The Indiana Pacers, behind their high-scoring offense, have won three of their last four games, including a big road win against the New York Knicks. They are set to face the Charlotte Hornets on Monday, with questions surrounding the Pacers' ability to cover a double-digit spread on the road and whether the Hornets, who snapped a 10-game losing streak, are worth an investment as a big home underdog.
