Bet NBA Action For Saturday, April 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread opened at -6 where it is now, while the total has dropped slightly after opening at 218.5. Houston is a 5.5-point favorite at most books, but some have it at -6. The total is 218 at the majority of sportsbooks, but can also be found at 218.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Thunder. Online wager info also shows that 63 percent of bets are siding with the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Oklahoma City shooting guard Andre Roberson (patellar tendon) is out for the season. For the Rockets, power forward Tarik Black (back) and shooting guard Eric Gordon (foot) are questionable. Power forward Ryan Anderson (ankle) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

Houston can coast to the finish line as it secured the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference easily, although it won't take games like this lightly as being playoff-ready will be important. Oklahoma City is clinging onto a playoff spot with three games left and can't afford slip-ups, so I'm going to take the points with the visitors as the more motivated team here.
