Boston Celtics VS Indiana Pacers. The NBA pick to win the game is the Indiana Pacers -1.5. The Celtics lost all their preseason games and are currently riding on a 2-skid game for the regular season. With Gordon Hayward no longer around, Boston is off to a sloppy start with a depleted defense. The Indiana Pacers may have lost all their preseason games, but they’re saving face with back-to-back wins for the regular season. The upcoming match-up will be as exciting as the previous one, as these 2 rivals balance out each other. The Pacers will eventually reign supreme as they’re a more consistent team equipped with a better offensive line and solid defenses to a predicted score of 111-109.
