The Washington Wizards enter this game as they enter most of their contests, in search of an identity as a basketball team. For all of the update odds on the NBA 24 hours a day please visit Just Bet sportsbook.
The Indiana Pacers on the other hand have had a very solid season and sit wit a record of 29-20. The one downside for the Pacers is that they are in the same division as the Bulls who are one of the best teams in the league. The Bulls currently lead the Pacers by 10.5 games in the Central Division. Indiana features a stellar defensive team and they are seventh in the league as far as points against per game average. If there is one weakness it is that they do not have the same offensive ability as the teams above them in the standings do.
The Wizards find themselves at the bottom of the division standings and if it wasn’t for the Charlotte Bobcats they would stand alone as a laughing stock. They trail the Heat in the Southeast Division by an eye-popping 24.5 games. As you can probably figure the Wizards are near the bottom in defense and offense in terms of stats. They are the 24th ranked team offensively and rank 27th in scoring defense.
The Pacers are 4-2 at home lately in their last 6 games overall. Despite having that stingy defense the total has gone over in four of their last five games heading into Thursday.
Although the number is pretty big we still see the Pacers being able to handle the Wizards. With that said, we think the under is more attractive here because we do not see the Wizards putting up the points necessary to keep up with the Pacers. Before betting the under read sportsbook reviews.
