Pacers vs Trail Blazers Preview

Portland will travel to Indiana on Sunday for a battle versus the Pacers. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Sunday’s game, check out our Pacers vs Blazers preview below.

Portland Collapsed As Of Late

The Portland Trail Blazers have had a season that they’re going to want to flush down the drain when it is finished.

They’ve had to deal with some unfortunate injuries to some of their best players, and that has resulted in them being one of the bottom half teams in the Western Conference. They recently had a playoff spot, as they were the number 10 seed for a few weeks, but were unable to keep control of that as they have gone 1-9 in their last 10 games. Portland’s going to be coming into this one after a disappointing loss to the Brooklyn Nets, losing 128-123.

Portland is going to be coming in with the 26th rated net rating, the 24th rated offensive rating, and the 29th rated defensive rating.

Indiana Getting Better

The Indiana Pacers have still played below-average basketball throughout their last 10 games, but they’ve looked better ever since they acquired Tyrese Haliburton for Domantas Sabonis over the NBA trade deadline.

They’re going to be coming into this one after a nice win against the Houston Rockets that saw them win by three points.

On the season, Indiana has the 22nd rated net rating, the 15th rated offensive rating, and the 27th ranked defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Pacers vs Trail Blazers

For this game, I’m going to go with the Indiana Pacers to cover the spread. I am a bit worried that Indiana is not going to cover 7.5 points, but Portland has been one of the worst teams in the NBA the past few weeks.

Considering that they’ve only won one out of their last 10 games and have hardly competed in most of them, I’m going to have to go with Indiana to cover the spread in this one.
