Bet NBA Action For Saturday, April 6, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread opened as a pick'em, while the total has gone up from 221.5. It can be found at either Denver as a 1-point favorite or LA a 1-point fave if you shop around. The total is at 222.5 at most sportsbooks, but can also be bet at 223.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday morning, 76 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Nuggets. Online wager info also says that 62 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Denver shooting guard Gary Harris (knee) is out for today's game, while power forward Tyler Lydon (knee) is out indefinitely. For the Clippers, small forward Danilo Gallinari (hand) is out today. Point guard Jawun Evans (hernia), point guard Milos Teodosic (heel) and point guard Patrick Beverley (knee) are all out for the season. Shooting guard Avery Bradley (hernia) is out until early May.

BETTING STRATEGY

Both teams played two days ago, with the Nuggets winning 100-96 at home over the Timberwolves while the Clippers lost 117-95 at the Jazz. Los Angeles will be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss, while Denver stands a half-game back of the eighth seed with three games left. I predicted that LA would get blown out at Utah and fold its tent. The writing is on the wall that the Clippers aren't making the postseason, while the Nuggets are in the thick of the race and this is a must-win game. Go with the visitors here.
