NBA Odds: Nuggets vs. Lakers
|PRO Projection||LAL -3.7|
|Time||10 p.m. ET|
The NBA highlight of the night is bit of a late one, at least for those on the East Coast of the country. Nonetheless, Nuggets vs. Lakers isn’t having any trouble attracting bettors, as it leads the five-game slate in total tickets as of the early afternoon.
And it’s not just casual fans betting this game: Sharps have also found a play worth making and are affecting the odds as a result. Let’s take a look through the lens of our PRO Report feature.
Note: Odds, data as of 2:30 p.m. ET.
NBA Sharp Betting Pick: Nuggets vs. Lakers
After opening up at 219, this total has made its way down to 216.5 — and may be found as low as 216 at a couple shops. But, as you might expect, that’s not a result of bettors flocking to the under in a nationally-televised game.
Instead, it’s been sharp bettors — among the mere 21% that have taken the under — that have caught oddsmakers’ attention.
Per Action Labs’ Bet Signals, sharps have triggered market-wide movement four times by hitting the under at lines ranging from 219 to 220.5.
Sharp Action edge: Under
Another reason (which in some ways is the same reason) for sportsbooks to react to the 21% backing of the under: It has generated 60% of the actual money coming in on the total.
That means the under is drawing much, much bigger bets — the ones more likely to be made by sharps.
