In the wins closing out their last series’ the Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 94-91 and the Pacers beat the New York Knicks 106-99.

On the season the Pacers are 57-36 and they are 50-43 ATS and the Heat are 74-17 and are 52-39 ATS.

This season the Heat are 41-5 at home and the Pacers are 21-25 on the road.

The Pacers beat the Heat in their first 2 meetings this season and everyone was talking about how Indiana may give them problems in the playoffs. However, in the last game at home they rushed the Pacers by 14 points.

The Heat only have 1 loss in the post-season so far.

In their only loss in the playoffs the Heat had a long layoff and the Bulls stole game 1 in Miami in the last series. The Heat have had 6 days off and that is concern heading into this Game 1.

Pacers’ 7’2″ C Roy Hibbert came up big in the last round of the playoffs and he will have to play well in this game and series since the Heat lack a legit big man. [ad-6571516]

The Pacers’ defense ranked 2nd in the league in points allowed and they have to play solid D against Le Bron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. They must be physical with these guys and make them work for their hoops.

Paul George has been the team’s leader in the playoffs and he guarded Carmelo Anthony in the last round and now will match up against James.

In 3 of their 4 losses in the playoffs this season the Pacers have scored 75 points or fewer. They have a solid offense, but their key is their D.

In some betting trends for this Eastern Conference playoff match up the Pacers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games, and they have an Over record of 5-1 in their last 6 games facing a team with a winning record.

The Heat are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games overall, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, and they have an Over record of 5-2-1 in their last 8 home games.

The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 games between these 2 teams.

Jason’s Pick: The Pacers are a confident team and while they will not win this game like the Bulls did in the last round in Miami they will play well and cover the spread.
