  • Wiseguys are betting two NBA games on Thursday, headlined by Philadelphia 76ers-Utah Jazz (10:30 p.m. ET).
  • Sharps are also getting down on Los Angeles Lakers-Sacramento Kings (10 p.m. ET).
  • Using the tools available at The Action Network, we analyze how the pros are betting each game.

Wiseguys kicked off the post-Christmas break in Green Dot City, cashing two of their three Wednesday plays. Today, we’re looking at a light slate across the board, with three bowl games, five NBA games and no college hoops until tomorrow.

After consulting the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified two NBA games that pros are betting on Thursday night: Los Angeles Lakers-Sacramento Kings (10 p.m. ET) and Philadelphia 76ers-Utah Jazz (10:30 p.m. ET).

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.
