After Boston took both home games to jump out to a 2-0 series lead, the Celtics-Sixers series heads to Philly this afternoon (5 p.m. ET), and sharp bettors have already made a mark on Game 3.
The Celtics opened as a 10-point underdog at Bookmaker, but are now down to +8.5 around much of the market. While that’s generally an indication that wiseguys are on the dog, in this case it’s not quite as clear. With 61% of bettors taking the points, the line move isn’t necessarily a result of sharp money.
Instead, sharps have drifted to the total to find their play on today’s game.
