LINE MOVEMENT

Washington opened as a 3.5-point home favorite ahead of tonight's game against Indiana and the line sits at either 3.5 or 4 online as of this writing. As for the total, the number has not budged after hitting the board at 209.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 55% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pacers to cover the point spread this evening. Meanwhile, 59% of the betting tickets are on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

The Pacers might not have Myles Turner tonight, as he's questionable with an ankle injury. On the other side, the Wizards remain without John Wall, who is out with a knee injury.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pacers have played well of late, winning six of their last 10 games and also cashing six times over that span. They've also won six of their last eight games but are coming off a loss in which they blew a halftime lead in a 106-99 defeat at the hands of the Raptors. I like them to bounce back tonight against a Wizards team that is depleted. The road team has won each of the first two meetings in this series and the Pacers are on a nice 9-1 ATS run in their last 10 games in Washington.
