Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 15, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread has remained at -11.5 in favor of the hosts, while the total has gone down slightly from 224.5. The spread seems to be at -11.5 basically everywhere, while the total can be found at 224 or 224.5 depending on which side of the over-under you want to bet.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 62 percent of public bets have come in on the Rockets. Online wager info also shows that 72 percent of bets are pouring in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Clippers shooting guard Avery Bradley (hernia) is out until early May, while small forward Danilo Gallinari (hand) is out until late March. For the Rockets, center Clint Capela (thumb) and point guad Chris Paul (knee) are probable. Power forward Ryan Anderson (hip flexor) is out, while power forwad Brandan Wright (knee) is out until late March.

BETTING STRATEGY

After the host Clippers ruffled the Rockets' feathers a bit in a 113-102 victory by LA on Jan. 15, Houston was focused on its home floor in the last meeting as it rolled to a 105-92 win on Feb. 28 in a game that was lopsided quickly. I don't think the Rockets are done laying the wood to the Clippers and I fully expect a blowout here. Maybe it doesn't happen, but there are worse teams to bet on to win decisively than powerful Houston. Keep an eye on the statuses of Capela and Paul as tip-off nears.
