Bet NBA Action For Tuesday, March 20, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Oklahoma City opened as a 4-point favorite before the line was bumped up slightly, while the total has also risen a bit from 208.5. The Thunder are at -4.5 at most books, but can be found as a 5-point favorite. The total is about a 50/50 split at either 208.5 or 209 points.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 83 percent of public bets are being placed on the visiting Thunder. Online wager info also says that 51 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

The Thunder have a clean bill of health aside from shooting guard Andre Roberson (ruptured patellar tendon), who was lost for the season in late January. For the Celtics, Kyrie Irving (knee) has been ruled out. Marcus Smart (thumb) is out indefinitely. Jaylen Brown (brain injury) is out until late March, while Daniel Theis (knee) and Gordon Hayward (leg) are expected to be out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

Boston has lost three of its last four games with Irving out of the lineup. Meanwhile, the red-hot Thunder are a less than ideal matchup. With OKC being healthy and Corey Brewer providing great defense and a satisfactory extra scoring option since moving into the starting lineup, it's hard to see them dropping this game against a depleted Celtics squad. Try to catch the line at -4.5.
