- Despite a stunning loss to the Clippers in Game 5, the Warriors are 10-point favorites for tonight's Game 6 (10 p.m. ET, ESPN).
- There's no consensus among professional bettors on the double-digit point spread, but sharps strongly disagree with casual bettors regarding the right side of the over/under.
After a historic upset of the Golden State Warriors in Game 5, the Los Angeles Clippers will hope to ride the momentum tonight to force a potential Game 7 on Sunday.
Despite the stunning loss, the Warriors are still double-digit road favorites against the Clips, suggesting that both oddsmakers and bettors are expecting Golden State to finish off the series tonight.
While there’s nothing interesting to report regarding professional action and the large point spread, sharps are aligned on the same side of this total.
In fact, a closer look at The Action Network’s betting tools indicates that even though the sharps are in agreement, recreational bettors disagree regarding where the value lies with this over/under.
Let’s break this down in more detail.
Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers Sharp Report
10 p.m. ET | ESPN
The Warriors-Clippers over/under opened at a consensus of 234.5 across the market and 64% of bets on the total have played the over.
However, while the majority of bettors are expecting this to go over, 66% of dollars wagered have instead come in on the under.
With steady money flowing under, oddsmakers have dropped this total down to 231.5. And according to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, the money is not simply one-sided toward the under, it’s also coming from respected bettors.
On two separate occasions sharp money hit the under, explaining why this total has trended toward the current number.
Based on the data, professionals don’t have much of an opinion regarding the right side of this point spread, but sharps strongly disagree with casual bettors on how to play the total.
