Indiana at Philadelphia -7 O/U 185 
Recommendation: Under

Both the 76ers and the Pacers have been real moneymakers for their supporters through the first two weeks of the season, combining for an 11-4 mark both SU and ATS.  The key to the success for both squads?  Stellar defense on nearly every possession.  Doug Collins’ 76ers lead the league into two key defensive statistical categories; holding foes to 39.5% shooting and under 86 points per game.  Forward Elton Brand: ‘It’s all about playing defense. We know we can score. It’s all about how we react and how we respond on defense.”  Coming off their best defensive showing in the 15 year history of the Wells Fargo Center – holding Toronto to 62 points in a blowout win on Saturday – look for continued defensive intensity tonight. Meanwhile, Indiana could be without their two leading scorers tonight.  Center Roy Hibbert (ankle) and forward Danny Granger (illness) are both listed as questionable for this ballgame.  The Pacers, too, rank among the league’s elite defensive squads, holding foes to 89 points per game; No. 3 in the NBA in both points allowed and shooting percentage allowed.  Granger, after holding Charlotte to 72 points on 32.6% shooting on Saturday: “We grinded them out, we put our defense out there and played to the best of our ability.”  Don’t expect many easy buckets in this matchup! Take the Under.
