LOS ANGELES LAKERS VS INDIANA PACERS
Lakers to Cover $1.90

Two of this season’s biggest underachievers are set to go toe-to-toe at the crypto.com Arena on Thursday arvo (AEST).

The Pacers were tipped by many to waltz their way into the playoffs this year, instead, they are currently sitting 3rd last in the East off the back of a 15-29 record.

A huge factor in the Pacers’ demise has been their away form, currently holding an atrocious record of 3-17 on the road!

Meanwhile, a mixture of injuries and poor recruitment has hamstrung the Lakers 2021/22 campaign, as the Westbrook experiment looks to have blown up in LeBron’s face.

Not all is lost in LA though, with the Lakers putting on a clinic against the more fancied Jazz last time out, with LeBron continuing his recent damaging form.

The Lakers already comfortably accounted for the Pacers on the road earlier this season, a feat I’m expecting them to repeat on their own court.
