Bet NBA Action For Tuesday, March 20, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Detroit opened as a 6-point favorite, while the total has risen from 215 points. The spread is currently at -6.5 at all offshore books, while it can be found at -6 at certain Las Vegas books. The total is at 216.5 or 217 at most books, with YouWager one of the exceptions. If you want to bet the under, YouWager is your best book.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 66 percent of public bets are being placed on the visiting Pistons. Online wager info also states that 52 percent of bets are coming in on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable after missing the last few months. Power forward Jon Leuer (ankle) is out for the season. For the Suns, power forward Alan Williams (knee) and shooting guard Devin Booker (hand) are both questionable. Center Tyson Chandler (shoulder) and small forward TJ Warren (knee) are both doubtful. 

BETTING STRATEGY

Detroit is on a back-to-back after defeating the host Kings 106-90 last night, which ended a three-game losing streak. I'd take the Suns here without hesitation against a Pistons team that has struggled mightily since the All-Star Break, but with Booker and Warren possibly not playing it will make life easier for the visitors. Phoenix is already a bad basketball team and without two of its top playmakers, this could have the makings of a blowout as Detroit is squarely in desperation mode. But an even smarter play might be the over. We all know that the Suns play very little defense, but the Pistons have played at a faster tempo since acquiring Blake Griffin and have been worse defensively. Detroit will also have tired legs on defense because of the back-to-back
