NBA line movement for August 12
Patrick Everson

The Thunder and the Heat meet in an 8 p.m. ET Wednesday contest. Most sportsbooks waited to put up any Wednesday lines, with lineups in constant flux of late, but FanDuel has the Thunder -4.

NBA betting odds are on the board for a four-game Wednesday slate inside the NBA Bubble in Orlando. Among the highlights is a prime-time matchup between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Multiple oddsmakers provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Wednesday’s matchups.

NBA line movement

It’s the fourth-place team in the East against the fifth-place team in the West when the Heat and Thunder get together for an 8 p.m. ET tipoff. Almost every book held off posting any of Wednesday’s games, with lineups in constant flux for these last few days of the regular season. However, FanDuel Sportsbook had the Thunder -4 Tuesday night.

The Raptors are among the hottest teams inside the bubble, going 5-1 SU and ATS, including a 114-106 win over the Bucks on Monday as 5.5-point underdogs. Toronto faces the 76ers in a 6:30 p.m. ET start, and FanDuel pegged the Raptors 5-point favorites.

In the 9 p.m. ET nightcap, the Clippers and Nuggets do battle, with Los Angeles 5.5-point chalk at Fan Duel.
