Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 15, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Toronto opened as the 4-point favorite it is now, while the total has come down a point from 214.5. Everywhere I look the spread is at -4 with the total at 213.5, but still shop around to see if anything has moved.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Raptors. Online wager info also shows that 62 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Toronto small forward OG Anunoby (ankle) iand fellow small forward Norman Powell (ankle) are both doubtful to play tonight. For Indiana, power forward Trevor Booker (ankle) is questionable while power forward Domantas Sabonis (ankle) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Raptors are a very solid 22-12 straight up on the road, while the Pacers enter at 23-12 at home. Indiana won 107-104 the last time these two squads met with the Pacers as the home team back in November. In the second meeting at Toronto, the Raptors won 120-115 on Dec. 1 but again Indiana covered the spread. The Pacers seem to match up well and this spread feels a bit like a trap. I'm going to say Indiana gets it done on its home court.
