Here’s how pros are betting Wednesday’s NBA slate.
Knicks vs. Pistons
7 p.m. ET | FSDT, MSG
In one of the day’s least bet NBA matchups, smart money has already had a massive effect on the over/under.
After opening at 211, this total has plummeted to 206 behind an insane 97% of money wagered hitting the under.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report professional betting action in real-time, have triggered Steam Moves on the under at lines of 210.5 and 207, signifying that sharp money is responsible for the line movement we’ve seen so far.

Kings vs. Raptors
7:30 p.m. ET | NSCA
While sharp action is targeting the total in our first game, pros have pivoted to the spread in Kings vs. Raptors.
Sacramento opened as an 8.5-point road underdog, but that number has slipped to +7.5.
SI’s Bet Signals help explain why, evidenced by three smart money indicators at the Kings, coming at lines at +8.5 (twice) and +8.
