- Wednesday's 10-game NBA slate has plenty to offer for pro bettors, and they've targeted three Western Conference games so far.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified which spreads and over/unders they've hit.
With just five NBA games taking place on Tuesday and a measly three being played on Thursday, Wednesday is the night to bet on a slew of NBA matchups.
With 10 games on the board, sharps and squares have already gotten down on the action. So far, a few later games being played in the Western Conference have attracted sharp bettors: Spurs-Timberwolves, Mavericks-Rockets and Suns-Clippers.
San Antonio Spurs at Minnesota Timberwolves
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Timberwolves (-4 to -4.5)
The Spurs are a trendy road dog, getting nearly 65% of the spread bets as of writing (see live data here). However, bets and dollars are quite literally flip-flopped as of 1 p.m. ET, as it’s Minnesota that’s getting nearly 65% of the cash.
Historically, favorites getting less than half the bets but more than half the money have covered at a 55.8% rate, per Bet Labs.
Two Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track and report professional betting action in real-time — were triggered on the Timberwolves on Tuesday night, moving them from -4 to -4.5.
Dallas Mavericks at Houston Rockets
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Mavericks (+7 to +6)
Chris Paul’s availability is in question, and sharp bettors are taking their chances that he won’t be able to go. Pros originally hit the Mavs at +8 — which wasn’t a widely available number — but hit them again at +7 shortly after 12:30 p.m. ET.
Dallas has dropped to +6 at BookMaker, but can still be had at +6.5 at a number of books. If Paul is ruled out, this line will move further in Dallas’ favor.
Luka Doncic is questionable, but is not worth as much to the spread as CP3.
Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Clippers
10:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Over (227.5 to 230)
The Suns visit the (surprisingly) first-place Clippers and the total is on the up and up. Also surprising is the fact that the over is getting just 57% of bets, which is on the low side, especially for the Suns.
The over has closed with a higher percentage of bets in 15 of Phoenix’s 20 games this season.
More than 80% of the cash is on the over, though, which has also seen two Bet Signals. These two factors have helped boost the total by 2.5 points since opening.
