Bet NBA Action For Tuesday, March 13, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread remains at the -2 with Denver favored where it opened, while the total has dropped from 232 points. The Nuggets are a 2-point favorite almost everywhere, although they can be found at -1.5. The total can be bet on at anywhere from 230 to 231 if you shop around.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 58 percent of bets are being placed on the Lakers. Online wager info also states that 61 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Denver power forward Tyler Lydon (knee) is out indefinitely. For the Lakers, Brandon Ingram (hip flexor strain) and Channing Frye (appendix) are out until late March. 

BETTING STRATEGY

These two squads played Friday night in Denver with the Nuggets coming away with a 125-116 victory. Expect a different result this time around. Not only is it difficult to beat a team twice in such a short period of time, but the young Lakers have grown in confidence a ton over the course of the season and have won seven of their last 10 games straight up. Los Angeles is 17-15 straight up at home this season, while Denver is only 11-20 on the road. In my opinion, the wrong team is favored here. But that's why they play the game.
