Play the Pacers plus the points tonight when Indiana heads west to meet the Artest-less Sacramento Kings.
Sacramento is going to be without Ron Artest for awhile after his arrest for domestic violence.
Indiana is 6-2 against the spread their last 8 Tuesday games, while Sacramento is 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 home games. Indiana has been in a bit of a funk, but without Artest, this is the perfect opportunity to get back on track.
The Pacers are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games after scoring less than 75 points in their previous game. Kings are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games as a favorite of ½-4½, and are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games as a home favorite of ½-4½.
The underdog is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings. Artest is averaging 19 points/game and 7 rebounds/game. The Kings don't have anyone to make up for that kind of production. Take the points as the Pacers get back on track.
