A nine-game slate presents itself in the NBA tonight, and boy have sharps come out to play.
Generally a slate of this size results in a rundown of about three games drawing heavy sharp action. But tonight, six of those nine matchups have caught the attention of pro bettors, including a couple from out West that could have an effect on the conference playoff picture.
Let’s take a look at the lines being moved by smart money tonight, starting with the Nets-Pacers over/under.

The sharp play on this total has been about as obvious as they come — something that can be said about more than just this game tonight.
Sixty-four percent of bets have hit the over, which isn’t surprising given the public’s tendency to root for offense. A bit more surprising, maybe, is that the total has fallen despite the over’s popularity. After opening at 220.5, it’s down to 217.5 across the market.
Part of the reason is that the 36% of under tickets have generated 75% of actual money hitting the total. Obviously, that’s going to create a monetary liability, but perhaps more importantly, it tells us that the under is receiving much bigger bets — the ones more likely to come from sharps.
Three Sports Insights Bet Signals have confirmed three separate waves of smart money landing on the under (at 220.5, 220 and 219.5), helping pushing oddsmakers to the current total.

Unlike most of the other plays you’ll find on tonight’s report, this one doesn’t come as a disagreement to the public side. And based on the line comparison from opening until now, you wouldn’t necessarily think sharps have taken a stand.
