Of the four NBA Playoffs games being played Sunday, Cleveland appeared to be getting the most one-sided action at 65% versus the Indiana Pacers.  The line had not moved off the -6.5 favoring the Cavs.  Some of the larger online recreational books had moved to -7.

Indiana:
Team record: 48-34 SU,47-35 ATS
Indiana is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games
Indiana is 7-3 SU in its last 10 games
The total has gone UNDER in 16 of Indiana's last 22 games

Cleveland:
Team record: 50-32 SU,32-49-1 ATS
Cleveland is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 games
Cleveland is 11-3 SU in its last 14 games
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Cleveland's last 9 games

The NBA Betting Power Ratings indicate a 2.5 overlay here.

Indiana has been hot Against The Spread this season, 47-35-0, whereas Cleveland has not (32-49-1).

The Pacers have won three of the last four meetings vs. the Cavaliers.  Cleveland is an improved team having revamped its rosters following these losses to Indiana.

We expect Indiana to cover here at +7
