Match Predict – Handicap (-6) for Celtics
The Indiana Pacers are unlikely to be able to stop the Boston Celtics. The Pacers have looked too unconvincing in recent games. They are too dependent on their leaders. If the Celtics can shut down Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton, they won’t have much trouble in this game.
Total Points Under 240
In their last meeting, the teams scored 229 points. It’s unlikely to change much in this game. The Indiana Pacers’ performance has been lacklustre, so we have our doubts about the home team’s chances.
