It follows that when Kawhi Leonard departed Toronto for Los Angeles gamblers ran for the tall grass. That has since changed. Head coach Nick Nurse has employed a highly successful team approach that has the Raptors atop the Atlantic Division. In the same way, the Pacers are routinely ignored as a Bet on NBA possibility. Indiana is one of the most profitable teams on the board. In like manner to the Raps, the Pacers utilize strong defense to get the cash. Another asset has returned from injury in the person of Victor Oladipo. VO brings Indianas’ offensive ability.

Toronto Raptors vs. Indiana Pacers NBA games Betting Odds Picks
As mentioned earlier the Raptors have been a strong Bet on NBA value at Indiana. Ironically enough Nurse has done a better coaching job this year than when TO won the 2018-19 NBA Finals. Of course, the Pacers merit plenty of respect as well. But this spot should offer more wagering value with Toronto.
