NBA Odds: Sixers vs. Pacers
|Time | Channel||8 p.m. ET | BSIN|
The Indiana Pacers host the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday in one of the many late-in-the-year, regular-season games with huge postseason implications.
Indiana is currently a half game ahead of the Washington Wizards for the No. 9 seed in the Eastern Conference, with the Chicago Bulls desperately trying to catch either of them. The Bulls are three games behind the Pacers with four games left, including Tuesday’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.
The last time these teams faced off on March 1 the Sixers received a massive scoring effort from their bench. In that win, reserve guard Shake Milton scored a game-high 26 points on 9 of 14 shooting and went 5 for 5 from the charity stripe.
The timing of the public finding out about the reported dysfunction inside of the Pacers’ organization couldn’t have come at a worse moment. It’s hard to imagine any of the hard feelings that existed within the organization went away because of the report coming out.
In Indiana’s most recent game, it got an impressive bench performance of their own, with Kelan Martin pouring in 25 points in a nine-point victory over the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers.
With the Sixers still trying to make sure they secure the No. 1 seed and the Pacers trying to improve their playoff positioning, this game should be highly competitive. With that in mind, our latest PRO Report shows that sharp bettors are counting the Pacers to cover.
