Gut-Check Time for Playoff Hopeful Pacers

The Indiana Pacers are on the outside looking in at the Eastern Conference playoff picture and time is starting to run out. Paul George and company will have to get the job done against one of the East’s top teams, the Toronto Raptors, on Tuesday. Sportsbooks opened the Raps as 2.5-point underdogs with a total of 206.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Raptors' last five games on the road against the Pacers.
  • The visiting team is 0-6 SU in its last six games in this matchup.
  • The Pacers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

Indiana’s struggles since before the all-star break have been well documented. The Pacers, who were 29-22 SU on February 6, are just 8-18 over the last 26 games and are sitting in the ninth spot thanks to the eighth-place Miami Heat owning a tiebreaker between the squads.

George is doing everything he can to lift his team right now, as the superstar is averaging 32.5 points over the last four games and collected 43 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in Sunday’s 135-130 loss to Cleveland.

Toronto is cruising without the services of point guard Kyle Lowry thanks to wins in eight of the past nine heading into tonight. DeMar DeRozan torched Indiana in the previous meeting between the clubs last week, going off for 40 in a 111-100 triumph.
