Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 21, 2018


Cleveland opened as a 1.5-point favorite before the spread bumped up half a point, while the total has come down from 227.5. The Cavaliers are either at -1.5 or -2 depending on the sportsbook, while the total is at 226 most books but can also be found at 226.5.


As of Wednesday afternoon, 58 percent of public bets have come in on Cleveland. Online wager info also shows that 52 percent of bets are being placed on the over.


Point guard Fred VanVleet (wrist) and DeMar DeRozan (thigh) both sat out last game and are questionable for tonight. For the Cavaliers, three players are questionable - Tristan Thompson (ankle), shooting guard Rodney Hood (back) and small forward Cedi Osman (hip). Power forward Larry Nance Jr. (hamstring) and shooting guard Kyle Korver (personal) are both out.


Toronto played last night and did not exactly have an easy time in a 93-86 win at the Magic with DeRozan and VanVleet sitting. If DeRozan doesn't play again today, that would be a major absence against the high-powered Cavs. This should be a high-scoring and entertaining game. Look for LeBron James to have a monster game as he so often does against top opponents. He's in great form right now and should be able to lead Cleveland to victory over the fatigued Raptors.
