NBA Betting Trends
The Raptors are 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games on one day of rest. Toronto is 4-0 ATS in its last four games following an ATS loss.
The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in their last six Friday games. Indiana is 2-5 ATS in its last seven home games.
Toronto received all it could handle from Toronto two nights ago and with Indiana getting in a comfort zone a little more every game with Oladipo back in the lineup, it's hard not to like the hosts here. The Raptors have covered 12 of the last 17 meetings in Indiana, but this Pacers team could use a big win as they look to show they are going to be a major player in the Eastern Conference down the stretch.
