Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 21, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

San Antonio opened as a 5-point favorite, while the total started at 203.5 points. The spread is at -6 at most sportsbooks, but can be found at -5.5. The total is at 202 almost everywhere, but can be bet at 201.5 through at least one book.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 57 percent of publc bets are siding with the Spurs. Online wager info also shows that 54 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

There is one prominent player out for each team - Wizards point guard John Wall (knee) is out until late this month, while Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) will remain out.

BETTING STRATEGY

San Antonio, despite its struggles at times this season, are an excellent 27-8 straight up at home and 37-32-2 overall ATS. The Wizards are 20-15 straight up both at home and on the road. Washington enters on a two-game winning streak, while the Spurs have won four in a row. I trust San Antonio in its home building and it has looked sharp lately. This could be a blowout if the Wizards can't make outside shots early. Take the hosts.
