  • Without Kevin Durant, the Nets would be favored over the Jazz on Tuesday night, but his absence has caused market moves throughout the morning.

With Kevin Durant sidelined due to COVID protocols, Utah is -4.5 in a game that the Nets likely would have been favored in at full strength.

But even following the Durant news, this number wasn’t quite so high. As our PRO Report displays, some big bets from sharp bettors have helped to get it there. And our experts agree with their take.

NBA Sharp Betting Pick: Jazz vs. Nets

Sharp Action

The plus- and minus-signs may have switched after news of KD’s absence, but still, the Jazz were only around 2-point favorites in the immediate aftermath. That was deemed too low by sharp bettors, who’ve triggered three Action Labs Bet Signals since early this morning, revealing three separate instances of market-wide responses to professional action.

Sharp Action edge: Jazz

Big Money

Also helping push this line — while further confirming the sharp action — the 61% of bettors on the Jazz this morning have generated 92% of the money hitting this spread altogether.

Of course, that’s a figure for which sportsbooks need to account (and one that will probably regress a bit as tipoff approaches), but it’s also one that, when compared with the smaller percentage of tickets, reveals bigger bettors are on the Jazz.
