Why The Pacers Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Pacers are the best scoring team in the NBA, and they showed it in their first matchup with Dallas. They average 123.3 points per game, which is the most by almost two points. The Pacers also lead the NBA in field goal percentage, field goals made per game, and they are sixth in three-point percentage. Indiana wins game with their offensive play, and that is how they will have to win this one. If they can continue scoring at a high rate, they are going to cover this spread on the road.

33 of the Pacers’ 34 wins this season have come when they score at least 115 points. That is the number they have to shoot for. The Mavericks do allow 118.0 points per game, so the Pacers should be able to put up another big offensive game against them. If they can do that and get to 115 points, they will win.

Why The Mavericks Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Pacers magic number here is 115 points. When the Pacers score under 115 points, they have a brutal record of 1-16 record. Indiana does not win games when they do not score a high amount. The Mavericks need to lock it in on defense and find a way to keep the Pacers under 115 points, If they can do that, they will cover the spread.

Indiana allows the third-most points per game this season. They allow over 120 points per game, so the Mavericks should be able to play well offensively. Even without Doncic, the Mavericks still have Irving, which makes them a threat to put up some points. If Dallas can knock down their shots, they will win.

Final Pacers-Mavericks Prediction & Pick

I have a feeling this game is going to be high-scoring, so I am going to take the over. Because of the offensive nature of this game, I like the Pacers to at least keep the game close. I will take Indiana to cover.
