Prediction for the NBA Indiana vs Houston match will take place on March 10th. Who will turn out to be stronger? Check the team conditions! Several betting options are available.
The Pacers are looking good after the All-Star break. The young Rick Carlisle’s team failed just once, losing on the road to San Antonio (99-110), putting up severe resistance to the Eastern Conference leaders Boston (138-142 (125-125) in overtime) and Philadelphia (143-147). They defeated powerful Dallas and direct playoff contenders Chicago (125-122) and Orlando (121-108). There’s no doubt that Indiana will fight for a playoff spot at the end of the regular season. The team is 12th in the East and just two wins behind the top 10.
Despite their two wins over San Antonio (122-110 and 142-110), the Rockets are still in last place in the Western Conference. In their previous meeting, they lost on the road to Brooklyn (96-118) without a chance to convince. Thus, the chances of Steven Silas’ team closing the league standings and getting a high draft pick have increased.
Expert Betting Tips
The first team meeting this season was an under one, and Indiana won 99-91. But that was at the beginning of the championship, and it is unlikely that you should expect a repetition of this unproductive history at this stage. Houston is the last team in the league in terms of defense at the three-point arc, and Indiana, with their excellent three-point offense, will likely take advantage of that. We’ll bet, accordingly, on a TU and take a convincing win for Indiana. Rick Carlisle’s team cannot afford to lose to the underdogs in the race for the playoff spot.
