NBA Sharp Report: Pros Betting Warriors-Knicks, Two Other Friday Night Games

Oct 26, 2018 6:28 PM EDT
  • Wiseguys are betting three NBA games on Friday, headlined by Warriors-Knicks at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m. ET).
  • The Warriors are listed as 12-point road favorites with an over/under of 226.5
  • Sharps are also betting Mavericks-Raptors (7:30 p.m. ET) and Nets-Pelicans (8 p.m. ET).

Professional bettors enter every new day with a clean slate. It doesn’t matter if they swept the board or got taken to the woodshed the night before.

The blueprint never changes. Wiseguys cover up the names and let the data tell them where the value lies. Sharps bet numbers, not players and teams.

After analyzing Friday’s seven-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three NBA bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:30 p.m. and 8 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.
