Rickenbach NBA *10* Top Play Indiana Pacers +6 @ Toronto @ 8:05 ET - Forget pointspreads for a minute...let's just talk about some straight-up numbers in this one. The Pacers have won 2 of the last 3 games. They won 2 of the 3 games in Indiana and one could also argue that they should have won 2 of the 3 games in Toronto. Remember the Pacers blew Game 5 here in Toronto as they had a big double digit lead going to the 4th quarter. Indiana showed their resolve and bounced back by getting the home win in Game 6 so that they could force this Game 7. The value that gives us here is that the Pacers have the momentum in the series, they have the confidence of knowing they can win at Toronto (won one here but should have won two), and they've got the psychological factor working in their favor too as the Raptors have such a negative stigma about failing in the playoffs including in Game Sevens on their home floor. Now, all of the above said, this should be simply a fantastic game where it would not surprise if Indiana is the team that ends up advancing. That said, in a series where home court has really proven to not be that big of a deal, if you're going to give me the team with the momentum, the better frame of mind (postseason failures in Toronto's mind), and you're going to give me a half dozen points too...I am going to jump all over that anytime! That is why this is a top play as I look for Paul George to come up huge once again for the Pacers. Indiana is now 8-5 ATS in first round playoff games while the Raptors are 4-12 ATS in first round playoff games the past three seasons. Toronto will be feeling the pressure just win this game...let alone get the cover. I look for a Pacers upset but will grab all the available points in this one. *10* INDIANA
