Bet NBA Action For Monday, April 9, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Milwaukee opened as a 10-point favorite, while the total has gone up from 209. The spread is now at -12 everywhere I've checked and the total is unanimously at 210.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Monday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Magic. Online wager info also shows that 64 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Orlando power forward Jonathan Isaac (ankle) and shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) are out for the season. Small forward Jonathon Simmons (wrist) is out indefinitely. For the Bucks, shooting guards Malcolm Brogdon (quadricep) and Tony Snell (ankle) are both probable to play tonight. Small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle), shooting guard Shabazz Muhammad (ankle) and shooting guard Sterling Brown (personal) are all questionable. Point guard Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is out for the season. Center Thon Maker (groin) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

This just seems like too many points for the Bucks to be laying, especially if Antetokounmpo doesn't play or at least isn't 100 percent. Sure, the Magic are terrible but they also have Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic back on the cout. This could end up being a fairly competitive game.
