Bet on the NBABoth the Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers have made some good moves leading up to the trade deadline.
Both teams are on a winning run with Pacers looking for a fourth win on the road over the Washington Wizards.
Jeff Foster has retired and Indiana is surely going to miss him. But Leandro Barbosa is not a bad replacement and was quite good in his first match against the Los Angeles Clippers. For the Wizards, the addition of Nene has done wonders. In his first game, he scored 22 points, ensuring the Wizards did not lose three matches in a row. In the offense, he is going to be quite pivotal for the Wizards.
Statistics wise, the Wizards have only won consecutive matches just one time this season and that is not a good sign if you are interested in backing them in the basketball odds market. Getting involved in handicap market with start of five to six points can be a wise move.
One look at the sportsbook market of match odds and you will get an idea of how big a task it is for the Wizards to win this game. On an expected note, Indiana is a strong favorite at 1.39 while the Wizards are available at 3.4. If you think that Nene is going to motivate the Wizards and they are going to win consecutive games once again finally, this is the right time to back them, especially at such good odds.
Another market that you can focus on is the total match points market. At this point of time, you can back under 199.5 points at 2.0 while the over 199.5 points is available at 1.9. Under is the way to go here especially with both teams struggling and offensively not that good. If you are not sure, playing in-play may be the best option. In the player head to head market, you can back Danny Granger at 1.90 against John Wall.
