  • Sharps are betting tonight's 76ers vs. Wizards NBA matchup (7 p.m. ET).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how smart money is moving this over/under.

The totals on tonight’s NBA slate are, well, extreme. Of the four games, three feature totals of 230 or higher, and the other sits below 205.

Of course, oddsmakers know what they’re doing by setting such numbers. You shouldn’t be blindly betting overs on low totals and vice versa — even though the betting market is shaping out that way.

None of tonight’s higher totals have seen more than 53% of bettors on the over, while the one on the low end (Nuggets-Knicks) has attracted 81%.

As for the one drawing the most sharp action, that would be the highest number of the four, coming from the nation’s capital.

Bettors have been undecided on this total since it opened at a consensus 234 (and even as low as 232 at the first books to market). Fifty-one percent of bets have hit the over, but according to our money percentages, those bets have carried a bit more weight.

That slight majority has generated 62% of actual money being wagered, revealing bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — to be among those on the over.

Odds as of Thursday at 1:30 p.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.

Confirming that those bigger bets are in fact coming from sharper customers, two Sports Insights Bet Signals in the form of steam moves have hit the over at 233 and 235.

As a result, this number has jumped up to 235.5 across the market, with some shops even up to 236.
