- Wiseguys are betting three NBA games on Monday, headlined by Wizards-Blazers (10 p.m. ET).
- Sharps are also betting Pacers-Timberwolves (8 p.m. ET) and Suns-Warriors (10:30 p.m. ET).
Sharp bettors went 2-1 with their weekend plays. Tonight they’re picking their spots and being selective, knowing that they must win 52.38% of the time in order to break even (assuming -110 standard juice). Anything above that is pure profit.
After analyzing Monday’s nine-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three NBA bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 8 p.m, 10 p.m. at 10:30 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.
