Indiana Pacers vs Miami Heat betting tips and predictions for Tuesday’s NBA on TNT clash. With just 3 wins in 14 road games this season, the Indiana Pacers travel to South Beach to take on the Miami Heat. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Things are finally returning to normal for the Indiana Pacers as head coach Rick Carlisle is scheduled to return after missing the last 4 games with covid-19. The team went 2-2 during that stretch without him, with the 2 defeats coming against Milwaukee and Golden State which is something that would have probably happened even if he was there. Nevertheless, the Pacers are coming off a win over the Pistons and are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games. Most importantly, health wise this team is in a really good position compared to the rest of the league. They get back Malcolm Brogdon for this one and the only absentee is TJ McConnell who has an injured wrist. They’ve split the first 2 meetings of the season with the Heat and whoever wins tonight’s game takes the regular season series.
Miami isn’t as lucky on the injury front sadly. They are missing P.J. Tucker, Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, Markieff Morris, Caleb Martin and potentially Tyler Herro. Those are all very important pieces of this team, without them they lost to a Pistons team over the weekend which was on a 15-game losing streak. Tonight’s game is a decent bounce back opportunity, the Heat are 8-4 ATS in their last 12 home games, however this team struggles for some reason in games played on a Tuesday. They’ve covered just twice in their last 7 played on that day. Players like Duncan Robinson and Kyle Lowry will have to step up to compensate for the current roster shortage they have.
Indiana isn’t anywhere close to being a good road team, but they are facing a Miami squad that was able to score only 90 points against probably the worst team in the NBA. They are by far healthier and have 4 wins in their last 6 games overall. Take the Pacers to cover in this one.

Bettors have made a lot of money by backing the under in recent Indiana Pacers road games. That bet has landed a whopping 10 times in their last 11 away from home, we could very easily see that trend continue in tonight’s game. In the last 10 meetings these two teams are scoring only 210 points per game and that number is even lower in the 3 most recent meetings with both teams averaging under 100 points. The total has gone under 7 times in the last 10 head-to-head, which is also very encouraging. I’ve mentioned the injuries to the Heat roster several times already, as a result they are averaging only 102 points per game in their last 3 outings, which is the 3rd lowest mark in the NBA. The Pacers have opted to slow things down in their games recently, they are playing at only the 24th fastest pace in the NBA over the first 3 weeks of this month. All in all I think we are in for a low scoring game here, so let’s go with the under.
