Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Chicago opened as a 3-point favorite, while the total has jumped after opening at 206.5. The spread is either -3 or -3.5 depending on the sportsbook, while the total is either 210.5 or 211. At Las Vegas books, the total can be found at 207.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets are siding with the Bulls. Online wager info also states that 65 percent of bets are pouring in on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

The Grizzlies have had a slew of injuries all season and there are many that impact this game. Jarell Martin missed the last game with a knee injury and is questionable tonight. Tyreke Evans is out indefinitely with a rib injury, while Andrew Harrison is out until mid-March with a wrist injury. Mario Chalmers is also out until mid-March after injuring his hamstring. On a more positive note, guard Ben McLemore is expected to play after missing the last game due to a personal matter. For the Bulls, small forward Paul Zipser (foot) has missed the last five games and is questionable tonight.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Grizzlies are without so many key parts it is hard to trust them against any opponent, even the Bulls. And although Chicago was throttled 105-89 at home by the Celtics in their last game, they have been competitive in plenty of games this season and hold a 32-30-1 ATS record. The Bulls are also 14-18 straight up at home. I like the starting lineup changes that have been employed lately in going small with Lauri Markkanen starting at power forward and Bobby Portis at center. It might be a nice counter against the size difference and strong interior presence Marc Gasol gives Memphis. I like the Bulls to get the win and cover the spread in this spot.
