The Indiana Pacers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 115 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 115.1 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Malcolm Brogdon is averaging 21.2 points and 5.3 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 20.2 points and 6.2 assists.

The Kings are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Pacers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and 5-21 ATS in their last 26 home games. The under is 4-1 in Kings last 5 overall. The over is 5-0 in Pacers last 5 overall. The Kings are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Indiana.

The Sacramento Kings are on the end of a back to back, but they’re starting to get their act together and need to keep winning to have any chance of getting into the play-in game. The Indiana Pacers are the better team here on paper, but they’ve been very inconsistent and they actually lose at home by an average of 2.9 points at home. The Pacers are also 8-22 against the spread at home. This line is probably right, but I’m still taking the free buckets with the Kings.
