Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 14, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Miami opened as a 6.5-point favorite before the line bumped up, while the total has risen a point from 207.5. The spread is set at -7 most places, but it can be found at -6.5 if you should around. The total is set at 207 or 207.5 at most books, so if you are interested in betting the under YouWager is currently your best choice.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 71 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Heat. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are siding with the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Miami shooting guard Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will miss a second straight game, while center Hassan Whiteside (hip) is out for a third straight contest. For Sacramento, power forward Skal Labissiere (hip) is questionable. Shooting guard Iman Shumpert (foot) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

These two squads are among the slowest-paced in the NBA and although Whiteside being out downgrades the Heat defense, they also get the benefit of facing a subpar Kings offense. When these two teams met in January in Miami, Sacramento snuck away with an 89-88 victory. Miami hasn't scored more than 102 points in any of its last three games and now it faces a Sacramento squad that isn't as good defensively, but also plays slow and is poor on offense. The under appears to be a strong play here.
