NBA Handicapper Free Play: Indiana Pacers at Los Angeles Lakers

Indiana -1 at LA Lakers O/U 202
Recommendation: Over


Over the course of the season, the injury situation for the Indiana Pacers has gradually changed and in recent weeks has gotten them to near 100% except of course for Paul George who’s out for the season. However, just when Indiana began to get accustomed to playing together again, starting PG George Hill went down with a groin injury that will keep him out until Friday. Simultaneously, backup CJ Watson went down with a foot injury and is likely out of the lineup tonight. Their absences once again leave reserve Donald Sloan in charge of the point and that may seem like a significant negative for Indiana but perhaps it’s not when it comes to this contest. These teams played back on December 15 and the Pacers had almost the same nine-man rotation as they’ll have tonight. Difference in that one was Watson started and SF Chris Copeland was the 10th man, tonight he’ll get true bench minutes and Sloan who played 25 minutes in the earlier meeting will play a few extra. Bottom line is Indiana scored 110 points against LA in that game and there’s no reason to think they Read more

Indiana at Miami -7 O/U 182.5

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Previewing the Western and Eastern Conference Finals

Only four teams remain standing in the NBA Playoffs; one of whom will bring home the title less than a month from now.  For all the drama of the first two rounds, it’s an all-chalk Final Four, with the top two seeds from each conference battling for supremacy.

With both Conference Finals getting underway on Sunday and Monday, I’ll take a closer look at the two series.  The goal, as always, is to unearth hidden nuggets pointing towards future pointspread success while assessing pace and totals as well.

Predicting series success generally correlates strongly with predicting pointspread success when it comes to the NBA Playoffs.  But not as much as last year!  In 2013, the Final Four teams combined to go 31-11 (74%) against the spread in the first two rounds of postseason; each of the four teams cashing at a 67% clip or better.  The ‘surprise’ team of the four, Memphis, went 10-1 ATS through the first two rounds before covering only once while getting swept by San Antonio.

The ATS success of the Final Four teams in 2014 pales in comparison to 2013.  Between them, the NBA’s Final Four have turned a Read more

NBA Playoff Handicapping: Indiana Pacers try to fix offense on the fly

Atlanta at Indiana -7.5 O/U 187

Never a shortage of issues with the Indiana Pacers these days. Here we have the simple act of sharing – something the team addressed and obviously didn’t solve three weeks ago.


"I think the offensive change is simple: Share the ball more," Vogel said. "We gotta be effective and go inside more, and we gotta be effective when we go inside."

"We need to pound the ball a little more, (we've been) hesitant on our passes," Hill said. "We feed off our two bigs. Roy and David (West) are some of the best bigs in the league. The

There were eight opening round NBA Playoff Series that started this past weekend.  The lower seeded road teams – all underdogs in Game 1 – went 6-2 ATS, including five outright upset winners.  There were four games that flew Over the total, three that stayed Under and one (Miami-Charlotte) that finished right in between the opening and closing total.

This is just the start of a two month NBA Playoff marathon, and those Game 1’s may not be indicative of how these opening round series are likely to play out.  Here are some key note and quotes for each series following those Game 1’s.

Miami looked sluggish and lethargic for extended stretches of their opener against Charlotte, but took over the game with an 18-4 run in the fourth quarter when LeBron James was sitting on the bench.  Head coach Erik Spoelstra:  “We were flat to start. I think our guys were just anxious."  LeBron: “That group that was in once I took that break at the 10-minute mark in the fourth quarter, they just bumped the lead. Obviously, to have three Hall of Famers in the game when I'm out of the game, CB, D-Wade and Ray Read more
