- Sharp bettors have made three plays on Wednesday's slate of NBA matchups, including one on Warriors-Jazz (10 p.m. ET).
- Sports Insights' Bet Signals help reveal which way the smart money is going.
Following a measly four-game Tuesday night slate, the NBA returns with plenty more options on Wednesday.
Twenty-four teams will be in action tonight, and bettors have taken notice. Of course, among those bettors have been sharps.
Wiseguys have hit three games in particular this evening, with start times ranging from 7:30 to 9 p.m. ET.

Detroit Pistons @ Minnesota Timberwolves
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Pistons (line has remained at +5.5)
Those signals have dropped this line one-half point from its opening number despite the heavy majority on Minnesota.
New Orleans Pelicans @ Milwaukee Bucks
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angles: Bucks (moved from -6 to -8.5), Under (moved from 234 to 231)
A slightly different story is taking place in this game. While it doesn’t have a contrarian side — each team is attracting 50% of bettors — it does have a sharp one.
Sixty-eight percent of dollars have landed on the Bucks, meaning bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are backing Milwaukee.
That indication is confirmed by three SI Bet Signals, one at -7.5, one at -8, and one at -8.5.
The under has also drawn its fair share of sharp money, and in this case, wiseguys are in agreement with the public.
Sixty-four percent of bettors, accounting for 75% of dollars, are playing the under, which has dropped three points behind three Bet Signals.
Golden State Warriors @ Utah Jazz
10 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Jazz (moved from +3 to +2.5)
Getting the Warriors at a skimpy 3-point spread seems almost too good to be true. That’s led to 69% of bets in this game landing on the road favorite, making Golden State the second-most popular pick of the evening.
Those bets, however, have made up for only 54% of dollars wagered, meaning bigger, probably sharper bettors are backing Utah.
On top of that, six Bet Signals have been triggered on the Jazz — more than any other play tonight — to drop this line from its opening number. A few books have even gone as far as +2.5.
