  • Pro bettors are all over Wednesday's Nuggets vs. Spurs spread.
  • Find out why they're backing San Antonio and how they've moved the odds.

A common misconception among casual bettors is that “sharps” — winning long-term bettors with the resources and respect to move the entire market — play every game.

In addition, many believe there is a sharp  side and a public side to every game. This is also false as both pros and recreational players can certainly find themselves making the same wagers.

Nonetheless, there are times when sharp and public bettors disagree, and tonight’s Nuggets vs. Spurs matchup is a perfect example.

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, let’s break down how the action is coming in on this game.

Nuggets vs. Spurs Sharp Betting Pick

4 p.m. ET  

Denver opened as a 3.5-point favorite across the market for tonight’s matchup with San Antonio, and 77% of bettors have jumped on the favorites.

However, this line has dropped to Nuggets -3 at a handful of sportsbooks, like BetMGM.

While the majority of bettors are playing Denver, 52% of actual money wagered has come in on the Spurs, suggesting much more balanced action.

In addition, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track instances of professional betting action moving the NBA market, have triggered a handful of smart money indicators on the Spurs.

While public bettors are overwhelmingly laying the points, sharps are instead finding value with the underdogs.

If you’re planning on tailing the wiseguys, be sure to shop for the best line and snag a shop still hanging +3.5, like DraftKings Sportsbook.
