Yes, even 20 pts surprised me...BUT you have to figure 20 pts is only 7 possessions...Indiana should cover this. Indiana is one of the best teams in the league...and Philly one of the worst. On a 20 game losing use 1 pt for each game on the losing streak and you have your spread.

But in all seriousness, Indiana should be able to outplay Philly by 7 lousy possessions through a 48 minute game. They obviously TOYED with Detroit, until they dominated them in the 2nd half (That's how they set it up IMO)

So, 76ers are a sucker bet here. I'll be on Indiana fo sho

Indy hasn't beaten anyone by 20 that I know of, they aren't playing outstanding basketball...Philadelphia might be OK with losing this but by 20 - I doubt it! Good Luck Cappers!

Pacers don't blow anyone away ...this is the sixers but I don't have faith in giving 20 points to anyone , if you bet this you gotta take philly on these points

Pacers might not blow anyone away (They did post a 14 point win at home against the Clippers recently though which is impressive) however Philly gets blown away by all of their opponents. Granted Indiana only won the last game by 7 but I think it was because they just didn't care to play any harder. They knew they had the W no matter what.

As for Philly winning this one outright...Well it does pay a generous +2600 so I guess it's worth a small bet. If the game is rigged for Philly to win, then they will certainly win it. I guess it just depends on how much "Dumb money" is thrown out on Indy ML tonight.

19 points is alot of points to lay for any NBA game,but the 76ers
are so bad,it just wouldn't surprise me if Indy did cover this spread,
but the fact is,Indy haven't been play their best ball of late,and is just
best to pass on this game.

Wow felt like a fix...George and West can't shoot at home vs. the worst defense in the universe ? 

Indy mailed it in defensively effort wise too...look at all of those sixer offensive rebounds, kept letting them stay in the game.   Honestly too bad Indy didn't lose outright, they deserved it.
