Brooklyn Nets @ Toronto Raptors
7:30 p.m. ET | YES
Sharp angle: Over (moved from 219.5 to 222)
Perhaps the easiest way of locating sharp action is reverse line movement — when the line moves away from the popular side. Unless sharps are hitting the unpopular bet, there’d be no reason for sportsbooks to let the majority of their customers have a better chance of winning.
In this case, however, there’s no reverse line movement to make our lives easy.
Tonight’s Nets-Raptors matchup has drawn 55% of bettors to the over, which has risen almost three points since opening, but our tools indicate that those bettors have been of the sharper variety.
For starters, four Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on the over, revealing four cases of market-wide line shifts from sharp action.
On top of that, the 55% on the over has generated 84% of actual money being wagered on the total. That means bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are expecting a high-scoring game.
