The visiting Los Angeles Clippers betting line opened this morning as 4-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Vegas Sports Daily, while the total was hovering around 221.5 at Westgate and other Vegas sports books.
A 110-104 result in favor of the Pacers is my prediction handicapping this game.
The Los Angeles Clippers will try to spoil the party on Friday; they are (38-33) ATS against the betting spread this NBA season, while the Indiana Pacers are (40-32) ATS. Los Angeles is (39-31-1) vs. the betting total points scored; Indiana is (26-43-3).

Power Rankings have the Indiana Pacers at No. 11 and the Los Angeles Clippers at No. 21 heading into this NBA contest.
In rebounding, the battle of the boards features Indiana’s No. 22-rated NBA squad against Los Angeles’ No. 13-rated roster. When it comes to long-range shooting, Indiana rates No. 26 in the league with 9.01 per game, while their foes tonight rank No. 21 with 9.87 per outing.
DeAndrea’s 20/20 game
DeAndre Jordan scored 25 points and added 22 rebounds for a double-double, leading Los Angeles over Milwaukee, 127-120, on Wednesday at Bradley Center.
Indiana got 21 points from Victor Oladipo but lost anyway 96-92 against the Pelicans on Wednesday at Smoothie King Center.
I like the Indiana Pacers to win at home and the under. Follow Mike Dixon in Twitter at @MikeDixonSports
