Pacers Picking Up the Pace

The Pacers went through a rough patch, but after posting three consecutive wins over the 76ers, Suns, and Grizzlies, they’re back on track.

They have also been a solid bet with NBA against the spread odds. They boast a 26-18-3 ATS record, which is a solid 11-9-1 on the road.

Bettors should be spurred on by their 133-131 victory over the Celtics earlier this month, and although that came at home, the Celtics haven’t been as dominant at TD Garden over the last two weeks.

Tyrese Haliburton has been excellent for the Pacers. He averages 23.6 points and 12.6 assists per game. Averaging 12.6 assists is quite incredible, and it shows how unselfish he is on offense.

We have no doubt that he could average around 30 PPG if he wanted to, but it’s all about team ball in Indiana.

We’re not surprised by Pacers vs Celtics NBA odds having the Pacers as underdogs. The Celtics have been more impressive, but with the series tied at 2-2, it shows there isn’t much between them.

The Pacers just require a good start to the game. Of all the NBA fixtures, this is the one they most look forward to, so expect a solid performance.

Uncover Exclusive Picks & Predictions From Our Experts.

Are the Celtics Vulnerable?

The Celtics haven’t been as explosive in recent times, despite winning 143-110 against Miami last week.

We’re referring to their home losses against the Nuggets and Clippers. They are two of the best teams in the Western Conference, so the Celtics’ NBA Championship hopes looked a little less confident.

Scoring just 96 points against the Clippers isn’t a good sign, so if the Pacers can defend well, they could make the Celtics think twice about taking open shots.

The impressive home streak, which capped at 20 games, had to end sooner or later. However, there is now pressure for them to get back to their best form in front of home fans.

Confidence levels should still be high for the Celtics, who dismantled the Pacers when they last played at TD Garden. They won 155-104, and although that score line is unlikely to be repeated on Tuesday, it’s an important form guide.

Pacers vs Celtics NBA odds rightfully have the Celtics as favorites, and they could make a statement against a fellow Eastern Conference rival.

They are 13-9 ATS at home, so they have been a profitable wager.

Statement Win for Celtics

We respect the ability of the Pacers, but the Celtics’ title hopes have come under scrutiny over the last week.

They should want to make a statement against the Pacers, so we’re picking the Celtics to cover the spread at home.

They have a solid ATS record at home, and although the Pacers are decent on the road, they are much better at home.

We expect Jayson Tatum to have a big scoring performance as he outduels Haliburton, and that could be enough to get the Celtics over the line.

Offense should be the flavor of the night. There were 264 points scored in the most recent meeting, so take the over with confidence.
