Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 8, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Oklahoma City opened as an 11-point favorite before the line dropped a point, while the total has gone up after opening at 226.5. The spread can still be found at -10.5, while the total is anywhere from 228.5 to 229.5 depending on the sportsbook.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 64 percent of public bets are siding with the Thunder. Online wager info also shows that 53 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Suns shooting guard Troy Daniels missed the last game with a hyperextended knee, but is expected to return tonight. Point guard Tyler Ulis is out indefinitely with a back injury. For the Thunder, the only injury on its report is Andre Roberson as he is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon.

BETTING STRATEGY

Say what you will about the Suns, but they seem to always play the Thunder tough. Phoenix had its three-game straight up and ATS win streak snapped in the last meeting, but was still in it until late in a 124-116 home loss to OKC on March 2. With the Thunder so often playing down to their competition, I like the Suns to stay within the number tonight. The Thunder have not defeated an opponent by double digits in nearly a month.
