Predictions For Betting On Hawks Pacers – Pacers Look To Avoid Season Sweep Versus Hawks On Tuesday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/3/2013 5:48:15 PM

The Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers entered this season in familiar positions, with both teams considered worthy of a playoff spot but facing major question marks beyond that. With just one-half game separating these teams in the standings, the sports betting stakes will be even higher when the Hawks visit Indiana this Tuesday night, especially with the Brooklyn Nets also right there with them in the battle for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. That No. 4 spot will offer one of these teams the chance at home court advantage for at least the opening round of the playoffs, as both teams look to establish position down the stretch.

Neither team has been able to live up to expectations recently as the Hawks and Pacers had each split their previous 10 games heading in to this past weekend. Inconsistency has been something both teams have dealt with over that span and the season as a whole, although Atlanta has taken the first two meetings in this three-game season series.

The Hawks followed up an 89-86 win over Indiana at the beginning of the year with a 109-100 win at the end of December, and can clinch the season sweep with another strong effort on Tuesday. The last win was that much more impressive with Josh Smith out of the lineup with an injury, as Lou Williams and Al Horford each topped the 20-point mark while six different scorers reached double-digit point totals. In addition to 21 points, Williams also dished out a career-high 12 assists, and will look to set the tone again this time around against the Pacers.

Indiana wasn’t able to keep up with Atlanta in the last meeting despite a game-high 29 points from David West, who the Pacers seemed to allow certain looks to as long as they never lost control of the game. Roy Hibbert played just 21 minutes when he didn’t have a point in that last meeting, and will be a key at both ends of the floor in this one as he gets matched up against Horford. Indiana ranks No.1 in the NBA in rebounding this season thanks to strong play from Hibbert and Ian Mahinmi, which is one of many reasons that they rank second in the association in scoring defense.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

After losing the first two meetings in this season series, the Pacers will be hard pressed to bounce back and get one at home, particularly against a very strong Atlanta team. However, Indiana has been excellent at the Bankers Fieldhouse this season with one of the NBA’s best records on their own home court, so they should be able to bounce back and avoid the sweep against an online sportsbook opponent that they are battling with for position in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
