NBA Tuesday 10* Top Play Indiana Pacers +1.5 vs Chicago Bulls @ 7:10 ET - I am aware of the fact that Andrew Nembhard is listed as questionable for this one with an illness. But he played through that illness Saturday at Phoenix and I do expect him to play here tonight and to be stronger. I know he missed practice yesterday but that was likely just to get him as healthy and full-strength as possible before this game. Even if he does not play, I like the Pacers here at home. Yes they have lost 7 straight games but they have a huge rest edge here. Bulls are in the 2nd game of a B2B after facing the Hawks last night. Chicago also just got back their long travel to Paris late last week. That said, this B2B could prove to be too much as the Pacers have a big rest edge coming off B2B days off. Also, there is plenty of motivation for the Pacers here as they lost early this season at Chicago and they also are hungry to end their losing streak. As for the Bulls, yes they have won 3 straight but they have NEVER WON 4 in a row this season! Also, when on the road this season and having won at least 2 straight games, the Bulls have gone 1-5 SU in those games. Adding to the value here is that this is a B2B for Chicago and they were just in Europe at the end of last week. 10* INDIANA +1.5
