Hawks Visit Pacers for Game One of Eastern Playoff Series Tonight

Pacers put their conference-best record on the line

Indiana finished as the top seed in the Eastern Conference, holding off the Miami Heat for the final couple games of the season. Now, the Pacers want to turn their number-one seed and home-court advantage into an opening-game win and a series win in the first round. Indiana did not play as well in the second half as it did in the first half, but they were able to secure a two-game winning streak to end the season prior to this series.

Hawks look to steal a road game early in series

Atlanta would love to steal a game on the road early in this first-round series with the Pacers. They will need to win one of the first two road games if they want to have any shot of winning this series in an upset. Atlanta was not a good road team at all this year, winning just 14 games away from home. They finished the regular-season under .500, but still made the playoffs since the Eastern Conference is the weaker of the two.

In what is not a surprising line at all, the Pacers are 7.5-point home chalk over the Hawks at SportsBetting.ag on Saturday night in Indiana. Even though Indiana went through some rough patches in the second half of the season, they should have no trouble winning this contest. We will take Indy as we lay the line with 15 percent of our bankroll.
