- With the NBA getting a day off tomorrow, sharp bettors haven't shied away from tonight's 13-game slate.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified which spreads and over/unders pro bettors are targeting.
Get your NBA bets in while you can, folks. There are NO games tomorrow. The NFL gets Thanksgiving, but NBA diehards out there get a basketball marathon on Christmas so it all evens out, I suppose.
According to The Action Network’s betting tools, here are three matchups sharps are targeting:
Indiana Pacers at Charlotte Hornets
7 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Over (215.5 to 219)
This over/under opened at 215.5, a number that Kemba Walker may come close to on his own. Sharp bettors weren’t having any part of that, though.
Three bet signals have been triggered by Sports Insights on the over, which has driven the line up significantly.
This line wasn’t posted until about 9:30 a.m. ET and bettors didn’t wait long to act. The initial wave of sharp action came in at 9:50 a.m., and it took just two hours for the total to rise 3.5 points.
Phoenix Suns at Chicago Bulls
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Suns (+2 to -1)
Evidently, the Bulls don’t deserve to be favored against … well, basically anyone. Though the Suns head to Chicago with a 3-13 record, sharps have pushed them from dogs to favorites against the 4-13 Bulls.
Phoenix was steamed twice and finally made the flip from +1 to -1. The Suns are getting 40% of spread bets, but money is split.
Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks
8:30 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Nets (+7 to +5.5)
While most of the sharp action for the two games above hit the market this morning, pros hammered the Nets last night.
Shortly before 11 p.m. ET, a massive wave came in at Pinnacle, causing the Nets to jump from +7/+6.5 to +5.5 in one fowl swoop (Thanksgiving pun).
The line remains at +5.5 as of noon ET Tuesday, with Brooklyn receiving 45% of spread bets and 55% of dollars.
