You know it. I know it. We all know it. The Pacers season is over.
Indiana is 3-16 over its last 19 games. But just because a top six seed is out of the question, it doesn’t mean fans can’t still have some fun – and make money – during the home stretch.
That opportunity begins tonight against a red-hot Boston Celtics team thanks to a limited-time offer from Caesars Sportsbook: a fully insured first bet worth up to $1,250!
I’ve picked out three plus-money bets you can consider using with your risk-free wager, but first, let’s get you all the details you need to opt into this promotion.

Three Bold Predictions for Celtics at Pacers
This game might not be very competitive for long, but there can still be fun things to root for along the way.
Since we know the Celtics are the favorite, let’s check out some props that favor Boston winning, but include at least one Pacer, too.
Tatum and Haliburton to Each Make Over 2.5 3-pointers (+240)
This is a special Caesars odds boost that will be fun to take. Jayson Tatum is averaging 3.7 made 3-pointers per game this month, making shots beyond the arc at a 40.6% clip.
Haliburton hasn’t been as effective, but he’s still a dangerous marksman. The Pacers guard has averaged just 2.5 made 3-pointers per game, but is making them at a 40% rate.
When you factor in that Tatum almost always gets his regardless of circumstance and the Pacers will be trailing, I could see a scenario where Haliburton is forced to shoot from deep to keep his team in the game.
These players are both averaging at or above this line. At +240 odds, that’s a bet I’ll take.
Robert Williams III to Record a Double-Double (+190)
This bet isn’t so exciting until you look at the value it provides. In the month of February, Williams III is averaging 9.5 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. He’s recorded a double-double in five of his past 10 games, and the Pacers are 25th in the NBA in shooting percentage.
There will be PLENTY of chances for rebounds for Williams III and if the stars rest at all during the second half, he could easily reach double-digit scoring, too.
Near 2-to-1 odds on a player who is nearly averaging a double-double for the entire month is one of the best values you’ll find in this game.
Celtics -8 + Under 234.5 (+264)
We’ve basically covered this bet by now. The Pacers have been one of the most consistent losing teams since the New Year, and there’s no good reason to believe that will end tonight against the top seed in the East.
I see the Celtics pulling away early and if they do, this could trend toward the under as the game becomes uncompetitive.
The last time these teams matched up, Indiana won, 117-112 in a game that wasn’t decided until the very end. If this one gets out of hand, there’s a good chance the scoring slows enough to smash the under.
Regardless of what picks you choose tonight, the most important thing to remember is that you can guarantee yourself a risk-free wager. Sign up with Caesars to start winning with no stress tonight.
