Chicago Bulls vs Indiana Pacers: Prediction (Mar 27, 2024)

Chicago Bulls vs Indiana Pacers: Prediction (Mar 27, 2024)

The Chicago Bulls will face the Indiana Pacers on March 27 (Wednesday) at the United Center. The Pacers are looking to improve their playoff standings. They are currently in 6th place in the Eastern Conference with a 41-32 record and are trailing behind Orlando Magic by two games. Meanwhile, the Bulls are in ninth place in the East and have a 1.5-game lead over the Atlanta Hawks. 

 

Preview 

Pascal Siakam has been performing really well for the Pacers and is showing great chemistry with his teammates. He has been scoring more than 25 points per game in Indiana’s wins. The 6th placed Pacers are hoping to avoid getting down to the Play-in tournament zone as they now own a 1.5 game lead over the Miami Heat. 

On the other hand, the Chicago Bulls are a strong team as well and are expected to give the Pacers a tough battle in the upcoming matchup. Chicago’s power forward DeMar DeRozan is the leading player to capture the NBA Clutch Player of the Year, so Indiana will look to make a game plan for him, especially in the final minutes of the game. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Indiana Pacers are expected to start with Andrew Nembhard, Tyrese Haliburton, Pascal Siakam, Myles Turner and Ben Sheppard. 

Zach LaVine is out with an injury, so the Bulls will most likely start with Torrey Craig, Coby White, Ayo Dosunmu, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic. 

 

Betting tips 

Pascal Siakam has an over/under of 22.5 points for the upcoming matchup. He has gone over this mark in his last four games. You can bet on him to go over this time as well. 

DeMar DeRozan has been a reliable scorer for the Chicago Bulls this season. He has an over/under of 25.5 points for the upcoming game. He has gone over this point prop three times in the last four games. Bet on him to go over against the Pacers.
