Pacers vs. Wizards: Odds, lines, picks and betting tips
Pacers 116, Washington 108
The Pacers (-334) open this contest as big moneyline favorites over the Wizards (+260) and it's not hard to see why. Washington is arguably the worst team in the NBA bubble and they have already lost their two previous games in Orlando by a combined 21 points. Meanwhile, Indiana had an impressive 127-121 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday.
While the Pacers should easily win this game, there isn't enough value here on the moneyline to pick Indiana. PASS on the moneyline in favor of the point spread.
Line/Against the Spread (ATS)
The PACERS -7.5 (-110) are three-basket favorites over the Wizards Monday afternoon. Indiana has fared well against the spread of late, despite not always having Oladipo in the lineup. They've failed to cover only once in their last six games and are 34-28-4 against the spread this season.
Washington just doesn't have the talent to hang with Indiana for very long and will have trouble scoring more than 110 points in this contest. Take INDIANA -7.5 (-110) to win by at least 8 points with confidence in this game.
The total for this Eastern Conference matchup is set at 227.5. The Pacers rank fourth in points per game allowed this season (107.6) and the Wizards' offense is relying on too many young and inexperienced players.
Look for the UNDER 227.5 (-110) to hit as the Pacers' defense should hold the young Wizards under 110 points.
