BookMaker has the Indiana Pacers listed as 3-point favorites at home against the Chicago Bulls on Monday evening. Chicago has won six of the last ten while Indiana has won the previous three matchups in a row. Both teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Pacers are 3-0 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Chicago Bulls are 0-3 ATS overall and 0-1 ATS on the road this season while the Indiana Pacers are 2-0 ATS overall, 1-0 ATS at home, and 2-0 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Indiana dominated this series last year winning three of the four meetings including the last three games in a row. The Pacers also covered the spread in three of the four games last season and are 2-0 ATS overall this season while the Bulls have yet to cover the spread in any of their three games to start the year which is why I am laying the points with the Indiana Pacers at home when they host the Chicago Bulls on Monday evening.
