Bet NBA Action For Saturday, April 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

San Antonio opened as a 4.5-point favorite before the line went up slightly, while the total has gone down a point after opening at 203. San Antonio is a 5-point favorite across the board at all books, while the total is at 202.5 at most sportsbooks but can be found also at 202.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 57 percent of public bets are coming in on the Spurs. Online wager info also states that 62 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Portland point guard Damian Lillard (ankle) is probable to play tonight. Power forward Ed Davis (ankle) is questionable. Small forward Maurice Harkless (knee) is out until mid-April. Shooting guard CJ Wilcox (knee) is out indefinitely. For San Antonio, small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadricep) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Trail Blazers are breathing easy right now with a cushion as they sit in the third spot in the Western Conference, while the Spurs are in the big group of teams vying for the fourth through eighth positions. I'm going to say San Antonio brings its 'A' game tonight as it is 31-8 straight up at home this season and defeated the Rockets 100-83 the last time they played at home before two straight road defeats.
