Pacers vs. Cavaliers Game Info

Indiana Pacers (15-18, 8-8 Away) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (14-21, 9-9 Home)
Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2021
Time: 7 p.m. EST
Venue: Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse — Cleveland, Ohio

These two teams have been heading in very different directions lately. The Pacers have been slumping. They have lost four straight games, scoring below their season average for points in three of the four games. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have won four straight games. However, they still do not have much offense in these wins. They have averaged 109.25 points during these four games, which in includes an overtime period. Their defense has been solid, though, averaging 101.5 points allowed over the same stretch.

Aside from the continued long-term absences on both of these teams, both squads enter tonight relatively healthy. Jeremy Lamb and Doug McDermott are both listed as questionable for the Pacers but expected to play. Taurean Prince continues to deal with an ankle injury for the Cavs, but he is listed as questionable tonight.

Pacers vs. Cavaliers NBA Picks | Total

Much like the point spread, those making NBA betting picks for the total in tonight’s Pacers – Cavaliers game should be a bit selective. Those interested in betting the total over will find the best value at FanDuel in the form of an over 218.5 (-108) ticket. On the contrary, those looking to bet the Pacers – Cavaliers total under should aim to do so at PointsBet, with a line of 218.5 (-105).

Pacers vs. Cavaliers Prediction

The Pacers may have lost four games in a row, but they have faced much tougher competition. Tonight, they face a team that they match up with very well. Cleveland will not have an answer for Domantas Sabonis. The Pacers backcourt should also have success in their matchups. While this spread is slightly larger than I would like, I do not have faith in the Cavs tonight. Also, Cleveland is 5-16 against the spread when they have one day of rest, which is the worst record in the NBA.

Prediction: Pacers -6.5
