Raptors vs. Pacers 3/17/16 NBA Picks & Predictions

While the Raptors continue their push for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, the Pacers are just trying to secure a spot in the playoffs. The two teams will meet tonight at 7:00PM ET.

Bet Tonight's Raptors vs. Pacers Game

The Raptors have won four of their last five games and 10 of 13 since February 21 but coach Dwane Casey said he'll start resting players in anticipation of the playoffs. In fact, Casey already rested leading scorer DeMar DeRosan in a 107-89 win over Milwaukee on Tuesday night and who knows if he'll pull Kyle Lowry early tonight. (Lowry rested in the fourth quarter on Tuesday, in fact.)

The Pacers, who have covered in four of their last five games, are the more desperate team as they fight to stay ahead of the Pistons and Bulls for one of the final two spots in the Eastern Conference. Toronto is also just 2-5 ATS in its last seven games playing on one day of rest so lay the small amount of points on Indiana.
