Two teams sitting in and out of the playoff places of the East are clashing today, when the Washington Wizards (24-35), looking to end their current losing streak, are hosting the Indiana Pacers (39-20), who have been faring unexpectedly well without Victor Oladipo and have lost only once in their last 8 games.
Date/Time: 02-23-2019, 19:00 EDT
Spread: Washington Wizards 0
Washington Wizards have a 24-35 record (26-33 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. They have three consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Hornets with a 110-123 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.5 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by John Wall with 20.7 ppg and a team high 8.7 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury.
Indiana Pacers have a 39-20 record (31-28 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third place of the East. They have won seven of their last eight matches and in their last game they won at home against the Pelicans with a 126-111 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Victor Oladipo with 18.8 ppg, adding 5.6 boards and 5.2 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury. He is followed by Bojan Bogdanovic with 16.8 ppg and 4 boards per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Pacers lead the Wizards 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Wizards have a 16-11 home record, while the Pacers are 16-12 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 113.8 ppg to Pacers’ 108.4, while Pacers are better defensively, allowing 103 ppg to Wizards’ 117. Pacers have better percentages both in field goals (47.8% to 46.9%) and in 3-pointers (37.3% to 34.6%). Both teams are almost equal both in turnovers committed (13.4 to 13.7) and in dimes made (26.5 to 26.1), while Pacers are better in boards grabbed (43.4 to 40.9). Pacers have been playing much better and Vegas odds give a 0 spread for this game and expect the guests to beat the odds today.
