Both teams head into this contest missing key players, but Orlando's injuries woes go much deeper than Indiana's. The Pacers have also been the hotter team lately, winning seven of their last nine games.

Pacers vs. Magic Prediction & Pick

Indiana is at home and has won three straight games coming in, all by at least eight points. With Maritz Wagner, Paolo Banchero and Wendell Carter Jr. all potentially out, Orlando's front line is going to be severely depleted. Expect the Pacers to dominate the boards and time of possession en route to a fourth straight win.

Prediction: Pacers: 118 | Magic: 105

Pacers vs. Magic Best Bet

As mentioned above, most of Orlando's frontcourt will be missing in this one. Bol Bol will be playing though, and he should have a chance to pick up a ton of extra rebounds with his 7-foot-2 frame. He's averaging 11.5 boards over his last four games, so bet on him to have another big night cleaning the glass.

Bet: Bol Bol 10+ Rebounds (-115)
