Why Bet on the Brooklyn Nets?
The Nets will try to sweep the Pacers in their third and final meeting in the regular season. Despite not having Kevin Durant and James Harden in the past few weeks, the Nets will remain a threat to any team in the league. But this coming Thursday, we will see Kevin Durant on the floor for the Nets once again.
After a series of wins and losses, the Nets regained momentum and are now on a 3-game winning streak, with their last one coming off a strong 103-116 victory against the Toronto Raptors. Durant finished the game with 17 points and 10 rebounds, but it was Jeff Green who led the team offensively for the Nets with 22 points and 8 rebounds.
The team also featured 5 more double-digit scorers, showcasing their deep bench and scoring abilities. Blake Griffin threw in 17 points in 22 minutes, Joe Harris had 16 points with 6 assists, Landry Shamet had 14 points, while Mike James and Tyler Johnson combined for 21 points and 11 assists. Expect these players to head into the match looking to seal the third win for the Nets.
Why Bet on the Indiana Pacers?
In recent weeks, we’ve seen the Pacers fight for playoff contention. However, the team recently lost their 3-game win streak to the Portland Trail Blazers, placing them in the No. 9 seed of the Eastern Conference behind the Charlotte Hornets.
They will try to bounce back from this defeat and regain momentum to close down on that 8th spot, or better. It’s going to be tough without Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner, but there’s still plenty of hope for the team in this upcoming Nets vs. Pacers game.
Covering for the pacers are guards Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert, both in excellent shooting form, while other players begin to gain more confidence on the floor. The likes of Doug McDermott have been strong off the bench. In his last game for the Pacers, the forward scored 13 points and collected 3 rebounds on his 14 minutes of play.
Furthermore, Justin Holiday has been sharing a sizable piece of scoring responsibilities. He recorded 20 points in his last game along with 7 rebounds in 20 minutes of playtime. These are the players to look out for as soon as the game tips off.

Nets vs. Pacers Expert Betting Prediction
The Pacers are in a tight spot and will look to come back to winning ways and end the Nets’ streak. They are 9th in the standings over in the East and are needing more wins to feel confident about their playoff chances. On the other hand, the Nets are in solid form and are in a comfortable position leading up to the playoffs.
If the Pacers can deliver a solid performance similar to their previous game against the Magic, they can threaten to cover the spread and even make a run for the win. But, if they don’t hold back the tempo of the Nets, they can get in trouble early into the game.
