Indiana 115 @ Washington 142 | 05/21 | 12:00 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: Sometimes I am asked why I pick the moneyline often on NBA favorites instead of spreads. See Wednesday's West two games for the reason why -- I would have pushed and lost backing the favorites on the spread but instead went 2-0 on the ML. Home teams are 4-0 in these play-in games SU. Wizards star Bradley Beal isn't 100 percent, but the Pacers have a handful of banged-up guys and no Caris LeVert. Washington is also unbeaten ATS in its past eight following a loss. I'm still going moneyline, though. A lot of people are overreacting to Indiana's blowout of a slumping Charlotte team on Tuesday.
