Will the Indiana Pacers and host Washington Wizards play a low-scoring, defensive contest tonight when they meet at 6PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Wizards are listed as a 4-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 209.5 points. 

Bet NBA Action For Sunday, March 4, 2018


Washington opened as a 4.5-point favorite, while the total has come down after opening at 212. The spread can be found at -4 at pretty much every book, while the total is either at 209 or 209.5 depending where you look.


As of Sunday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets have come in on the Wizards. Online wager info also shows that 60 percent of bets are being placed on the over.


Pacers point guard Darren Collison has missed the last several weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery and is nearing a return but is ruled out for today. For the Wizards, center Jason Smith is out indefinitely with an illness. John Wall (knee) is not expected back until late March.


Indiana is 35-26-1 on unders this season, while Washington is 35-27-1 on unders. It's clear that oddsmakers have not corrected the fact that these two squads are pretty solid defensively. The Pacers are by far weakest against opposing centers and the Wizards don't have a real offensive threat there in Marcin Gortat. Indiana should be able to slow down the perimeter players fairly well, at least enough to keep the total under. The previous meeting this season was a 111-102 win by Washington at Indiana, but I see this contest being a bit lower-scoring.
