Pelicans vs. Lakers Sharp Report

Fifty-three percent of bets are hitting the Pelicans, but the percentage of real money wagered, combined with The Action Network’s proprietary betting tools, show wiseguy action continually hitting one side of this spread.

While a very slight majority is taking New Orleans and the points, those tickets account for 67% of the money wagered, which tells us that the bigger bets are backing Zion tonight.

In addition, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals triggered a Steam Move at Pelicans +8, marking a specific instance in which money from respected bettors hit the market and forced oddsmakers to adjust.

Unsurprisingly, this line has dropped from an opener of +8 to +7.5 at DraftKings, and even down to +7 at other sportsbooks across the market.
