Wiseguys have continued to do well by getting down early each morning, especially in the NBA. Thursday’s featured Wake and Rake matchup offered everything we look for when attempting to pinpoint sharp action, led by a bets vs. dollars discrepancy that was backed by a handful of Bet Signal triggers.
Bet Signals monitor the real-time betting market and report professional action through Steam and Reverse Line Move triggers. According to the current list of Bet Signal alerts, as well as the rest of the tools available in Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro subscription, tonight’s Hornets-Magic (7:00 p.m. ET) game is already showing signs of interest from sharp bettors.
Charlotte opened as a 5.5-point road favorite against Orlando and 70% of early spread tickets are backing the Hornets. However, wiseguys have already gotten down on the underdog in this matchup, highlighted by two Reverse Line Moves and one Steam Move triggered on the Magic.
This influx of one-sided sharp action has forced oddsmakers to move the line against the betting percentages, down to -5.
