Lakers-Rockets Sharp Report
This line opened at Rockets -1 before it was widely available in the market, and bettors hit the Rox immediately, pushing it up to -1.5, which is where it opened across the majority of books.
It got pushed up all the way to 2.5 earlier this morning before bettors steamed the Lakers at +2.5 (per Sports Insights):
Since then it’s oscillated between 2 and 2.5, which is interesting considering the Lakers are clearly the public favorite. As of 3:30 p.m. ET, they’re getting 72% of the bets and 84% of the money.
For the over/under, it seems sharps and the public are aligned.
