Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtics Prediction


Indiana Pacers Prediction

The Pick : INDIANA PACERS +10.5 -120


  • I understand why we see Boston favored like this, we have to consider that they're at home with a big rest advantage and simply are the more talented team.

  • However, this is a ton of points to just give to the Pacers in a game one of a playoff series! We cannot underestimate the Pacers scoring ability. I know not having Porzingis is a big hit when factoring in the Pacers size but they have been holding up well so far with out him.

  • The Pacers were the best scoring team in the NBA this season, and that remains true in these playoffs. That gives the Pacers a fighting chance. Also, this will be just the fourth time the Pacers are a double-digit underdog this season. Don't get this very often.

  • The Celtics have failed to cover their last 3 games as double-digit favorites, and they've lost outright as a double-digit favorite 4 times since March 25. Too many points. Give me the Pacers and the boatload of free buckets in game 1 against the Celtics.

  • We will happily take all these points tonight and look for the Pacers to keep this game much closer then most expect!
