Eight games are scheduled to tip off in the Association tonight, and sharp bettors seem to have found at least one landing spot.

Note: Odds, data as of 3 p.m. ET.


NBA Pick: Bulls vs. Thunder

Each side of this matchup has seen the minus-sign for at least a period of time, but it appears that the most recent switch over to Chicago has been the result of sharp action.

Sharp Action

Five Bet Signals from Action Labs — triggered by market-wide movement caused specifically by sharp action — on the Bulls have confirmed a professional backing to be the cause of Chicago’s transition from +1.5 late this morning to -1 — even -1.5 at some shops — as of writing.

A most recent signal was triggered at a pick’em just after 1:40 p.m. ET, getting the market to the current listing.

Big Money

Providing further evidence of a sharp backing of the Bulls, their 57% backing has generated 83% of the actual money hitting this spread.

Of course, an 83% edge in the money department is worthy of sportsbooks’ attention for financial liability reasons alone, but the difference between the two figures also reveals Chicago to be landing the bigger bets — the ones more likely to come from sharps.

PRO Systems

Historically speaking, rested road teams, like the Bulls tonight, have provided value to NBA bettors.

Given their circumstances, the Bulls fit into our appropriately-named Rested Road Teams PRO System, which has returned a 59% win rate since 2005.
