Free Indiana Pacers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
These two teams look very similar on paper, but what the numbers don’t show is the nasty funk Indiana is in right now.
Both the Pacers and Wizards are able to put up triple digits scoring a game but they also are giving up a higher average then they score.
I like the Wizards in this one simply because they are playing at home, but I don’t think they will do enough to cover the spread.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Indiana +5.
I am going with the underdog.
