Pacers vs. Bulls Prediction & Pick

The Pacers have continued to struggle without starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton on the court. Indiana is averaging 111.3 points per game during its losing streak and its average scoring margin during that span checks in at -12.4. The Pacers are in desperate need of a bounce-back win at home.

The only problem is they run into a Bulls squad that is starting to find their stride as of late. Zach LaVine and Demar DeRozan combined for 46 points against the Hawks, while Nikola Vucevic logged 17 rebounds. Overall, Chicago ranks ninth in offensive efficiency when on the road this season.

Chicago is also 6-1 straight up in its last seven games against Indiana, so rock with the Bulls here.

Final Score Prediction: Pacers: 118 | Bulls: 123

Pacers vs. Bulls Best Bet

The Pacers may not be able to earn a bounce-back win, but they can get their offensive groove back on Tuesday. After all, the Bulls allow 116.3 points per away game (T-No. 18 in NBA). Indiana also plays at the third-fastest pace in the NBA, which makes the over intriguing for each one of its showdowns.

Keep in mind both of these teams rank among the top 15 teams in three-point shooting percentage and rank outside the top 20 teams in three-point shooting defense. Shots from long range are going to be flying in this game. The total has hit the over in each of Indiana's last six games on a Tuesday.

Bet: Over 234.5 Points (-110)
