The return of sports rolls on with the NBA restarting its season with a Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers Thursday night doubleheader.

Jazz-Pelicans is not only tonight’s first NBA matchup, but it’s also attracting the brunt of sharp betting action, especially over the past three days.

Interestingly, Zion Williamson’s unknown status — he is currently listed as a game-time decision for personal reasons — isn’t stopping professionals from unloading on the Jazz vs. Pelicans over/under.

Using The Action Network’s NBA betting tools, let’s examine which side of the total wiseguys are playing.

6:30 p.m. ET | TNT

This total sat at 218.5 as recently as July 25 and ticked up to 221 on Monday, and that’s when the influx of sharp action starting flowing on the over.

The Jazz vs. Pelicans over/under has skyrocketed to 227 as of late Thursday morning, with three steam moves triggered on the over by Sports Insights’ Bet Signals in the past 24 hours, identifying three separate instances of market-moving money hitting that side of the total.

There’s still enough time for buyback to come in on the under, but at the time of writing, there’s no doubt that sharp bettors have consistently played the over in this matchup.
