Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 29, 2018


Miami opened as the 13-point favorite it is now, while the total has dropped a point from 209.5. The Heat are -13 at most books, but can also be found at -13.5. The total can be bet at 209 and 209.5 depending on the book, so make sure to shop around.


As of Thursday afternoon, 78 percent of public bets are siding with the Heat. Online wager info also states that 61 percent of bets are being placed on the under.


Small forward Denzel Valentine (knee) and power forward Lauri Markkanen (arm) are both listed as probable for the Bulls. Center Cristiano Felicio (back) is doubtful. Small forward Paul Zipser (foot) is out tonight, while point guard Kris Dunn (toe) is out indefinitely. Shooting guard Antonio Blakeney (wrist) is out for the season. Point guard Zach LaVine (knee) is out until early April. For the Heat, center Hassan Whiteside (hip) is probable. Center Bam Adebayo (ankle) is doubtful. Shooting guard Dion Waiters (ankle) is out for the season.


The Bulls are decimated by injuries and havelost their last five games by at least 13 games and have lost six games in a row overall. It's hard to see them competing with a strong defensive team in the Heat, who most recently defeated the Cavaliers by a count of 98-79. With Whiteside likely playing, it makes Miami even tougher. This has all the makings of a blowout.
