Two consecutive outright losses as 8.5-point favorites is surely enough for the Clippers to be looked at a bit differently heading into Game 7.
In fact not only did the spread come down 1.5 points to an opener of -7 for tonight’s game, but LA has attracted just 34% of spread bets, even at the lower price. If it holds, that figure would match Game 4 as the Clips’ lowest backing as a favorite since Jan. 24, 2018 (-3.5 vs. Celtics).
But, as you probably are aware — or noticed in the table above — the Clippers are no longer just 7-point favorites. They’ve climbed back up a bit to -7.5, which brings us to tonight’s PRO Report …
Nuggets vs. Clippers Game 7 PRO Report
Sharp action, including bets from big spenders, and a PRO betting system have lined on the same side of this spread, causing the move from the popular side.
As you might’ve been able to guess, that move toward the less popular Clippers is a pretty good sign of sharp activity on the favorite. And Sports Insights Bet Signals have confirmed that to be the case.
They’ve triggered three moves on LA — all at -7 — representing three instances of market activity specifically indicative of sharp action.
Sharp Action edge: Clippers
The 34% backing of the Clippers has also generated a much higher percentage of actual money hitting the spread — 59%, to be exact — meaning bigger bets are landing on the Clips.
And which bettors are more likely to be making those big bets? Sharps.
Big Money edge: Clippers
Even though the sharp action has solely been based around the opening number so far, there is some reason — historically speaking — for bettors to feel good about the Clippers tonight even at the closing number.
LA fits into one of our PRO Systems, “NBA Playoffs, More Money on Favorites,” which has a 125-73-2 (63%) record against the spread, good for a 23% return on investment.
PRO System edge: Clippers
