For the time being, sharp action in tonight’s betting market has come mainly by way of the NBA. Of course, that could change as Monday Night Football’s kickoff approaches, but wiseguys aren’t waiting around to hit three games on the hardwood.
Pacers vs. Pistons, Trail Blazers vs. Spurs and Jazz vs. Suns have all provided some value to sharps tonight, resulting in two over/under bets and one on the spread.

Pacers vs. Pistons
7 p.m. ET
This game opened with the second-lowest total on the Monday slate, but according to sharp bettors, it still wasn’t low enough.
While a slight majority of tickets have taken the over on the small number, smart money has been pouring in on the under (83% of dollars, to be exact), driving the total down from 213.5 to 212.5.
Confirming the professional action, three Sports Insights Bet Signals — indicators of market-wide movement caused by sharp activity — have been triggered on the under. It’s worth noting, though, that all three came at the opening number.

Trail Blazers vs. Spurs
8:30 p.m. ET
As far as an overall bet count, this game should be among the leaders by the end of the night. Damian Lillard and the Blazers opened as 3.5/4-point underdogs in San Antonio, but that has since changed.
The Spurs are now up to -6 across most of the market, and while they are the popular side, 57% of bets probably isn’t going to cause that sort of movement with no additional factors.
In this case, those factors are once again the percentage of money and two steam moves triggered by SI’s Bet Signals.
The 57% backing of San Antonio has generated 74% of actual money, meaning bigger (probably sharper) bets are laying the points. And the sharp moves were triggered at -4.5 and -5, pushing oddsmakers to the current number.

Jazz vs. Suns
10 p.m. ET
One of tonight’s final tips, this over/under is shaping up to be quite similar to the first one mentioned on tonight’s sharp card.
As was the case with Pacers-Pistons, a slight majority of bettors are going with the over, but sportsbooks are still finding reason to lower this number. That reason, as you could’ve probably guessed, has been sharp action.
Eighty-nine percent of money is hitting the under despite its lacking popularity, and another three Bet Signals have been triggered (two at 217.5, one at 216.5).
All of that has brought the number from its opener of 217.5 to 215.5.
