Bet NBA Action For Thursday, March 29, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Oklahoma City opened as a 1.5-point favorite before the spread ballooned, while the total has come up from 207. The Thunder are a 4-point favorite at a lot of books, but are also at -4.5 at plenty of books so shop around. The total is at 208.5 at most books, but is also available at 207.5 or 208 in Las Vegas.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 60 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Thunder. Online wager also states that 55 percent of bets are coming in on the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Thunder shooting guard Andre Roberson (patellar tendon) is out for the season. For the Spurs, LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) is questionable. Small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

Oklahoma City has won two of the three meetings this season, but the one matchup in San Antonio ended as a 104-101 victory in favor of the Spurs. San Antonio has also covered two of the three games this season against the Thunder and three of the last four overall. The status of Aldridge is important, but if he is able to give it a go I'm firmly on board with the hosts here. Even if he isn't, I'd expect San Antonio to bounce back after a couple road defeats.
