It’s Masters Thursday! While bettors are obviously getting down hard on the biggest golf tournament of the year, there’s still plenty of action throughout the day with 29 NHL, NBA and MLB games, combined.
The public will overwhelmingly be betting the Masters because it’s the biggest television viewing event over the next four days, but wiseguys don’t bet just because they’ll be watching.
The driving force for professional bettors is value, and according to the tools included in Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro membership, tonight’s Clippers-Jazz (9:00 p.m. ET) matchup is a prime target of early wiseguy money.
In terms of betting data and signals, this game checks off all the boxes regarding what we look for when diagnosing sharp action.
Utah opened as a 6.5-point favorite against Los Angeles and is receiving 44% of spread bets, but that accounts for 75% of all dollars wagered. Sports Insights’ Bet Signals add another important piece to the puzzle with two Steam Move triggers on Utah.
Not only is overall money backing the Jazz, but that money is also very sharp, as noted by both Steam Moves and the corresponding line movement up to Utah -7 across the betting market.
