The Washington Wizards play host to the Indiana Pacers at the Capital One Arena on Saturday (February 11) in NBA Regular Season action. The betting odds and previews are given below:
The two sides are quite close in the standings as the Pacers are 12th while the Wizards are 10th. The sides are however tied on wins with 25 a-piece as they lock horns tonight. Indiana haven’t been in the best of form, losing all of their last three games, and dropping down to a 25-32 record. For the longest time, the Pacers looked certain to make the playoffs, after a sensational start to the season and the chemistry on show between Buddy Hield, Myles Turner and All-Star Tyrese Haliburton.
Haliburton has been instrumental in his side’s success, racking up over 10 assists a night which is the second-best tally in the NBA. Without Haliburton in the side, the Pacers have gone 2-10 this season.
The Wizards have had a very mixed last 10 games. They began the stretch with an amazing six-game win streak and followed it up with three successive losses. They did however win their last game against the Charlotte Hornets, taking their record to 25-29.

Pacers vs. Wizards Betting Prediction
The Wizards are in much better form as compared to the Pacers. The Pacers have been stuck in a rut for a long time now and their over-dependence on Haliburton is very obvious. If Washington can keep tabs on him for a large part of the game, they will have the better chance of winning this game.
