NBA Sharp Report: Pros Doubling Down on Warriors-Jazz Spread and Over/Under

Oct 19, 2018 6:00 PM EDT
  • The Golden State Warriors are 2.5-point road favorites against the Utah Jazz (10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN), with an over/under of 217.5.
  • Using Sports Insights' betting tools, we break down how professionals are betting both the spread and over/under.

The NBA season is officially underway and the team at The Action Network is excited to provide Sharp Reports all season long.

Basketball is predominantly a spread and over/under sport. This means bettors must win 52.38% of the time in order to break even (assuming standard -110 juice).

Anything above that means you’re turning a profit.

When it comes to Friday, sharps are laser-focused on the biggest, most heavily bet game of the night: Golden State Warriors at Utah Jazz (10:30 p.m. ET on ESPN).

In fact, professional bettors have taken a side on both the spread and the over/under.

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
