I’m now 8-9 in Raptors free picks as Cleveland (-6) was victorious versus Toronto but only by 4, 105-101 on Tuesday evening. Tonight the Raptors play at home versus the 7-15 Indiana Pacers.
(7-15) Indiana Pacers @ (16-6) Toronto Raptors
Probable starting line-ups:
Indiana – Point Guard – Rodney Stuckey Shooting Guard – Solomon Hill C- Roy Hibbert Small Forward – Chris Copeland Power Forward – David West
Toronto – PG – Kyle Lowry SG – Terrence Ross C – Jonas Valanciunas SF – Landry Fields PF – Amir Johnson
Indiana – Points Per Game – Rodney Stuckey 12.7 Rebounds Per Game – Lavoy Allen 7.5 Assists Per Game – Donald Sloan 4.8
Toronto – PPG – Kyle Lowry 20.6 RPG – Jonas Valanciunas 8.4 APG – Kyle Lowry 6.8
Team Scoring: (with league ranking in parentheses)
Indiana – Points For (Per Game) – 93.5 (28th) Points Against (Per Game) – 97.1 (7th)
Toronto – PF – 109.7 (2nd) PA – 99.7 (16th)
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)
