Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, March 27, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread has done a complete flip as the Magic opened as a 3-point favorite before it shifted to Brooklyn favored at -3. The total has dropped from 218. The spread has settled at most books with the Nets as a 3-point favorite, but it can be found at -2.5. The total is 216.5 almost everywhere, but can be bet at 216.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 71 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Nets. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Brooklyn point guard Jeremy Lin (patellar tendon) was ruled out for the season after getting injured in October. For Orlando, Jonathon Simmons (wrist) and Jonathan Isaac (foot) are both out tonight. Shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee) is out until early April. Shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) is out until early April.

BETTING STRATEGY

The last time these two teams met, they stayed tame in a 98-95 home win for the Nets on New Year's Day. But the first two meetings this season saw totals of 247 and 246 points respectively as each team won on its home floor. The Nets have played overs in five of their last six games, while Orlando is capable of getting into a shootout with the right opponent as shown versus Brooklyn twice already this season.
