Indiana Looking to Begin Second Half with Win Over Atlanta

Indiana wants to return to form after All-Star break

Prior to the league All-Star break, the Pacers ran into a rough patch where they played to a 6-4 record. Their final game prior to the break was a loss to the Dallas Mavericks at home. It was just their third home loss of the season and has not sat well with the players during the brief time away from the schedule. Now, the Pacers will begin their second-half quest for the number-one seed in the playoffs.

Hawks try to hand Pacers just fourth home loss of season

Atlanta, despite sitting in the fifth spot in the standings, has not had that good of a season. They are just 25-26 overall and 9-17 on the road this year. The Hawks will need everything they have in their tank if they want to beat the Pacers on the road tonight. Atlanta was happy to see the All-Star break, especially since they went into it with a five-game losing streak. Snapping that streak tonight will be very difficult to do against the Pacers.

Coming out of the All-Star break, the Pacers are heavy favorites tonight against the Hawks at Sportsbook.ag. With a spread of -10 (-110), we find it difficult to bet against Indiana. It is an easy decision to lay the line with 15 percent of our bankroll on the Pacers Tuesday night as they grab another win at home, this time at the expense of the Hawks.
