- Sharp action has hit tonight's NBA slate on two games in particular: Blazers-Thunder and Bucks-Bulls.
- Sports Insights' Bet Signals reveal which way the smart money is going in both matchups.
With only a couple major college basketball games on tap tonight, plenty of bettors are making their way to the professional game to lay down some action.
Of course, sharps don’t really care about which games are considered “major.” They’ll be betting both leagues as long as they can find games with value, and tonight they’ve found two such games in the NBA: Blazers-Thunder and Bucks-Bulls (both 8 p.m. ET tips).

Milwaukee Bucks @ Chicago Bulls
8 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 229.5 to 227.5)
While this total opened at 229.5, it’s fallen two full points — and even 2.5 points in some spots — since. That line fall hasn’t been thanks to any sort of public support on the under, however.
As they often do, most public bettors have been hammering away at the over, which has drawn 65% of bets. Seeing the line move away from such a popular pick should again serve as the first indication of wiseguy activity.
Per Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, pros have caused line moves by hitting the under twice — once at 229.5 and the other at the current number. The latter caused a move to 227, but many books have found their way back to 227.5 since then.
