If you're in the mood for a high-volume NBA slate, today's your day.

Friday night's slate is jam-packed with action, featuring 10 games across the board.

It's admittedly littered with obscure matchups, such as a non-conference showdown between the Hornets-Pelicans and a lopsided tilt between the Pistons and Celtics.

Those betting spreads also happen to be two of the most-popular wagers as we roll into the weekend.

5 Most Popular NBA Bets 

Timberwolves (-7.5) vs. Magic

7 p.m. ET

Not too far behind is Minnesota, which is pulling in a whopping 84% of wagers at the time of writing. The Timberwolves are 36-29-2 against the spread (55.4%) this season, the sixth-best mark in all of basketball.

Pistons (+14.5) vs. Celtics

7:30 p.m. ET

The majority of the betting public thinks the underdog is catching a few too many points.

Detroit is attracting 72% of tickets vs. the red-hot Celtics, the third-highest clip on Friday's board.

Hornets (-2.5) vs. Pelicans

8 p.m. ET

It's all Hornets support for tonight's road game in New Orleans. Charlotte is attracting a ridiculous 91% of the betting tickets, the most of any spread in Friday's tracker.

Heat (-7) vs. Cavaliers

8 p.m. ET

The top-seeded Heat are tied with the Pistons for a 72% ticket count. The Cavaliers have notably struggled on the road in this series, going just 2-12 against the number over the last 14 in Miami.

Jazz (-5.5) vs. Spurs

8:30 p.m. ET

Utah has candidly been a wallet-burner in 2021-22, with a 28-36-1 record against the spread (43.8%) entering the weekend. However, that hasn't stopped bettors from piling up on the Jazz, who are generating 67% of tickets.
