Bet NBA Action For Friday, March 2, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Los Angeles opened as an 8-point favorite before the hook was added. The total has remained at 226.5. The Clippers can be found as a 9-point favorite at certain books, while under bettors can also find the total at 226.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Friday afternoon, 53 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting Knicks. Online wager info also states that 59 percent of bets are siding with the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

New York has three players out for the season - Joakim Noah (mutual agreement), Kristaps Porzingis (torn ACL) and Ron Baker (shoulder). For the Clippers, Danilo Gallinari has missed the last three games with a bruised hand and will be out again tonight.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Knicks have lost 10 of their last 11 games including the last two at home versus the Celtics (121-112) and the Warriors (125-111). They haven't been playing a lot of defense with the over hitting four straight times. The Clippers have won four of their last six with the over hitting four times. The total is high here, but both of these teams are clearly much more focused on scoring points than stopping them. The first meeting was a 107-95 victory by New York all the back on Nov. 20. Don't look too much into that score as these two teams are decidedly different-looking now.
