- Professional bettors are getting down on the Utah Jazz-Memphis Grizzlies over/under tonight (8 p.m. ET).
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how wiseguys are betting this NBA matchup.
We’ve seen an Over renaissance in the NBA so far this season, with high-scoring games littering box scores like the 1980s. This has been a result of the rule change to reset the shot clock and teams committing to pushing the pace and shooting more three-pointers.
However, the books have caught up to this new trend and the public Over party looks to be … over.
Through Nov. 2, Overs went 73-50 (59.3%), winning +19.44 units. However, since that time they’re gone 23-42 (35.4%), losing -20.34 units.
After analyzing Monday’s nine-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed one NBA over/under bet that professionals are focusing on tonight– Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies (8 p.m. ET.)
