Free Indiana Pacers vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Coming off a lethargic performance against the San Antonio Spurs, the Pacers are looking to get back to their winning ways. They had won three out of four straight up going into the Spurs contest, but that might be easier said than done consider on important trend in this series.
So far in the regular-season series, the home team has taken the contest straight up. Not to mention that the home team has also won each contest against the spread.
With Tyrese Haliburton’s status quesitonable, keep an eye there ahead of tip-off. But as of this writing, I’m taking the Bulls at home in a convincing win.
