Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 7, 2018


The spread was at -6 in Houston's favor when it opened, while the total has gone up after opening at 214.5. The spread is almost exclusively at -6, but can be found at -6.5 if you shop around. The total is anywhere from 215.5 to 217 depending where you look.


As of Wednesday afternoon, 71 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting red-hot Rockets. Online wager info also shows that 71 percent of bets are siding with the over.


Houston power forward Ryan Anderson is doubtful to play tonight with a hip flexor injury. Brandan Wright (knee soreness) and Joe Johnson (illness) are both questionable. For the Bucks, center Tyler Zeller missed the last game with hip and back soreness. He is questionable for tonight.


Despite being heavily favored so often this season, the Rockets have still managed to go 33-29-1 ATS which shows how often they are dismantling their opponents. Not only are the Rockets dominating at home with a 25-6 straight up record, but they are basically just as good on the road at 25-7. But the Bucks, to their credit, played Houston extremely tough early this season during another of the Rockets' long win streaks. In the game hosted by the Rockets, Milwaukee lost by a slim 115-111 score. Could the home-court advantage push Milwaukee over the top this time? I don't have a definitive answer for that, but I think there is a lot of logic in taking the Bucks here with the points. Maybe Houston does win, but I'm going to say this contest goes down to the wire and Milwaukee covers the six points. Some teams just match up well and I believe the Bucks fit that bill here.
