Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 22, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Houston is still at the 12.5-point favorite where it opened, while the total has gone down after opening at 214.5. The Rockets are a 12.5-point fave nearly everywhere, but can be found at -13. The total is 213 at most books, but is also available at 213.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets are siding with Houston. Online wager info also shows that 64 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Detroit power forward Jon Leuer (ankle) is out for the season. For the Rockets, point guard Chris Paul (hamstring) is questionable. Power forward Brandan Wright (knee) is out until early April.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pistons have had four of their last five games stay under the total, but three of those contests that went under were against slow-paced teams and the other was versus a terrible Suns squad. Houston has the most efficient offense in the NBA and Detroit hasn't played much defense since the All-Star Break. The Pistons should be able to score enough here, but getting stops will be a major problem. Take the over.
