NBA Betting : Resilient Raptors Take 3-2 Lead Into Indiana on Friday 4/29

April 27th, 2016

Image result for velociraptor imageThe Toronto Raptors were down by double-digits through most of Game 5, but they dominated the fourth quarter to win Game 5 by 102-99 on Tuesday night over the Indiana Pacers.

From a betting standpoint, the Indiana Pacers still managed to cash in as 7-point road dogs, but they’ll be behind the 8-ball Friday night when they host Toronto in Game 6 on Friday night in Indianapolis.

This Eastern Conference quarterfinal has seen each team make multiple adjustments to gain an advantage over the other. On Tuesday, the Raptors benched Luis Scola and started Patrick Patterson at power forward; it wasn’t effective, as Patterson posted a minus-20 after struggling at both ends. However, Indiana committed 14 turnovers to Toronto’s seven, handing the game and the series back to the Raptors.

Game 5 also saw the two teams go over the closing total of 194 points, up from 192 at the open. Unders had previously dominated 4-0 in this series, and 24-10 in the playoffs overall going into Tuesday’s action. Paul George helped change that with 39 points for Indiana, while Toronto’s DeMar Derozan finally broke out of his shooting slump, scoring 34 points on 10-of-22 from the floor and 12-of-13 from the free-throw line.
