Bet NBA Action For Saturday, March 24, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Orlando opened as a 4-point favorite before the spread grew, while the total has gone up slightly from 216.5. The Magic are a 6.5-point fave at most books, but can be found at -7. The total has a range between 217 and 218 points depending where you look.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets are pouring in on the Magic. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are being played on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Phoenix power forward Alan Williams (knee) and shooting guard Devin Booker (hand) are both questionable to play tonight. Small forward TJ Warren (knee) is doubtful, while center Tyson Chandler (neck) is out indefinitely. For the Magic, small forward Jonathon Simmons (wrist) and power forward Jonathan Isaac (foot) are both doubtful. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee) is out until early April, while shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) is out until early April.

BETTING STRATEGY

This is an NBA game that is made for betting. Why else would you want to watch these two teams trying to tank as hard as they can? The Suns have exercised caution with Booker and basically everyone on their roster worth anything who has gotten injured this season. Same goes for the Magic. They can act like they are trying to be competitive, but we can all see through it. Anyway, don't expect a lot of defense in this contest. Booker returning would be a huge boost for the over, but even so these two squads will play fast and open. Look for the over to hit, just like it did wihen Orlando won 128-112 in Phoenix back in November.
