Pacers at Raptors picks and predictions

Prediction

Raptors 118, Pacers 110

Moneyline

Home-court advantage actually means something for these two sub-.500 % teams. Indiana has a 13-23 road record versus Toronto’s 23-13 home record. The Raptors also have the 2nd best assist to turnover ratio (1.98) in the league.

I don’t expect Indiana (+270) and Toronto (-330) is too expensive for a wager, so I will PASS on the moneyline.

Against the spread

The Raptors are 4-5 ATS as favorites of 7.5-9.5 points and the Pacers are 5-2 ATS as underdogs of 7.5-9.5 points.

Indiana has covered 4 of its last 5 road games.

LEAN PACERS +7.5 (+100).

Over/Under

Toronto leads the NBA in opponents’ field goal attempts per game (82.6). The Pacers and Raptors also struggle offensively, ranking 25th and 26th in shooting percentage, respectively.

The Pacers have hit the Under in 8 of their last 11 games on 1 day of rest.

BET UNDER 234.5 (-112).
