Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Toronto opened as a 5-point favorite before the line moved up half a point, while the total has dropped after opening at 215. The Raptors are a 5.5-point favorite everywhere you look, while the total can be found at 213.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 72 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting Raptors. Online wager info also shows that 60 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Toronto has three players questionable - small forward OG Anunoby (ankle), Nigel Hayes (visa issues) and Delon Wright (sprained toe) For Detroit, Stanley Johnson (back) and Luke Kennard (stomach aches) are both questionable.

BETTING STRATEGY

Toronto has won both games in the series this season by scores of 96-91 and 123-94, but both of those games were hosted by the Raptors. Detroit is a much better team at home this season as proven by its 20-13 straight up home mark compared to 9-22 on the road. Toronto sometimes appears unbeatable at home with its 27-5 record, but looks a lot more human in road games with a 19-12 mark. I like Detroit here as they have had a day to prepare, while the Raptors will be fatigued after beating the Hawks 106-90 last night and then traveling.
