The Indiana Pacers have made a habit of alternating wins and losses of late, and that trend favors their bettors ahead of Monday’s home tilt with the Utah Jazz. Sportsbooks opened the Jazz as 3-point chalk with a total of 192.5.
– Shark Bites
- The Jazz are 1-4 SU in their last five games on the road against the Pacers.
- The Pacers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games with no days off between games.
- The Jazz are 16-3 SU in their last 19 games as road favorites.
The Pacers, who have rotated wins and losses over their last 13 contests, will once again have to rely heavily on superstar Paul George. George is averaging 26.4 points a game this month while consistently doing his best to spearhead his team to wins. Secondary scoring has been a bigger issue, though, as the squad will need to get more out of the likes of Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis if they want to make a playoff run. Indy lost 116-91 to Toronto on Sunday.
Utah’s offense has been operating at a snail’s pace in March, as the Jazz are averaging only 84.5 points in the month while losing their last two games to Chicago and Cleveland. All-star swingman Gordon Hayward is shooting 9-for-30 in that span, but he’s averaging a career-high 21.8 points on the season.
Indiana has been a poor straight-up wager when playing in the second half of back-to-back sets this year, going 4-11 when in that spot.
