- Sharp bettors have hit three over/unders on Wednesday's 10-game NBA slate.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified which totals and angles.
Big slate of hoops on Wednesday night between pro and college. With 10 NBA games and more than 40 college matchups, bettors have plenty of options to choose from.
Three NBA over/unders have been hit exceptionally hard by professional bettors: Warriors-Cavaliers, Nuggets-Magic and Thunder-Nets.
Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers
7 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (223.5 to 219.5)
Warriors-Cavs. The NBA Finals matchup that absolutely nobody is looking forward to watching. Golden State is a hefty 11-point road favorite as of writing (see live odds here) and I reckon they’d be about -1000000 in a best-of-seven series.
The spread has seen little activity, but the over/under has been hit hard.
Three Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have been triggered on the under, and although bets are split 52/48 in favor of the over, 75% of cash is on the under. After opening at 222.5 and rising to 223.5, the total has since dropped to 219.5 as a result.
Denver Nuggets at Orlando Magic
7 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (208.5 to 206)
This total opened as the lowest of the night and has only gotten lower since. Like the terrible Finals rematch highlighted above, this game has seen multiple Bet Signals on the under.
However, while the first game is relatively split in terms of how the public is betting it, the consensus opinion is to take the over in this game, as it’s getting 70% of bets. The money in this game is actually favoring the under even more than in Cleveland, though, at 80%.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Brooklyn Nets
7:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (221 to 219.5)
This game is actually very unlike the first two, despite the latest sharp action coming in on the under.
I had planned on writing about how the over was the sharp side of this initially, as that was in fact the case — three Bet Signals on the over had pushed the total up from 216.5 to 221 — but that was apparently just too much.
Shortly after noon ET, sharp buyback came in on the under, dropping it down a point and a half to 219.5. This is a textbook example of how sharp bettors will hit multiple sides of a game, especially if there’s a great deal of line movement.
