Detroit Pistons @ Brooklyn Nets
7:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Brooklyn (moved from +1 to -2.5)
Brooklyn has gone from a dog to a favorite, but it’s not because of any love from public bettors.
The Nets are getting only 38% of bets, but those bets have accounted for 53% of total dollars wagered as of writing (see live data here).
Brooklyn has also been on the receiving end of two Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which are indications of sharp action affecting the entire betting market.
Denver Nuggets @ Chicago Bulls
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 226.5 to 221.5)
Despite the 62% of bettors taking the over in this matchup, this total has fallen five points from its opening number.
The 38% of bets on the under have accounted for 44% of total bets on this game, indicating that bigger — and most likely sharper — wagers are on the under. The under has also triggered four Sports Insights’ Bet Signals.
New Orleans Pelicans @ Golden State Warriors
10:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: New Orleans (moved from +12 to +9.5)
The Pelicans have been one of the biggest movers on Wednesday’s board, but like Brooklyn, it hasn’t been because of any public love.
In fact, with 26% of bets, they’re one of the night’s least popular bets — yet they’ve fallen from +12 to +9.5.
In addition to the 33% of money they’ve generated, they’ve also been on the receiving end of four steam moves, all of which have contributed to the significant line move.
San Antonio Spurs @ Phoenix Suns
10:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Phoenix (moved from +7.5 to +7)
In another one of the night’s most contrarian spots, the Suns have picked up only 29% of bets. Despite that, their line has moved from +7.5 to +7.
Phoenix has also generated two Bet Signals to help move this line down a half point.
