- It may be tournament season, but sharps are still finding value betting on the NBA.
- Sports Insights' Bet Signals and betting market percentages help reveal the two NBA plays wiseguys are making Wednesday.
Yet another day in March with low NBA bet counts … and the true first-round games of the NCAA Tournament haven’t even begun. Over the next four days this board might just turn into a barren wasteland.
In any case, sharps will be betting the NBA as long as it provides them with some value, as it appears to tonight. Pros have hit two over/unders on Wednesday: Celtics-Sixers (7 p.m.) and Jazz-Knicks (7:30 p.m. ET).

Sharp angle: Under (moved from 226 to 224.5)
While the phrase “heavily bet” should be used loosely when talking about anything other than a college basketball matchup this week, this is still going to be one the most heavily bet NBA games on tonight’s slate.
Among those betting this game — specifically on the total — are sharps. While overall bets are split 50-50 between the over and under (which in theory shouldn’t invite a line change), sharps have taken a liking to a low-scoring game, as indicated by both money percentages and Sports Insights’ Bet Signals.
