Indiana Pacers Betting

The Pacers continue to prove that they are one of the underrated teams of the season. Indiana’s campaign got a major boost with Victor Oladipo back in action. Better yet, his minutes restriction has been lifted, giving head coach Nate McMillan even more good news. But it may need a collective effort considering they are up against the unpredictable Raptors. T.J. Warren, Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon need to step up if the Pacers want to score their third straight win.

Players to watch: T.J. Warren SF 52 GP 52 GS 32.3 MIN 18.5 PTS 0.9 OR 2.8 DR 3.7 REB 1.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 1.2 TO 2.7 PF 1.2 AST/TO 17.56 PER

Toronto Raptors Betting

The Raptors remain formidable and amazing, proving they can succeed even without Kawhi Leonard. A big reason for that is Pascal Siakam, Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet. These holdovers have responded well for head coach Nick Nurse. Through their efforts, Toronto is hoping to make it back-to-back and ranking well can help. Defense has been the key for the Raptors success. Toronto is expected to unravel that once more against the surging Pacers.

Players to Watch: P. Siakam PF 44 GP 44 GS 35 MIN 23.5 PTS 1.2 OR 6.4 DR 7.5 REB 3.5 AST 1 STL 0.9 BLK 2.4 TO 2.8 PF 1.4 AST/TO 18.93 PER
