- Of the seven NBA games on tonight's slate, two have drawn significant action from sharp bettors.
- In both cases, pros have been attracted to the over/under, rather than the spread.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how wiseguys are betting Monday's NBA slate.
Seven NBA games will tip off tonight, and while none will attract the same kind of betting action that hits Monday Night Football, they’ll still draw plenty of wagers from NBA fans and, of course, sharps.
Two games in particular have stood out to wiseguys on tonight’s NBA slate, and in both cases, it’s the over/under that’s been the landing spot for sharp money.

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Cleveland Cavaliers
7 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 216.5 to 215)
Bettors haven’t been able to pick a consensus side on this total, as tickets are split 50/50. The percentage of money on each side, however, has not been so split.
Eighty-nine percent of dollars have landed on the under, meaning bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are behind it.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which are triggered whenever market-wide line movement occurs as a result of sharp action — back up that claim, as they’ve highlighted two moves on the under throughout the day.
San Antonio Spurs @ Chicago Bulls
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 215 to 214)
I could pretty much copy and paste the Timberwolves-Cavs description here. That’s how similar these plays are in terms of market activity.
Once again, bettors have been split down the middle, with 50% of bets hitting both the over and under. And once again, the majority of money is coming on the under, though in this case, that majority isn’t quite as heavy (72%).
But while not attracting the same percentage of dollars, this under has triggered four SI Bet Signals to help drop this line from last night’s listed total.
