Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtic: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

The Pacers are still adapting to their new star Pascal Siakam, but more importantly there is also optimism that their superstar point guard Tyrese Haliburton could also come back any game now. Since January 9th he’s played in only 1 game due to a hamstring injury, but on Monday he did say he plans on playing vs the Celtics. That would be a huge boost for the Pacers’ chances here, who have already beaten Boston twice in 4 meetings this year, despite Haliburton averaging only 16.7 points and 8.7 assists per game in 3 of those games. Coming back from such a delicate injury, I’m not sure if the Pacers will want to rely on him heavily here. However, that’s where Siakam gets a chance to shine. He’s averaging 21 points and 5.8 rebounds per game vs the Celtics in 4 meetings this season, whoever guards him will have their hands full in this one. The Pacers have successfully covered the spread in 6 of the last 9 meetings, they head into this one as 8-point underdogs.

Boston will be playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back here, following last night’s close win over the New Orleans Pelicans. In 8 such games this season they are 6-2 SU, but after dealing with such a physical specimen like Zion Williamson down low, it’ll be interesting to see how their defense recovers in such a short timespan. Kristaps Porzingis is the most notable name on the injury report, it wouldn’t be the first time Celtics rested him this season if that were to happen. Even without him though, they are still heavy favorites to win here, they’ve beaten the Pacers 9 times in the last 10 meetings at TD Garden. Jayson Tatum has excelled this year averaging 33.3 points per game in 3 meetings, playing less than 30 minutes in 2 of them.

Indiana Pacers Point Spread Prediction

Indiana Pacers +8 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

I do like the Celtics to win this one, but Indiana is on a 3-game win streak right now and they should be able to keep things close against a team playing for the 2nd time in less than 24 hours. Let’s back the Pacers to cover the spread here.

Pacers vs Celtics Total Points Prediction: Over 241.5

Over 241.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds.

Increasing the tempo in their last 3 games has done the Pacers well, but it has also increased the scoring quite a bit with 2 of those games producing 264 and 256 points. The Celtics have also been in great form scoring the ball. Over their last 10 games they’ve had 2 nights of 20+ threes scored, plus in 2 of their last 3 most recent games they’ve shot over 50% from the field as well. Recent meetings between these teams have been very productive with an average of 240.5 points per game scored in the last 10 games. The O/U record is 6-4 during that stretch and with Haliburton set to return here I think there is a good chance those trends carry over to tonight’s game. Indiana averages almost 103 possessions per game which ranks 2nd in pace this season, they’re also top of the league in offensive rating putting up 121.2 points per 100 possessions. Boston isn’t far behind, in fact they’re 2nd in the NBA averaging 120.3 points, so we could see quite the scoring output from both sides here. Back the over.
