Raptors Badly Need to Rebound After Disastrous Showing at MSG

The Indiana Pacers have been one of the most surprising teams in the NBA this season and will look to keep their surprising run going against the Toronto Raptors at home on Friday.

MyBookie opened the Raps as 2-point road favorites with a total of 215.

Shark Bites
  • The Pacers are 14-5 SU in their last 19 games at home after consecutive road games.
  • The Raptors are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Pacers' last five games as home underdogs.

The Pacers are going to get very comfortable at home, as this matchup begins a three-game homestand for the team. Indy play six in a row at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in early December and 17 of 24 in Indianapolis through the middle of January. Victor Oladipo’s rise with the club has been nothing short of spectacular in light of a 29-point, nine rebound and seven steal showing in the Pacers’ 105-97 victory over Orlando on Monday.

Toronto had an awful showing in its last time out against the New York Knicks – a 108-100 setback at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. The Knicks put forth a ridiculous 28-0 run during the third quarter of that game, which equated to the worst quarter the Raptors have endured in franchise history. The Raps had a four-game winning streak snapped in the loss.

The Pacers have long struggled against the Dinos, evidenced by Indiana going 2-9 SU in its last 11 meetings with the Raptors. Toronto took two of three last season. Home court advantage has been huge in this series. In the last seven clashes between the Eastern Conference squads, visiting teams are 0-7 SU.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Toronto Raptors betting line opened this morning as -3.5-point favorites in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark (including Bovada), while the total was hovering around 215.5 at BetOnline and other betting odds shops.
