NBA FREE PICK: Take the Pacers over the Wizards. According to the NBA trends, the Wizards are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, 3-9 ATS in their last 12 Monday games and are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
Both teams are offensively-challenged this year. Washington is looking for their first win of the season against a struggling Pacers team. The good news for Indiana is that Washington is having a worse time, especially when they go through a long drought. Indiana has walked away with a victory in the last seven meetings with Washington. Mired in their second consecutive 0-8 start to a season, the shorthanded Wizards mustered just 13 points in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 83-76 setback to Utah. Paul George and Tyler Hansbrough lead the way for the Pacers against a short-handed Wizards team that has played their first 8 games without John Wall and Nene.
