Joe’s Pick To Cover The Spread

Both teams are coming into this one, having played yesterday and each taking losses. The Pacers are coming off a game in what was essentially a track meet vs. the Lakers, while the Clippers failed to take advantage of being at home vs. the Sixers. With the spread sitting at -6.5, I’m taking the Clippers to get back on track and cover the spread.
