The Toronto Raptors host the Indiana Pacers tonight and look to potentially move out of the No. 7 seed. If the Raptors get the win and the Cavaliers lose, Toronto will no longer be in the play-in game. This game has huge ramifications on the Eastern conference playoff standings.

Indiana, coming off a loss to Sacramento, is just looking to develop and play spoiler. Can the Pacers do that tonight?

Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Pacers vs. Raptors Prediction and Pick

Toronto has been up-and-down all season long and hasn't been a double-digit favorite often. But when it has, the Raptors have taken advantage. Toronto is 2-0 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season. Indiana hasn't been as great as double-digit underdogs. The Pacers are 2-3 in their last five games as a double-digit dog.

The Raptors are 7-3 in the last 10 games, and I think they continue their hot streak tonight. Indiana can score with most of the teams in the league (11th in offensive rating over the last 10 games). The Pacers' issue is the defensive side of the ball. Their defensive rating in this span is 120.2. That's the fourth-worst mark in the league.

Unless the Pacers can suddenly lock up, this game will have a lot of points and they'll come from one side.

Lean: Raptors -10.5 (-110)
