NBA Predictions: Can Pacers record upset over Raptors? 3/15/18

Will the Indiana Pacers impress at home and defeat the Eastern Conference's top team in the Toronto Raptors tonight when they play at 7PM ET?

701 Toronto Raptors at 702 Indiana Pacers, 7PM ET


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Raptors are a 4-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 213.5 points.

Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 15, 2018


Toronto opened as the 4-point favorite it is now, while the total has come down a point from 214.5. Everywhere I look the spread is at -4 with the total at 213.5, but still shop around to see if anything has moved.


As of Thursday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Raptors. Online wager info also shows that 62 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Toronto small forward OG Anunoby (ankle) iand fellow small forward Norman Powell (ankle) are both doubtful to play tonight. For Indiana, power forward Trevor Booker (ankle) is questionable while power forward Domantas Sabonis (ankle) is out.


The Raptors are a very solid 22-12 straight up on the road, while the Pacers enter at 23-12 at home. Indiana won 107-104 the last time these two squads met with the Pacers as the home team back in November. In the second meeting at Toronto, the Raptors won 120-115 on Dec. 1 but again Indiana covered the spread. The Pacers seem to match up well and this spread feels a bit like a trap. I'm going to say Indiana gets it done on its home court.
