Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 15, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Charlotte opened as a 4.5-point favorite, while the total sits at 220 points. The spread is set at -5 at most books, but can be found at -4.5 if you shop around. The total can be found anywhere from 219 to 220 points.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 77 percent of public bets are being placed on the visiting Hornets. Online wager info also says that 60 percent of bets are coming in on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Charlotte small forward Jeremy Lamb (back) is questionable, while center Cody Zeller (knee) is doubtful. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder) is out for the season. For Atlanta, point guard Malcolm Delaney (ankle) has been ruled out. Shooting guard Kent Bazemore (knee) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

The last two meetings between these squads have flown over the total with a 121-110 home win by the Hornets on Jan. 26 and a 123-110 victory by Charlotte in Atlanta five days later. Neither team has anything to play for right now except draft position, so don't expect much defense in this contest.
