

These teams played in the title game of the NBA’s inaugural in-season tournament, with the Lakers rolling to a 14-point win in Las Vegas. But Indiana is playing better, having won five straight on the road and having picked up forward Pascal Siakam (20.9 points, 7.8 rebounds with Indiana) since that meeting.

Los Angeles has been inconsistent and is about to embark on a six-game Eastern road trip, so it needs this victory before departing on that sojourn. While the Lakers may be able to pull this one out, the NBA betting lines Las Vegas has for this game are giving too much to the Pacers to not make your bet on the visitors.



Prop Pick: LeBron James Over 43½ Pts+Rbs+Ast (-106)

As you’re doing your basketball betting online, you need to look at LeBron James and the way he’s been playing of late. Over his last nine games, James has exceeded his season averages, going for 26.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per contest. In a likely uptempo game, James is going to find another gear and put up some big numbers as he tries to will the Lakers to the win.
