The Indiana Pacers are favored in this one (-7.5) against the Boston Celtics, and it almost seems like the line is too low. Would still take the Pacers on the over and here is the TV scheduling for that one. It tips off at 7:30 PM EST.
TV: FS-Indiana, CSN-New England, DTV: 630, 673, 755, 756
The Pacers have just been locked in to start the year, and they appear to have their sight set on the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. Paul George, who had the good fortune to interview last summer, looks like he has taken another step in his development into a superstar and he has even been hitting his jumper with higher regularity, which is quite nice to see from the forward. Was also quite pleased to see the Pacers keep power forward David West in town.
The Celtics on the other hand are a team that was built to lose, so betting on them in a gambling scenario especially against an elite team is a dangerous proposition. Brad Stevens will develop into a great coach one day, but at the moment he just does not have the talent on his roster to get anything done in the regular season. They sure will have a high draft pick though!
Keep an eye out for more of these previews later this morning and then some Prep Sports content later tonight. Thanks for reading folks.
