Bet NBA Action For Saturday, April 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Golden State opened as a 7-point favorite, while the total has gone up after opening at 223. The Warriors are a 6-point favorite at most books, but are also available at -6.5 for anyone shopping the best price on the Pelicans. The total is either at 224.5 or 225 depending on where you look.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 52 percent of public bets are coming in on Golden State. Online wager info also says that 63 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

New Orleans shooting guard Ian Clark (ankle) is out indefinitely. Center Alexis Ajinca (knee), center DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) and point guard Frank Jackson (foot) are all out for the season. For the Warriors, small forward Andre Iguodala (knee) is probable. Point guard Shaun Livingston (knee) is doubtful. Small forward Omri Casspi (ankle) is out indefinitely. Shooting guard Patrick McCaw (back) is out until early May. Small forward Chris Boucher (ankle) is out indefinitely. Point guard Steph Curry (knee) is out until late April.

BETTING STRATEGY

New Orleans has a lot more to play for here as its playoff lives hang in the balance the next three games as it currently holds onto the seventh seed. Golden State has a firm grasp on the second seed, but were also called out by head coach Steve Kerr for poor play after a 126-106 loss at the Pacers last game. I still believe the Pelicans are the play here as the six points are a solid cushion.
