  • With Steph Curry resting, Saturday night's Mavs-Warriors matchup has seen its over/under fall significantly.
  • Sports Insights' Bet Signals reveal how sharps are also having an impact on the total.

When opening numbers for Saturday’s NBA slate were released, the Mavericks-Warriors matchup (8:30 p.m. ET) was given the third-highest consensus total of of the eight games at 225.5. The earliest openers even had it up at 227.5.

So what gives?

Well, a couple things.

First, the Warriors announced Steph Curry would be resting for the game. That took the total off the board for the night, and caused a re-opening number of 224 this morning.
