  • Updated betting odds for tonight's Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA matchup have the spread set at Sixers -7.5 with an over/under of 216.5.
  • Throughout much of the day, sharp bettors have been playing a role in shaping those odds, specifically so on the over/under.
  • Check out how we know which pick sharps have made on the total below.

It’s no secret that casual bettors prefer betting overs to unders, but even given that, it’s rare for a nine-game slate not to feature a single popular under.

That’s what could be going down tonight, as every game has attracted at least 56% of tickets to the over.

Sixers vs. Cavaliers is, obviously, among “every game,” though its 58% over backing is on the lower end of the spectrum. As for whether sharps are among that 58%, we’ll turn to money percentages and The Action Network’s proprietary tools.

76ers vs. Cavaliers Sharp Betting Pick

7 p.m. ET

It’s still early in the day, which generally leads to percentage figures regressing toward the 50-50 mark, but as of the late morning the 58% of over bettors have generated just 9% of actual money. That means the under is drawing much bigger bettors — the one more likely to be made by sharps.

The line movement would suggest the same, as the total has tanked from 220 down to 216.

Serving as sharp action confirmation, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and record instances of market activity that would be caused by pro money, have been triggered three times on the under — twice at 220 and again at 217.5.
