Bet NBA Action For Monday, April 9, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The spread opened as a pick'em before shifting in favor of OKC, while the total has gone up from 210.5. The Thunder are a 3.5-point favorite almost everywhere, but can be found at -4 if you shop around. The over-under is at 212 or 212.5 depending on the sportsbook.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 84 percent of public bets are pouring in on visiting Oklahoma City. Online wager info also shows that 51 percent of bets are coming in on the under.

INJURY REPORT

Thunder shooting guard Andre Roberson (patellar tendon) is out for the season. As for Miami, shooting guard Dion Waiters (ankle) is out for the season.

BETTING STRATEGY

This is an important game for the Thunder as they try to hold onto their playoff position with two games remaining, currently clinging to the seventh seed. The Heat have a playoff berth clinched and they might actually be best served losing and trying to fall into the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, where they would meet the depleted Celtics. Oklahoma City won the first meeting 105-99 on its home court last month and I expect the result to be the same tonight.
