Bet NBA Action For Tuesday, March 13, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Cleveland opened as a 7-point favorite and the total was at 230 points befure both lines moved up slightly. The spread is at -7.5 basically everywhere now, while the total is actually at 230 at most places while YouWager has it slightly higher.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 77 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Cavaliers. Online wager info also says that exactly 50 percent of bets are on the over and the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Cavaliers small forward Cedi Osman (hip) is questionable to play. Rodney Hood (back) is doubtful. Tristan Thompson (ankle) and Kevin Love (hand) are both out until late March. The Suns' TJ Warren (back spasms), Josh Jackson (knee) and Devin Booker (strained triceps) are all probable to play. Alan Williams (knee) is questionable to make his season debut.

BETTING STRATEGY

Neither of these two teams play marginal defense, with the Cavs' D getting marginally better after their deadline trades. Phoenix has allowed at least 122 points in five of its last 10 games, while the Cavs' defense has been decimated their last two losses at the Nuggets and Clippers. My money is on both of these teams filling it up early and often, especially with the Suns getting all their offensive firepower back for this game.
