Indiana Pacers 23-15 (19-17-2 ATS)
The Pacers could not stand the competition and again fell to the sixth line, where, in principle, they feel comfortable, since the closest pursuer of the Orlando is noticeably behind. Nate McMillan’s guys are betting on defense, because after the injury of Victor Oladipo, another tactic did not work. In the previous meeting, the Pacers lost to Miami with a crushing score (108-122), which clearly affected the players’ self-esteem, because the hosts hoped for a different result. Indiana will try to correct the situation in the match against Chicago, but do not forget that the Bulls have nothing to lose, as they are already losing to everyone in a row.
Chicago Bulls 13-25 (18-19-1 ATS)
Jim Boylen’s wards had a good opportunity to stay in the middle of the Eastern Conference standings, but as a result of this, the team began to lose points in almost every match. Bulls got into the game pit and can not get out of it. Recall that for five consecutive fights Chicago has been without victories and this is a big problem, however, due to unsuccessful performances of rivals, there is an opportunity to catch on the tenth line. The next meeting is very important for the Bulls and the mood will be appropriate.

Indiana Pacers vs Chicago Bulls Prediction
The hosts will gather their strength and impose the fight on the opponent, because Chicago has been losing to almost everyone recently, so there is only one way out – go all-in. Indiana acts competently, but now Nate Macmillan’s team is far from optimal form.
Last score prediction, Indiana could win and cover, 16-9.
Pick: INDIANA -3.5
