Bet NBA Action For Saturday, March 3, 2017

LINE MOVEMENT

Miami opened as a 6.5-point favorite before the line dropped by a point, while the total has gone down from 207. The spread appears to be settled at -5.5 for now at basically every book, while the total can be found anywhere from a low of 204 to a high at one book of 205.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday morning, 67 percent of public bets are pouring in on the Heat. Online wager info also states that 79 percent percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Pistons backup point guard Langston Galloway is dealing with a head injury but is expected to play tonight. For the Heat, Wayne Ellington and Tyler Johnson are both doubtful to play as they are dealing with quadriceps injuries.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pistons are coming off a 115-106 overtime loss at Orlando last night. On the season, Detroit is a dreadful 9-20 on the road. The Pistons have won two of the three meetings this season, but those were both on their home court. In the one game at Miami, it was the Heat who prevailed 111-104. Look for Miami to take advantage of a more fatigued Pistons squad and even the season series at two games apiece.
