  • Sharp action has hit tonight's NBA slate on four games in particular, including Spurs-Blazers (10:30 p.m. ET on TNT).
  • Sports Insights' Bet Signals and betting market percentages help reveal which way the smart money is going.

For the second straight night, the NBA slate is a bit… boring. Other than Lakers-Celtics, none of tonight’s NBA games would be on pace to be in the top five of Thursday’s most heavily bet college games.

Still, as they seemingly always do, sharps have found value on three of tonight’s matchups, capped off with Spurs-Blazers at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Sharp angle: Under (moved from 218 to 215.5)

While it might end up being the least heavily bet game among tonight’s NBA matchups, this one has attracted as much sharp action as any other.

Fifty-four percent of bets on the total have hit the under, which makes this a somewhat rare case in which sharp bettors aren’t in disagreement with the public. Those 54% of bettors, however, have generated 96% of actual money being wagered, meaning bigger bets — the ones more likely to be from sharps — are playing the under.

That indication is confirmed by three Sports Insights Bet Signals, revealing three cases of sharp action on the under. In combination with the massive bet vs. money discrepancy, that’s caused this total to see as much movement since opening as any other number on tonight’s slate.
