Pacers vs. Bulls Prediction & Pick

The Bulls are expected to be without DeMar DeRozan tonight after he left Monday's game early with a thigh strain. It's a big blow considering the veteran baller leads the team in points (25.4) and assists (5.1) per game. More pressure will be put on Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic to guide the offense.

Indiana enters this one fully healthy and will have the crowd on its side. The Pacers average a reliable 116.7 points (No. 12 in NBA) and force 15.9 turnovers (No. 5 in NBA) per home game this season. That kind of balance should come in handy against a Bulls team that has posted a 10-19 road record.

Look for Tyrese Haliburton's ability to find the open man make all the difference in a win tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Pacers: 116 | Bulls: 111

Pacers vs. Bulls Best Bet

There's a lot to like about the under in this game. The Bulls are averaging a discouraging 95.0 points over their last three games, while the Pacers are averaging 111.3 points during that same span. Not only that, but both of these teams rank among the bottom 10 teams in offensive efficiency as well.

The total has hit the under in each of Chicago's last five games overall as well as in eight of its last nine away games. The under has also cashed in six of Indiana's last eight games overall and in six of its last seven games against Chicago. There's not enough scorers in this game to expect a shootout.

Bet: Under 231.5 Points (-110)
