  • Tonight's Denver Nuggets-Golden State Warriors matchup (10:30 p.m. ET, TNT) is the most popular game among NBA bettors.
  • Professionals are also betting Nuggets-Warriors, resulting in five separate occasions of market-wide line movement.

Tuesday night’s NBA slate is small, but the Denver Nuggets-Golden State Warriors matchup is an exciting game among fans and bettors.

According to The Action Network’s public betting data, this is already the most heavily bet NBA game of the night, which is rare considering it’s also the latest game on the schedule.

Typically, casual bettors wait until closer to tipoff to place their bets, so it’s standard to see the earlier games on a given slate attracting more action throughout the day, with the later games catching up later at night.

It’s not only Average Joes keying in on this matchup, either.

Sharps are also getting in on the Nuggets-Warriors action, which isn’t surprising on its own, but it’s how they’re betting this game that’s so intriguing.

Life is too short to bet unders, right? Well, not tonight.

Seventy-three percent of tickets and 77% of dollars wagered on the Nuggets-Warriors total have hit the over, yet the number has dropped from 221.5 to 219.5 at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.

Why? Because professionals have steadily pounded the under throughout the day.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track instances of market-wide line movement caused by professional bettors — have triggered three Reverse Line Moves and two Steam Moves on the under.

While the majority of bettors have consistently been taking this over, on five separate occasions money from respected players forced oddsmakers to adjust this total down and against the overall betting trends, revealing just how much the pros like this over/under.
