- Wiseguys are getting down on three NBA games Friday night, headlined by Utah Jazz-Charlotte Hornets (7 p.m. ET).
- Sharps are also betting Cleveland Cavaliers-Boston Celtics (7 p.m. ET) and Denver Nuggets-Portland Trail Blazers (10:30 p.m. ET).
- Using the tools available at The Action Network, we analyze how the pros are betting each game.
Sharps swung and missed on their “Fade the Trendy Underdog” play last night, as the Raptors beat the Warriors, 131-128, in overtime but failed to cover the spread.
Tonight, wiseguys look to bounce back and cash in on a massive 11-game slate.
After consulting the betting tools available at Sports Insights and The Action Network, I’ve identified three games that pros are betting on Friday night, with two games starting at 7 p.m. and one at 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.
