- See what side the sharp money below.
‘Tis the season for
madness high NBA totals, apparently.
Seemingly every few days, another strikingly high over/under appears on the board that sends us into the history books to find out exactly where it falls on the all-time list. In fact, of the six games in our database (since 2005) to close with a total of 245 or higher, four have come in just the past 37 days.
A fifth looks to be on track for tonight by way of Timberwolves vs. Rockets (8 p.m. ET).
At the time of writing, the total of 246.5 would put this game in a tie for third place since 2005, and would be Minnesota’s third time in the 245-plus club in its past five games. Again, there have been just six such games over the past 14 years.
Bettors haven’t exactly fallen in love with the idea of expecting such a heavy offensive output, as just 30% have taken the over since this line opened. But it’s not just casual bettors that have found their way to this total.
