Bet NBA Action For Sunday, April 1, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread and the over-under are still where they were when they opened overnight. The spread is at -8 across the board, while the total can be found at 210 or 210.5 at various sportsbooks.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Sunday morning, 80 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Wizards. Online wager info also says that 58 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Washington point guard John Wall (knee) returned to action Saturday in the 107-93 home win over the Hornets and is probable for today's game. Shooting guard Bradley Beal (knee) is also probable. Small forward Otto Porter Jr. (ankle) is questionable. For the Bulls, small forward Paul Zipser (foot) is questionable. 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.

PUBLIC BETTING

Both teams are on a back-to-back here with the Wizards winning the aforementioned game over Charlotte, while Chicago secured a 90-82 victory at the Magic to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Bulls are still without Dunn and LaVine, but their front court situation is more solidified with the return from injury of Lauri Markkanen at power forward and Denzel Valentine at small forward. Washington is trying to hold onto the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race, while the Bulls are firmly committed to securing a high draft pick. But you can't tell the players not to compete and this spread seems a bit high with Wall still not at 100 percent and the Bulls having plenty of young players who aren't as impacted by a quick turnaround.
