BETTING TRENDS

Indiana are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.

Indiana are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games against Toronto.s.

Toronto are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games.

Toronto are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

This is a meaningless game for the Pacers who just want this season to be over but for the Raptors this a very important game as they're tied with Cleveland and fighting for the 6th place and try to avoid the play-in segment of the postseason. Toronto already destroyed the Pacers at home and I think they'll do it again. Take the Raptors to cover.

PICK: Raptors -11 (-110)
