For the life of me, I can't figure out what has happened to the Indiana Pacers. It was only until Feb/10 in which this team suffered consecutive losses . The are currently losers in 5 out of their last 6 and have failed to get the cover in 8 straight games. They aren't quite ready to be laying 11 points. 31 games into the season and the Pacers are laying their highest chalk to date. This isn't the time to be laying DDs against anyone. The Bobcats are a much different team with Augustin back. He's a legitimate playmaker .
Like the sixers as well, but let me play devils's advicate a little here with ur bobcats pick, I see some similarities with yesterdays portland game and this game.
Just to name a few, port(last night) and ind are both playing shitty as of late, both cant cover espcially portland at home before yesterday.
Both spreads were very unconftrable betting prior to the game, meaning are u really going to lay 5 on a team who hasnt been winning at home as of late and hasnt won against the team (the hawks) in 6 straight tries and now u have to lay 5?
Just like the pacers today, with ur explanation, u have to lay 11 for the pacers (now 10.5 in my book)? Its like the books are telling u to take the cats at this high number. I do understand both maggette and augustine is back BUT as a long time CLIPPER fan, I understand LOSING cultures within a team and the bobcats are just that. They LOSE and usually will lose big, I just dont think the addition of those 2 players are worth that much, it just makes that cats a 84ppg team to a 89ppg kinda team maybe getting into the 90s 3 times a month.
I just think this spot is great for the pacers to break the ats losing streak and bring back the cats to reallity after beating a really bad toronto team.
It just seems tough for me to pull the trigger on the bobcats who have been giving up over 100 on this road trip and the pacers can easily score over 100 at home, so as long as ind plays D and keeps the cats at their avg., the PACERS should cover imo BUT if the cats can score over their ppg avg, I do see a cover by the cats. and I guess the revenge factor MAY play a roll but who have the cats really gotten revenge on this season with only 4 wins?
The only team the cats got revenge on this year was the CAVS very very early in the season when the cavs won at home and lost on the road to the cats....
This is just my 2 cents and I hope u win this play as I do not have the balls to pull the trigger on the bobcats even with those points...
