- Sharps are betting tonight's Rockets vs. Clippers NBA matchup (10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).
- Here's were the smart money is landing in this game.
With no NFL and a lackluster college basketball slate, the NBA takes center stage tonight.
Sure, college football is providing a matchup between Colorado State and Wyoming, but that game won’t single-handedly dominate Friday’s betting handle, especially with the Houston Rockets taking on the Los Angeles Clippers in a huge late-night NBA clash.
And while professional bettors have been selective and picked their spots with smaller college games so far this season, they’re all over tonight’s Rockets vs. Clippers tilt.
Let’s look at how smart money is already moving the line for Rockets vs. Clippers.
