Bet NBA Action For Saturday, March 3, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Portland opened as a 3.5-point favorite before the line slid up a point, while the total has gone up after opening at 213. The site can be found at either -4 or -4.5 at most books, although it is as high as -5.5. The total is at 215 or 215.5 depending where you look.

PUBLIC BETTING 

As of Saturday afternoon, 52 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Thunder. Online wager info also shows that 75 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Andre Roberson is the only Thunder player on their injury report and he is done for the season after suffering a ruptured patellar tendon in late January. For the Blazers, Maurice Harkless is doubtful after suffering a strained patellar tendon in the last game.

BETTING STRATEGY

Portland has won four consecutive straight up meetings and covered the spread each time as well. Look for the Trail Blazers to continue that streak here as the Thunder are on a back-to-back following a 124-116 victory at the Suns last night. While Russell Westbrook had a huge night against Phoenix, expect the going to be a lot tougher here against a much better defensive team and a squad he's struggled agianst lately. Portland has won five in a row and I expect it to become a six-game winning streak here.
