Bet NBA Action For Tuesday, April 3, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Houston opened as an 8.5-point favorite before the spread dropped by a point, while the total has gone up a point from 213. The spread is at -7.5 everywhere now, while the total is either at 213.5 or 214.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday, afternoon, 62 percent of public bets are siding with the Rockets. Online wager info also shows that 69 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

The Wizards do not have any injuries to report. For Houston, small forward PJ Tucker is probable to play. Point guard Chris Paul (hip) and center Nene (back) are both questionable.

BETTING STRATEGY

Houston had its 11-game win streak ended at the hands of the host Spurs last game, so perhaps the Rockets are slowing down their pace as they ease into the playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference. With Washington back at full strength following the return of star point guard John Wall, this has the makings of an entertaining game tonight. The Wizards already hold a 121-103 victory over Houston this season, so I'd expect this game to stay closer than what the spread indicates.
