The Indiana Pacers are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have won five of their last seven road games.
The Toronto Raptors look to keep the ball rolling while building on their 11-game winning streak. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 112.6 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 105.9 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 23.7 points and 7.6 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 19.4 points and 7.3 assists.

The Pacers are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Pacers last 5 overall. The over is 8-3 in Raptors last 11 overall. The Pacers are 12-27 ATS in the last 39 meetings in Toronto and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers have been a bit hit or miss lately, and they can be a bit shaky defensively on the road where they allow 45.4 percent shooting from the field and 36.8 percent shooting from deep. The Toronto Raptors are 16-9 ATS at home and are currently playing some of their best basketball where they're winning their last five games by an average of 13.2 points. The home team has won nine of the last 10 meetings between the Raptors and Pacers. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Raptors.
