Tonight’s 8-game NBA slate tips off with a 5 p.m. ET Bulls vs. Knicks appetizer at Madison Square Garden.

The Bulls enter New York in 11th place in the East at 20-39, and are 3-point dogs to the tied-for-last Knicks (17-42). The spread, however, isn’t what’s caught the attention of sharp bettors.

Bulls vs. Knicks Over/Under Sharp Betting Pick

An opening total between 215 and 216 has had no trouble drawing bettors to the over. It was, after all, tied for the lowest opener on today’s slate.

But even with 64% of bettors hitting the over, this game has become the lone holder of that title, as sharp bettors in disagreement with the masses have forced oddsmakers to drop this number down to 214 across most of the market.

The 36% backing of the under has generated an impressive 85% of actual money to this point, which obviously creates a monetary liability for sportsbooks, but perhaps more importantly, reveals how sharps are playing this number.

A pair of Sports Insights Bet Signals — trackers of sharp action based on market activity — have confirmed sharps to have hit the under on at least two occasions, helping cause the total drop.
