Bet NBA Action For Saturday, March 31, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Miami opened as a 9.5-point favorite, while the total has dropped from 212.5. The spread is at -8 almost everywhere, but can be bet at -7.5 if you shop around. The total is at 211 or 211.5 at all books.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 64 percent of public bets are coming in on the Heat. Online wagers also states that 54 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Brooklyn point guard Isaiah Whitehead (wrist) is questionable for today's game. Point guard Jeremy Lin (patellar tendon) is out for the season. For Miami, shooting guard Tyler Johnson (ankle) is probable. Shooting guard Dion Waiters (ankle) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Nets lead the season series 2-1 straight up and ATS. Brooklyn snapped a three-game losing skid with a 111-104 victory at the Magic its last game, while the Heat won their second in a row via a 103-92 triumph over the visiting Bulls. I like Miami here as it has been dominating at home and are mostly healthy once again now that center Hassan Whiteside is back in the lineup. Speaking of Whiteside, he should dominate when he is on the floor against a Nets team with an aversion to guarding opposing big men.
