How To Bet On Pacers Raptors – Pacers Look To Snap Losing Streak Versus Raptors Friday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/26/2013 6:07:16 PM

The Indiana Pacers have thrived in some difficult situations this season in terms of scheduling, including this year’s only string of three games in as many nights, during which they won all three against the Bulls, Hawks, and 76ers. While this stretch may not be as difficult as that one, the Pacers will play four games in six nights this week, with the one trip being up north to Ontario, Canada to play the Toronto Raptors. Indiana has dropped back-to-back games against Toronto since beating them in their sports betting season opener, and with the New York Knicks fighting with the Pacers for the second spot in the conference, there isn’t much room for error.

Even after Indiana put together four-straight wins there is only one-half game separating the Pacers and New York for second spot in the conference. With two of the best home records in the NBA, the Knicks and Indiana each know how important it will be to clinch that second spot for a potential second round playoff series, and they’re playing like it.

The Pacers have been one of the most dominant Eastern Conference teams in the second half, and will only get better with Danny Granger being fully instituted in to their rotation. Indiana has lacked an All-Star caliber game-changer on offense all year, and with Granger finally back it makes the team that much more dangerous. David West and Paul George have alternated as the leading scorers for the Pacers all year, and could be even better with less focus on them. Indiana has already carved an identity as the league leaders in both rebounding and average points allowed, and that won’t change.

The Raptors could end up being the thorn in the side of the Pacers that holds them back from clinching the second spot, as they have already won two of three games between these teams and are ready for the fourth. Toronto has been a much more dangerous team since they added Rudy Gay, and while they still need to be more consistent at both ends of the floor, there are some key pieces already there and in place. Gay and Kyle Lowry have work really well together already, but the Raptors need more help up front where Andrea Bargnani has been relegated to the bench, and Amir Johnson and rookie Jonas Valanciunas need more help.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The online betting numbers suggest the Pacers are the favorites even though they have lost two of three against Toronto and are traveling in the midst of a busy schedule, and that just shows the difference in talent level and urgency between the two teams. Indiana can’t afford to lose three in a row against a team that isn’t even competing for a playoff spot, so don’t think that will happen.
