Bet NBA Action For Saturday, March 17, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

San Antonio opened as a 4.5-point favorite, while the total has gone down after opening at 211.5. The spread is at -4 everywhere, while the total is 212 at most books and can be found all the way down to 210.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 57 percent of public bets are siding with the Spurs. Online wager info also states that 61 percent of bets are coming in on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Timberwolves point guard Aaron Brooks (personal matter) is questionable tonight, while shooting guard Jimmy Butler (knee) is out until early April. For the Spurs, small forward Danny Green (face) is probable to play tonight. Point guard Dejounte Murray (ankle) is questionable, while small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) has been ruled out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The two meetings are split this season with each team winning and covering on their home floor. Minnesota enters with two wins in a row, downing Golden State at home 108-103 and Washington on the road by a count of 116-111. As for San Antonio, it has also won two in a row at home over Orlando (108-72) and New Orleans (98-93). Prior to the last couple games, the Spurs were in a big funk and now Murray could be out tonight. I like the duo of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins to be effective tonight against a Spurs team that is plenty flawed this season.
