Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 7, 2018


New Orleans opened at the 5.5-point mark it is at now, while the total has gone up slightly after opening at 223.5. Offshore sportsbooks have the Pelicans as at -5.5, while in Las Vegas the spread can be found at -5. The total is set at either 223.5 or 224 depending where you look.


As of Wednesday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Pelicans. Online wager info also shows that 55 percent of bets are being placed on the over.


Pelicans small forward Solomon Hill is out until mid-March as he recovers from a hamstring injury. For the Kings, Willie Cauley-Stein will be out again with a back strain. Skal Labissiere is questionable with a sore right knee.


New Orleans had a grueling fast-paced game last night where it had to put forth a ton of effort in order to earn a 121-116 victory at the Clippers. It was the ninth win in a row for the Pelicans and they have covered the spread in eight of the contests. Tonight is a classic letdown opportunity with a fatigued New Orleans squad taking on a Kings squad that has remained at home with two full days of rest. We all know the Pelicans are the better team here and Cauley-Stein being out won't help matters, but the circumstances say this will be a prime opportunity for Sacrament to cover the spread and maybe even pull off the straight up upset. Keep in mind that the Kings are already 2-0 versus New Orleans this season, winning 116-109 in overtime on Dec. 8 and 114-103 on Jan. 30. Both of those games were played in New Orleans. Can Sacramento make it 3-0 tonight? It's very possible.
