Bet NBA Action For Sunday, April 1, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread has stayed at -4 since it opened, while the total has come up from 223.5. Denver is a 4-point favorite at all sportsbooks, while the total is set at 225 at almost all books but can be found as low as 224.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Sunday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets have been placed on the Nuggets. Online wager info also shows that 53 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Milwaukee center John Henson (hand) is questionable to play tonight. Center Thon Maker (groin) is doubtful. Shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon (quadricep) is out until early April, while point guard Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is out indefinitely. For the Nuggets, shooting guard Gary Harris (knee) and small forward Wilson Chandler (nose) are both questionable. Power forward Tyler Lydon (knee) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Nuggets need to keep winning if they want to have a shot at the playoffs, which they did last game with a 126-125 overtime victory at the Thunder. They are playing a Bucks team that has won two in a row on the road, including a 124-122 overtime win at the Lakers last game. Denver already holds a 134-123 victory at the Bucks on Feb. 15, so with added importance to this game I like the Nuggets to win at home where they are always tough.
