TOP RATED 10* NBA BOOKIE BREAKER
Chicago vs. Indiana,
03/05/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 96 - 105
Point Spread: -7½/-108 Indiana
The Chicago Bulls have played slightly better lately than their 18-46 record would indicate in winning five of their last seven games. They have however still struggled against tough opposition and are 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
Here the Bulls will face an Indiana Pacers team that sits 3rd in the East with 41-23 record, but will be desperate to get back on track after dropping three of their last four games.
The Pacers took a 117-112 loss to the Orlando Magic last time out and Pacers coach Nate McMillan was not pleased with his players' mentality. "You can talk about a call, but after you talk about that call, you've got to get back to calm," McMillan said to the Indianapolis Star. "The officiating was a distraction. There's been a couple games since this (All-Star) break where we are looking at the officiating. We kind of get drunk on emotions out there. Everything is rushing. You're not clear about what you need to do."
The Pacers are 7-0 ATS in their last seven home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400 and 22-9 ATS in their last 31 games following a straight up loss. I think McMillan will have his team ready to go for this one.
10* play on Indiana Pacers.
