Tonight’s Action

Golden State Warriors at Indiana Pacers

Watch: 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Odds: Pacers -1.5 || O/U 231

Pick: The Warriors are concluding a four-game, six-day road trip with the second of back-to-back games. Meanwhile, the Pacers haven’t played in a week. Golden State is bolstered by the returns of James Wiseman and Kevon Looney, but Steph and Co. will run out of gas. Take Indiana on the moneyline and don’t worry about the spread; we like the over.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Kansas-Texas, the score and leading scorer. The Longhorns won 75-72 in overtime with the Jayhawks’ Ochai Agbaji putting up a game-high 17. Sports Section nailed Texas -2½ (never a doubt!), but thanks to Kansas’ torrid first half and the overtime, we (undeservedly) missed on the under 138.5. 

Subscriber Afshin Zahraee was all over it, predicting a 79-71 Texas win. Congrats, Afshin! Did you parlay those by any chance?

Keep the picks coming!
