The opposite is true with the Pacers and Hornets. Both are vying for position in the Eastern Conference standings and since the break, the Pacers’ have not been pacing very fast. This makes tonight’s game an excellent under play.

 Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets  

 

After being one of the worst defensive teams in the league in the first half, the Pacers might be finally figuring things out on that end. It’s taken some lineup changes, but with Glenn Robinson III starting to play better and C.J. Miles getting his licks in on defense, this team has some potential to top people tonight.

Then enter the Hornets, a team coming off a long road trip and a team that has been amazing at cashing the under when playing at home. Charlotte is 17-12 cashing the under when playing at home and their defensive efficiency when playing in Charlotte has been great this season.

The Hornets are holding their opponents to just 102.2 points per game when at home, which translates to a DRtg of 102.3 points allowed per 100 possessions. The Pacers have also been playing a slower pace since the All Star Break, as they rank 28th since February 15th with a pace of 95.7 possessions per 48 minutes.

Charlotte has cashed the under in their last four home games in a row, while the Pacers’ slower pace has led them to cash the under in seven games in a row. Before everyone catches on to the Pacers playing slower, add the under to your NBA Picks tonight.
