INDIANA -2 -110 over Philadelphia
7:05 PM EST. The 76ers are trying to find their footing without leading scorer and rebounder Joel Embiid and while they are 1-1 without their big man, this trip to Indianapolis looks like a tough spot to get right after losing to Dallas on Saturday night. Al Horford has taken most of the minutes at the five spot the last two games, but he struggled with a 6-for-16 night shooting against Dallas. Point guard Ben Simmons, who has also taken a turn at center, was shut out in the second half of that game, which is a sure sign that Philly may have hit a wall.
The Pacers have injuries of their own and played without Domantas Sabonis in their 116-105 win over the Bulls on Friday night. That was just Indy's third win in its last eight games, which has them undervalued despite posting a 24-15 record. Sabonis is questionable for tonight's contest, but his status matters not, as the Pacers have capable replacements in center Myles Turner and JaKarr Sampson, who both stepped up against the Bulls. Turner put up a season high 27 points and 14 boards. Indy is being undersold in its current state and we plan to take advantage.
