The Raptors are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Pacers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

I'm not sure if it will last, but the Toronto Raptors are playing their best ball of the season and just beat the Pacers yesterday despite 41 percent shooting from the field and 16 turnovers. The Raptors have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Pacers. The Indiana Pacers aren't impressing anybody right now and are a tough club to lay chalk with. For the first time in a while, I'll get behind the Raptors and the points.
