Tonight’s Action

Indiana Pacers at Boston Celtics

Watch: 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

Odds: Celtics -2.5 || O/U 218.5

Pick: Both teams are trying to keep pace in the ultra-competitive Eastern Conference. The Celtics (15-17) have entered a mini-tailspin, dropping three in a row, and the Pacers (15-15) are only 4-6 over their last 10. 

We like the Celtics to rely on their staunch defense and snap their skid. It’s a Friday night home game. Lay the points and bet the under.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner, score, and leading scorer of Iowa-Michigan. The Wolverines blasted the Hawkeyes 79-57 behind Franz Wagner’s game-high 21. We certainly hope you took Sports Section’s advice on Michigan -4.5 and under 155.

Several subscribers had Michigan (no one chose Wagner), with David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) closest to the final score, predicting 79-68.

Keep the picks coming!
