Bet NBA Action For Friday, March 16, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Golden State opened as a 12-point favorite before the line dropped, while the total has also dropped a lot after opening at 214 points. The Warriors are a 9.5-point favorite almost everywhere, but the spread can be found at -10. The total is 209.5 at most books, but is also at 210.5 at some books.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Friday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Kings. Online wager info also shows that 72 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Kings power forward Skal Labissiere (hip) is questionable, while shooting guard Iman Shumpert (foot) is out indefinitely. For the Warriors, Kevin Durant (ribs) has been added to the long injury list as he is questionable. David West (arm cyst), Draymond Green (shoulder), Andre Iguodala (wrist) and Jordan Bell (ankle) are all listed as probable. Steph Curry (ankle), Klay Thompson (wrist) and Patrick McCaw (wrist) are all out until late March.

BETTING STRATEGY

With so much offensive firepower out, I'd imagine the Warriors play at a slower pace and try to rely on such of their better defensive players such as Green and Iguodala to pick up the slack. The Kings are not good defensively, but they also struggle on offense and play at a slow pace. The total has dropped for a reason. Try and bet it before it goes down any more.
