Game: Washington Wizards at Indiana Pacers Mar 29 2012 7:05PM
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: At 7:00 PM EST on Thursday, we will be playing Under the Total in the game between the Washington Wizards and the Indiana Pacers. Washington (11-38) has lost four straight games -- as well as six of their last seven -- after their 79-77 loss to Detroit on Monday. The Wizards have played 6 straight games Under the Total following a loss. While Washington has struggled this season, head coach Randy Wittman is pleased with the progress of his team's play on the defensive end of the court. Over their last five games, the Wizards have held these five opponents to just an 87.2 PPG average on low 42.4% shooting from the field. Said Wittman: "We're so much better on defense than we've been all year … Our defense has been a strong point for us." Washington goes on the road here where they have played 5 straight games Under the Total away from home. The Wizards have also played 7 straight games Under the Total against Eastern Conference opponents.
Indiana (29-20) looks to rebound from their 100-84 loss in New York to the Knicks last night. The Pacers should play better on the defensive end of the court tonight as they have played 6 of their last 8 games Under the Total following a double-digit loss. Indiana has also seen the Under go 10-3-1 in their last 14 games after allowing at least 100 points. The Wizards are just 5-19 on the road this season -- and the Pacers have played 5 of their last 7 home games Under the Total against teams with a winning percentage below 40% on the road. Together, these team trends produce our specific 39-7-1 combined angle for this situation. Lastly, the Under is supported by an empirical angle that has been 69% effective over the last five seasons. In games with the Total set in the 190-199.5 range in the second half of the season, when one team (Washington) comes off a loss at home by three points or less, these games then finished Under the Total in 42 of the last 61 situations where these conditions applied. 25* NBA Eastern Conference Total of the Month with Under the Total in the game between the Under the Total in the game between the Washington Wizards and the Indiana Pacers. Best of luck for us -- Frank.
