Who Public Bettors Like: Boston. As of this writing, the majority of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Celtics to cover the spread.

Who We Like: The Celtics are coming off a 110-104 victory over the Wizards last night in Washington but I don't like them in this spot. Kyrie Irving just came back from injury, they're still without Gordon Hayward (leg) and Marcus Smart (hand), and thus, fatigue could be an issue.

The Pacers, meanwhile, have covered the spread in four of their last five games when facing a team with a winning percentage above .600. They've also covered in five of their last six games against an opponent from the Atlantic. They've won six of their last 10 games and have been a good bet on the road this year, going 13-12 ATS away from Indiana.
