While Thursday’s sports schedule isn’t all that exciting from a high level, there are plenty of interesting betting angles to discuss across tonight’s NFL and college football matchups.

Nuggets vs. Pelicans Sharp Report
This total opened at 227 and, in this case, the line movement tells the story. Just 47% of tickets have landed on the under, but they account for 80% of the money wagered, so it’s no surprise to see this total falling.
But considering it’s down to 223 at PointsBet, and even further at other shops across the market, there’s a very good chance that the 80% of money is also coming from respected bettors.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals confirm our suspicions, triggering Steam Moves on Under 226 and again at Under 224.5, leaving no doubt that sharp action is responsible for these massive market adjustments.
