The Toronto Raptors are averaging 112.7 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 106.1 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 23.7 points and 7.7 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 19.7 points and 7.3 assists. Fred VanVleet is the third double-digit scorer and Serge Ibaka is grabbing eight rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors have won nine straight road games.
The Indiana Pacers need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 109.6 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.1 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.3 points and 4.7 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18.1 points and 3.7 rebounds. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Jeremy Lamb is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have split their last six home games.
The Raptors are 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games playing on 1 days rest. The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The over is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Pacers last 6 overall. The Raptors are 12-5 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Indiana and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings in Indiana.
The Indiana Pacers had the Raptors beat Wednesday night on the road but ended up losing due to an epic collapse in the final two minutes. You have to believe the Pacers are going to be out for revenge and get that nasty taste out of their mouth. The home team has won nine of the last 10 meetings between the Raptors and Pacers, and Indiana wins at home by an average of 4.4 points while shooting 46.9 percent from the field. Because of the way Wednesday night went down, I'll side with the Pacers at home in this pick em game to redeem themselves.
