Friday NBA Sharp Report: Pros Betting Thunder-Wizards, Pacers-Bulls

Nov 02, 2018 4:26 PM EDT
  • Professional bettors have made plays on two of Friday's slate of NBA games.
  • Sharps are betting Oklahoma City Thunder-Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers-Chicago Bulls (both at 8 p.m. ET).

Professional bettors went 1-1 with their Thursday plays, losing the Cavs spread but cashing the Bucks-Celtics Over.

With a loaded eight-game slate on Friday night, wiseguys see a board dripping with value.

After analyzing the Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed two NBA bets that professionals are focusing on, both starting at 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.
