NBA Picks Against the Spread: Pacers -4 Says Sports Handicapper

The free pick winner for Tuesday is on the Indiana Pacers, says Matt Rivers of

Sometimes you don’t have to get too complicated when it comes to handicapping a game and that is my belief here between Cleveland and Indiana. The Pacers are the better team here and are at home. Put those two important factors together and I just see Danny Granger and the Pacers as too cheap in this spot.

Indiana will be on a back-to-back which is never easy but they are also flying pretty high right now after embarrassing Lebron, D-Wade and Bosh down in South Beach last night. Wade shot 1-for-13 and the Pacer bench outscored the Heat’s 40-4. The next night doesn’t always translate into success but these guys have now won three of five on the court and covered four of five. Jim O’Brien has a blossoming big man in Roy Hibbert helping out Granger and a bunch of other solid enough players who just form a much better team than what the Cavaliers have to offer these days in the post Lebron era.

Cleveland is just a team that is without a doubt on its way down after losing their former King. The start to the season hasn’t been all that terrible but there is a lack of talent there and when all is said and done the Cavs are about a 30-33 win team.  They were just outclassed against a pair of heavyweights in New Orleans and San Antonio and I expect a third straight defeat tonight as the Pacers continue to improve and cash that ticket.

For more information: Matt Rivers says: A 2-0 sweep on the hardwoods highlighted a winning Monday and now is when I build back up the momentum and prove once again that I am the best there is. Two winners today including a 300,000* on the gridiron between Temple and Miami, Ohio along with a 200,000* hoops winner down south involving Florida Atlantic and Florida. 2-0 sweep baby. Don’t just watch me, win with me
