Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 28, 2018


Utah opened as a 6.5-point favorite before the line bumped up a couple points, while the total has dropped a point from 195.5. The spread has settled at -8.5 basically everywhere, while the total can be found at 194 or 194.5.


As of Wednesday afternoon, 54 percent of public bets are being placed on the Jazz. Online wager info also shows that 54 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Celtics power forward Al Horford (ankle) is questionable to play. Power forward Marcus Morris (ankle) is out tonight. Point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) is out until early May, while point guard Marcus Smart (thumb) is out until mid-May. Power forward Daniel Theis (knee) and small forward Gordon Hayward (leg) are out for the season. For the Jazz, center Tony Bradley (brain injury) is probable. Point guard Raul Neto (wrist) is out until early April. Small forward Thabo Sefolosha (knee) is out for the season.


Center Rudy Gobert is making a push for the Defensive Player of the Year award for the Jazz as he is the catalyst for keeping the opposition's point total down. With Irving and several other key pieces possibly out for Boston, this is not an ideal situation. The Celtics' defense should keep them in this game and the score low, but ultimately Utah should be able to take care of business. Take the under here on the assumption that both teams will play their style of basketball.
