NBA Betting – Pacers aim to slow down streaking Jazz

by Dirty on July 17, 2013


March Madness betting players are very familiar with Utah’s Deron Williams, who led Illinois to the NCAA title game in 2005 before heading to the pros. Williams is putting on a show once again, and Indiana will try to avoid being the next Utah victim when the Jazz head to Conseco Fieldhouse on Tuesday night with an 11-game winning streak on the line.

Jazz vs Pacers odds – Tuesday, March 10, 7:00 PM ET

We’re about to see what kind of team Utah really is, as eight wins on their current streak have come at home, where the Jazz are a stellar 28-6. On the road however, it’s a different story as Utah is only 12-17, which could hurt them in the postseason. Williams has been on fire, putting up 19.6 points and 13.0 assists in his last five games, but he may need to be even better to carry the Jazz through this road trip. The Jazz are scoring almost five points a game less on the road, so look for Williams to seek his own shot more often.

The Pacers have been without All-star Danny Granger, yet somehow have gone 6-3 in that time and remain a half-game behind Chicago for the final spot in the East. Troy Murphy has been a monster over his last five games, posting 19.6 points and 13.8 boards. During this nine-game stretch, all of the Pacers’ games have been decided by an average of 5.1 points, and Indiana’s ability to win the closer games should put them in the playoffs. Indiana could be a sportsbook favorite to win this contest given their recent form, but the NBA lines for this game will be close.

The Jazz have won four of their last five against the Pacers, including a 120-113 win at home on January 12th. Mehmet Okur went off for 43 points in that contest, but those who bet sports shouldn’t expect another night like this. Instead, look for Williams to lead the way to another win, so make the Utah Jazz your NBA betting pick on Tuesday.
