Spurs vs. Pelicans Sharp Betting Pick: Zion Williamson’s NBA Debut
Sixty-six percent of spread bets are laying the points with the Pelicans, but it’s the over/under taking the brunt of sharp action.
This total opened at 235.5 and wiseguys immediately took two cracks at the over, identified via two Steam Moves from Sports Insights’ Bet Signals.
After being hit with smart money, oddsmakers had no choice but to move this up to 237.5 this morning.
However, since the initial steam pumped this number up, buyback has shown up to play the under, pushing the total back to 236.
