5:35 p.m. PT at San Antonio

Pacers +7½ at Spurs (208)

Normally we don’t repeat a 2 For Tuesday play, but we feel that stronglt about this one. This is the ninth time San Antonio has played on back-to-back nights and its record in the second contest is just 2-7 against the number. Contrast that with the Pacers, whose 15-26 overall record doesn’t reflect how competitive they are. Indiana is 22-19 ATS, including a 6-1 run in the past seven outings.

San Antonio has a solid 27-13 overall record, but only 18-21 covering the line. Indiana comes off a 103-100 loss last night at New Orleans, a team on equal footing with the Spurs. The 208 projected total is the second highest in a San Antonio game this season. The Spurs beat Golden State 123-88 (211 combined) with a posted total of 213.

The Pacers have succeeded Golden State as the top over candidate in the NBA, having scored and allowed at least 100 points in 14 straight games. We recommended a Pacers / Over parlay in the GT edition. For sure, we like the side. PACERS.
