The Indiana Pacers will be on the road to take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, January 24th.
The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from Smoothie King Center.
New Orleans started off as a 1 point favorite and that number has not changed so far. The total has gone from 214 to 214.5.
It has been a rough season for the Pacers so far. This season is definitely going to drag on for them.
They actually had a two game winning streak going, but that got snapped the other day. It never seems like they are able to rattle of a lot of wins in a row.
I am not saying that this team should be one of the better seeds in the East, but I do feel they should be better than what they are given the players they have. They have definitely underperformed this season.
All throughout the season, it never seems like they have not been able to get out of their own way. There have been multiple games in which they should have won, but were just unable to take care of business.
Indiana lost to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday by a score of 113-103. They were in the game for a bit, but the better team eventually did what they had to do to get the win.
For the most part, the defense did not look very good for these guys in their last game. I know that the Suns are a hard team to defend, but they did not give them much of a chance to get the win.
New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans continue to be a strange team this season. You never know what you are going to get from them on a game to game basis.
Right now, New Orleans has a record of 17-28, which puts them in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. Unless they get a whole lot better, they are not going to improve their seeding all that much.
One of the biggest issues with this team has been consistency. There are certain times where they show up and look good, but there are others where that is not the case at all.
They last played on Thursday, where they beat the New York Knicks by a score of 102-91. Even though their opponent has not been great this year, that was still a solid win for this club.
The offense was not exactly great for them in their last game, but the defense played quite well. If you hold a team to just over 90 points, you should be able to win the ball game.

- The Pelicans are 7-2 ATS in their 9 games at home.
Indiana Pacers vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Analysis:
So far, the Pacers are .500 on their road trip. They will look to get their 3rd win when everything is settled on Monday.
With their best scorer out of the game, other players will have to step up on the offense for the Indy. They have some players who can do so, but it is certainly not going to be an easy task for them.
This is definitely a game that New Orleans should be able to get, but you never know. Based on how they have looked so far, it would not shock me if they laid an egg.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans ATS
Given how many players will be missing for the Pacers in this game, I just do not trust them.
I am not saying that New Orleans will totally crush them, but I do feel they can do enough to get this cover.
