Big Money

The Lakers vs. Nuggets under is also seeing some drastic splits when comparing the percentage of tickets to the percentage of real money hitting that side of the total.

Eighty-six percent of bets have played the over, showing that the vast majority of bettors are pegging Game 4 as a high-scoring matchup. However, 51% of the money has landed on the under, a tell-tale sign that the bigger bets — ones more likely to come from long-term winners — are expecting this game to fall under the total.
