With New York’s mobile sportsbook launch on Saturday morning, what better way to kick that off with another game between the Knicks and Celtics.
The two teams have had a fun first three contests this season. The first one created Bing Bong. That’s all you need to know about that.
The second was an incredibly close game that the Celtics won by seven.
The third on Thursday saw RJ Barrett knock down a buzzer beater three to cap off a 25-point comeback. It was the Knicks’ first buzzer beater since JR Smith did so in 2012.
You can bet on this contest, if you’re in New York state, with cash-ins on new user bonuses at sportsbooks like DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars and BetRivers.
Sharp bettors and big money bettors are targeting the spread and total on this Saturday night contest.
And those big money bettors are going against the public on both of these bets, which will afford you a little bit more expected value.
Knicks vs. Celtics Sharp, Big Money Picks
The Action Network’s tracking data has indicated sharp action and big money bets on the Celtics spread and the under. That means a small minority of bettors are betting big on the Celtics to cover and for the game to go under about 208 points.
That’s despite the fact that the majority of individual bets have been placed on the Knicks spread and the over — two popular bets, especially with New York’s mobile sports betting launch.
Typically, overs get the disproportionate amount of public money. Who likes to root for fewer points?
As a result, there can be excellent value on the under, and in fading the public accordingly.
Sharp Action, Big Money Pick: Celtics -6.5 or better | Under 208 or better
