The Indiana Pacers have lost 6 in a row. They are 3-8 on the road this season. They are 1-1 versus Atlantic division opponents. They have failed to score 100 points in 6 of their last 7 games. Tonight is the 1st game of a back to back. Tomorrow night they play at home versus Portland.

The Toronto Raptors have dropped 2 of their last 3 games. They are 10-3 at home this season. They are 2-3 versus Central division opponents. They’ve allowed opponents to score 100 or more points in their last 9 games. Including tonight they play 3 of their next 4 games at home.

Last season Indiana and Toronto split their 4 meetings.After tonight the 2 teams play two more times this season.


This will be a battle of good offense (in the Raptors) vs good defense (in the Pacers). In this case I think good offense will overcome, especially at home. Take the Raptors -9 (1.90) (Bet365)
