Let’s dive into my SGP bet now!

Pacers ML (-225)

Myles Turner to score 20+ points (+155)

Jalen Brunson Over 6.5 assists (+104)

Same Game Parlay odds: +512

Pacers ML (-225)

The sixth-seeded Pacers secured a much-needed 111-106 home win in Game 3 to get back into their best-of-seven series. But in the words of the late great Kobe Bryant “job’s not finished”. That’s the mindset the Pacers must have as they head into a pivotal Game 4 against the Knicks tonight. Losing here would bring them on the verge of elimination with the next game being played at Madison Square Garden.

With OG Anunoby’s status still unclear (hamstring) and Jalen Brunson (foot) clearly not at 100% health, the Pacers’ uber-efficient offense figures to be able to score consistently against the banged-up Knicks. It’s difficult to envision another big night from Donte DiVincenzo who exploded for 35 points in Game 3, and with the Pacers throwing wing Aaron Nesmith on Brunson for defense, a less efficient showing from their star guard likely leads to a series split in Game 4.

Myles Turner to score 20+ points (+155)

Apart from Game 2, Turner has been very effective on offense for the Pacers scoring 23 points in Game 1 and 21 in Game 3 on Friday. He made a pair of threes in both of those games, while also shooting 50% of better. He has now scored at least 20 points in 5 of 9 games played this postseason run, against the Bucks in the 1st Round he had a streak of 3 straight 20+ point performances. New York is one of his most favorite opponents, he’s scored at least 20 points against them in 5 of the last 10 meetings. Tyrese Haliburton’s back and ankle injuries have most Pacers’ fans worried here, after scoring 35 points in Game 3 I think he reverts back to his usual distributor role here which should inflate the scoring numbers for the likes of Siakam and our guy Turner. The Knicks are down to just one center in Isaiah Hartenstein, I’m just not sure they can keep up with the versatility of Turner on offense.

Jalen Brunson Over 6.5 assists (+104)

For only the 2nd time this postseason somebody else led the Knicks in scoring other than Jalen Brunson. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Knicks are well aware others will have to step up, particularly on offense, if they want to get past these high scoring Pacers. Brunson needs to make it a priority of his to get others involved, just like he did in the 1st Round against Philadelphia where he averaged 9 assists per game. That number is down to 5.7 per game in this series, a double-digit assist game could be coming soon. With the likes of Donte DiVincenzo, Miles McBride and Alec Burks finally stepping up in Game 3, Brunson has a number of players to choose from in helping him carry the scoring load. It took the Knicks to reach 121 and 130 points to beat Indy in the first two games, if they get close to those numbers here I’m convinced Brunson will clear this line with ease.
