- There are 11 NBA games on the board tonight and sharp bettors are keying on three Wednesday matchups.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified which spreads and over/unders pro bettors have targeted.
There’s plenty of basketball on tap tonight. With 11 NBA games on the board and 17 college games to boot, pro bettors have their pick of lines to target.
So far, wiseguys are getting down on late NBA action, as each of the three games starting at 8:30 p.m. ET or later have attracted their fair share of professional wagers.
According to The Action Network’s betting tools, here are the three matchups sharps are targeting.
Utah Jazz at Dallas Mavericks
8:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (Moved from 215.5 to 210.5)
Exactly one week ago, these two teams played in Utah. That game was also featured in the sharp report as the over/under had dropped from 218.5 to 213.5.
Unfortunately, the two squads combined for 219 points. Oh well. Tonight’s game has very similar line movement, but the total is even lower.
Sports Insights has triggered bet signals on under 214, 213 and 212.5. Though the Jazz are known as a defensive team, their games have actually gone over nine of 13 times this season.
San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns
9 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Suns (No move)
At just 5-8 against the spread (ATS), the Suns are tied for the fourth-worst ATS record in the league. It makes sense that just 29% of bettors are backing them as 5-point dogs vs. the Spurs, but some sharp fellas actually like them.
Despite the lack of support, the spread has remained at +5 with two reverse line moves triggered on Phoenix.
Portland Trail Blazers at Los Angeles Lakers
10:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (Moved from 228 to 223)
Bettors are fed up with Lakers over/unders being set too high. Since Halloween, all six Lakers games had totals higher than 230, and all six went under.
They haven’t just gone under, either. They’ve gone under by an average of 19.33 points!
When these two teams played in Portland on Nov. 3, the over/under was 236, but they combined for just 214 points. Though oddsmakers set the bar lower this time around, it apparently wasn’t low enough.
Steam hit the under at 226.5, 225.5 and 224, and the total can now be found at 223 around the market.
Nearly 90% of dollars wagered thus far are on the under so we shall see if this number continues to plummet.
