NBA Picks: Brooklyn Nets vs. Indiana Pacers

1 of 4

    The Indiana Pacers are 8-0 against the spread at home following a straight-up loss this year, which can't be ignored when making your NBA picks Monday night, as they prepare to host the Brooklyn Nets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    Sports bettors will find that the Pacers are eight-point home favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 183.5 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Eastern Conference matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.

Brooklyn Nets

2 of 4

    The Brooklyn Nets have hit the century mark offensively just once in their last 10 games, as they attempt to bounce back from a 111-86 blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs as 2.5-point home underdogs Sunday night.

    Sports bettors will find that the underdog is 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings in this series.

Indiana Pacers

3 of 4

    The Indiana Pacers had their five-game win streak snapped last time out, as they suffered a 100-98 overtime loss to the Toronto Raptors as seven-point home favorites last Friday.

    Sports bettors will find that the Pacers are 5-4 ATS as home favorites of 6.5 to nine points this season, with the UNDER going 5-4 in that situation.

Prediction

4 of 4

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Indiana Pacers as one of their NBA betting picks Monday night, as they've gone 12-2 against the spread in their last 14 games following a straight-up loss.
