The Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Capital One Arena.

Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 16 points and 4.1 rebounds while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 14.7 points and 9.4 rebounds. Myles Turner is the third double-digit scorer and Thaddeus Young is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.7 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have won five of their last eight road games.
The Washington Wizards look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Washington Wizards are averaging 112.8 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 115.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 24.6 points and 5.1 rebounds while Trevor Ariza is averaging 15.2 points and 4.3 assists. Otto Porter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Markieff Morris is grabbing 5.1 rebounds.

The Pacers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southeast, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Wizards are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Pacers are 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Washington and the road team is 23-8 ATS in the last 31 meetings. The over is 37-17-1 in Wizards last 55 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 11-4 in Pacers last 15 overall.
The Washington Wizards are coming off a terrible loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they've been much better at home where they've won five of their last seven and are winning by an average of nearly four points per game. The Indiana Pacers are 0-2 SU since the injury to Victor Oladipo, which includes a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies and a 32-point beatdown to the Golden State Warriors. In a pick em game, I'll give the edge to the Wizards because they're at home. I need to see the Pacers regroup without their star player before I can put any trust in them right now.
