In what seemed like a blink of the eye, the NBA offseason has come and gone and the 2020-21 season gets underway Tuesday night with the Golden State Warriors facing the Brooklyn Nets.

With Kevin Durant healthy, we’ll get to see Brooklyn’s two-headed monster of KD and Kyrie Irving taking on Steph Curry and the Warriors.

At the time of writing the Nets are 7-point favorites over the Warriors (click here for updated NBA odds), and sharp bettors have had a significant impact on getting it there.

Let’s look at where the Warriors vs. Nets line opened and how the wiseguys have been betting this matchup.

NBA Picks: Warriors vs. Nets

The Warriors vs. Nets spread opened at Brooklyn -5.5 almost two weeks ago and sharp betting action has driven that number up to -7.5 on gameday morning.

Sure, a lot of that movement came in early betting, but it’s not like smart money hit Brooklyn right away, then disappeared.

As recently as Monday evening this line sat at -7 and yes, wiseguys popped the Nets once again (likely in response to Draymond Green’s injury news) to push it to the current consensus of -7.5 according to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals data.

In all, our tools have tracked eight unique instances of smart money coming in on Brooklyn. Those, combined with the two-point line move, leave little doubt regarding the sharp side of tonight’s NBA season-opening matchup.
