A lot of bettors are going to be attracted to the Pacers one night after they destroyed the visiting Warriors by a count of 126-106. But Indiana is 27-13 straight up at home as opposed to 20-19 on the road, plus it will be a fatigued team from a back-to-back. Toronto is 32-7 at home and even though it already has the top seed wrapped up in the Eastern Conference, a day off after defeating the Celtics 96-78 at home two nights ago will serve it well. Take the Raptors at home as they prep for the postseason.
