Bet NBA Action For Thursday, April 5, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Denver is still a 5.5-point favorite, which is where the spread opened. The over-under has dropped after opening at 227.5. The spread is at -5.5 almost everywhere, but can be found at -5. The majority of books have the total at 224, but several sportsbooks have it at 224.5 so shop around for the best bet.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 64 percent of public bets have sided with the Nuggets. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Point guard Derrick Rose (ankle), center Cole Aldrich (illness) and point guard Jeff Teague (knee) are all questionable to play. Shooting guard Jimmy Butler (knee) is doubtful. Center Justin Patton (illness) is out. For the Nuggets, shooting guard Torrey Craig (nose) is questionable. Shooting guard Gary Harris (knee) is out. Power forward Tyler Lydon (knee) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

Denver is one game behind four teams in the loss column as it sits in the ninth spot in the Western Conference, so tonight's game is super important. Minnesota is one of those teams one game up. The difference for me here is that the Nuggets are 29-10 straight up at home this season, while the T-Wolves are only 16-23 straight up on the road. The smart play here is with Denver.
