  • There are six Summer League games on Thursday.
  • The betting lines are on the move.
  • Here is one strategy bettors can follow to profit from the shifting odds.

After five days of basketball in Las Vegas, the 2018 NBA Summer League playoffs tipped off on Wednesday.

Even though these matchups aren’t as heavily bet as regular-season games are, they draw enough action to force oddsmakers to adjust the lines.

In five of the eight games played, the betting line shifted. Four of the five teams that saw the line move in their direction won outright. Those same squads went 3-1-1 against the spread.

Six games are on the slate Thursday, and the lines for the two early games, Pelicans-Heat (4 p.m. ET) and Celtics-Knicks (4:30 p.m. ET), have already moved.

Should bettors follow the line movement? Let’s use Bet Labs to find out.
