At the time of writing, 51% of spread tickets are on the Pelicans +7.5 at Lakers. This would be just the sixth time this season that LeBron and Co. have not received a majority of bets. In the previous five games, L.A. went 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS. — John Ewing
Sharp Action 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.
