I know the Hornets are one of the hottest teams ATS in the NBA, but the Hornets will be playing a Pacer team right now that is also playing solid basketball, coming into the game winning 5 in a row.

Let's not forget that at the end of the day the Hornets have a 6-13 record at home. Their coming into this game with a big win over the defending champs, and are playing their 4th game in 5 days. Can you say major "let down spot".

All the statistics point towards the Pacers in this one, offensively and both defensively. Just wanted to throw in the fact that their is a motivational angle pointing towards the Pacers in this one as well. David West will be returning to New Orleans tonight after 8 seasons of playing with them. You sure as hell know he'll be bringing his A game tonight along with the rest of his teammates. Chris Kaman is going to have his hands full tonight inside the paint vs the Pacers front court. He will have to work extremely hard defensively inside the paint and I think that will effect him on the offensive end. He is the MAIN REASON why the Hornets have been playing much better as of late. To many factors point towards the Pacers in this one not to make it a play.

I respect that. If you don't mind me asking, why are you backing them?

i tailed two solid guys in Covers Contest both of them picked NO +5.5 tonight. And one of the guy went 2-11 ATS in his last 13, so prolly he is due to storm back?

Also,

Pacers are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games as a road favorite of 5.0-10.5.

Hornets are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5.

Well, no offense to you of course, everybody has his own style of handicapping games, but I'd usually stay away from somebodies plays if he's cold. But other then that, there is just way to many advantages pointing towards the Pacers "basketball wise". Ya the Hornets are hot ATS, I respect that, but they have gone 5-4 straight up in that span, only 1 game above .500. Pacers are a tough match for the Hornets in my personal opinion, and also bad teams coming off big wins, usually spells let down in their next game, especially on a back to back. I can be wrong of course, but I think the right play is the Pacers here.

Both cappers that i'm tailing went pretty cold in their last couple of days, but i think they're solid. And i don't chase hot streaky cappers, law of average will bring them down, i'll stick to those same few cappers in that Contest till the end of this regular season. 

i'm no good NBA regular season capper and i see you're a solid hoop player, might be you're right on this one.

i bet the indiana money line -240.  thought there was good value there.  i can see indiana going in and playing smash mouth basketball and winning by anywhere from 2 to 10.   i like that indiana is rested.  david west is coming back.  mostly, it's that indiana is rested and hungry.  but these two teams just played an overtime game less than two weeks ago.  so i'm going against my over-time rule, which is two teams go to overtime in the same regular season bet the dog in the next one.  hope indiana wins by 25!

New Orleans shot 13 for 24 from 16-23 feet (54%) and 9 for 21 from the 3PT line (43%).  This is one of the worst jump-shooting teams in the league. Indiana allowed the Hornets to shoot 53.2% from the field in that one, the most they’ve allowed any opponent this year. Do you see that repeating? I personally don't, that's why my money is on the Pacers. Best of luck.

GL prop. On the other side. One of us will cash out. Hoping kaman and ariza will have a good night at home after a big win over Dallas. Let's carry the momentum over at home.

Ya in order for the Hornets to be successful tonight, Kaman needs to deliver like he has been, BUT I personally think he's going to struggle tonight vs the Pacers front court.

David West will be returning to New Orleans tonight after 8 seasons of playing with them. You sure as hell know he'll be bringing his A game tonight along with the rest of his teammates.

Why would West be motivated?  Isn't he glad to be on a better team?
