Pelicans vs Pacers Over/Under Pick: Under 239

NBA betting lines have the number high at 239, which is too high for our liking.

The Pacers can score with the best of them, but they aren’t always the most consistent team on the offensive end.

New Orleans has scored totals of 96, 95 and 106 points in recent games, so its offense isn’t firing on all cylinders.

Include the under in your NBA picks for Wednesday’s headliner.


Pelicans vs Pacers ATS Pick: Pacers -6½

We were disappointed with the Pacers 130-122 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Monday, but a rebound is expected.

They don’t often lose consecutive home games, especially with a 16-13-2 ATS home record, so we’re happy to back them.

The Pelicans have been going through their own struggles, including a scuffle against the Heat, which resulted in fines.

The sportsbook has a fair -6½ line for the Pacers, and we expect them to get back to their best. They looked much better last week when beating the likes of the Mavericks and Pistons, so that form bodes well.


Pelicans vs Pacers Player Prop Pick: Miles Turner Double-Double

We have been impressed with the play from Miles Turner for the Pacers, so we’re picking him to record a double-double.

The center averages 7.1 rebounds per game, so he’ll need to lift his average, but the Pelicans could miss a lot of shots.

He’s also a better offensive rebounder than his statistics give him credit for, we’re locking in the value NBA odds for Turner to show up on the stat sheet.

The Pacers are worthy favorites based on their 19-12 home record, so they are not false favorites against the Pelicans.
