One of the most efficient ways to find value betting on a given slate, especially a large one, is to have access to a model that provides projected odds for every game.

By comparing the projected line to the current number, savvy bettors can find value by jumping on those with the biggest differences.

The Action Network now offers NBA PRO Projections for every game, which not only offers the projected spread, but also calculates and grades every edge.

Using this feature, let’s detail the smart way to bet Mavericks vs. Raptors, which is showing the top edge for Monday’s slate.

NBA Picks: Mavericks vs. Raptors

The Raptors opened as 4-point favorites (click here for the latest NBA odds) over the Mavericks and have leaked up to -5 across the market, and our NBA PRO Projections suggest now is the time to buy back Dallas.

We project the Mavericks vs. Raptors spread to be Dallas +3, which means the current line of +5 is a solid value bet.

The difference between these two numbers results in a B-graded 5.6% edge, which, as I mentioned above, is the biggest betting edge across the NBA’s nine-game Monday slate.
