Sharp bettors appear to have found a mispriced line — or at least a mispriced opening line — on tonight’s NBA slate.

Let’s take a look at the side catching the attention of professional bettors, courtesy of our PRO Report feature.

NBA Odds: Knicks vs. Bulls

Sharp Action

The Knicks’ move from +4 to +2 has come despite attracting only 39% of bettors, which, in itself, serves as a fairly strong indication of sharp action.

Still, though, it doesn’t hurt to see four Bet Signals — indications of market-wide movement caused specifically by professional betting — triggered by Action Labs as confirmation.

Sharp Action edge: Knicks

Big Money

Also worth noting, and especially so for sportsbooks, the 39% backing of the Knicks has accounted for an impressive 82% of the money that’s landed on the spread as of the early afternoon.

That means bigger bets — the ones more likely to come from sharps — are taking the points, and oddsmakers are clearly reacting.

Big Money edge: Knicks

PRO Systems

History is on the Knicks’ side as well.

For one, their bet-vs.-dollar split has been that of a profitable bet in the past, as it fits them into our NBA Tickets vs. Money PRO System, which has returned a 55% win rate on a sample of more than 600 games since 2015.

New York also fits our Road Dogs Off ATS Loss system, boasting another 55% win rate on a 1,800-game sample since 2005.
