NBA Predictions: Will Beal, Wizards top host Pacers? 2/5/18

Are the visiting Washington Wizards a smart play for bettors tonight at 7PM ET when they take on the Indiana Pacers?

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Monday afternoon, 58 percent of public bets have come in on the Pacers.

Injury Report: Wizards forward Mike Scott missed the last game with an illness and is questionable for tonight. John Wall is out until late March as he recovers from knee surgery. Sheldon Mac is out for the season with a torn Achilles. For the Pacers, Myles Turner is dealing with a knee injury and questionable for tonight. Glenn Robinson III is out until mid-February with an ankle injury.

Who the Trends Like: Washington is 8-0 ATS in its last eight meetings in Indiana. The over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings and 4-1 in the last five meetings in Indiana.

Who We Like: The Wizards have dominated the series when games have been played in Indiana. This spread is low as it seems oddsmakers understand Washington always seems to play well in this spot. Despite the absence of Wall, the Wizards have won four in a row with Bradley Beal and Otto Porter Jr. leading the charge. With Turner's questionable status also a factor, I like Washington to get the job done here as a small underdog.
