NBA Odds: Jazz vs. Nets
|Time||7:30 p.m. ET|
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.
Note: Odds, data as of 11 a.m. ET.
NBA Sharp Betting Pick: Jazz vs. Nets
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
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.
Big Money edge: Jazz
It’s not just the sharps on Utah, either. Our experts have also taken a liking to the favorite, jumping on the Jazz at lines of +2.5 and -2.5.
