Bet NBA Action For Wednesday, April 4, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

San Antonio opened as a 5.5-point favorite, while the total has dropped from 211.5. The spread is at -6.5 at most books, but can be found at -6. The total ranges from 206 to 207 points so shop for the best line.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Wednesday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets are coming in on the visiting Spurs. Online wager info also states that 55 percent of bets are on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

San Antonio small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadricep) is out indefinitely. For the Lakers, point guard Lonzo Ball (knee) and small forward Luol Deng (ankle) are both questionable. Small forward Brandon Ingram (brain injury) is out indefinitely. Point guard Isaiah Thomas (hip) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

Despite the Lakers having so many players out or questionable with injuries, it's weird to think that the Spurs only have one player out yet he is the most valuable absence. No one really knows whether Leonard will return for the postseason, but in true San Antonio fashion it has found a way to be one of the better teams in the Western Conference without its best player. Los Angeles holds two victories over the Spurs this season, so expect better focus out of the visitors tonight. The spread is a bit big, but I'm comfortable with it. Go with San Antonio in this spot.
