  • Wiseguys are getting down on tonight's Golden State Warriors-Toronto Raptors matchup (8 p.m. ET on TNT).
  • Toronto is listed as a 9-point favorite against Golden State, with an over/under of 223.
  • Using the tools available at The Action Network, we analyze how sharps are betting this game.

Normally, Thursdays are one of the most action-packed days of the week for sharp and recreational bettors. However, with no college football and small NBA and college hoops slates tonight, bettors are struggling to find games to get down on outside of Saints-Cowboys.

Nevertheless, sharps picked apart the small three-game NBA slate and found unique value in the marquee matchup of the night — Golden State Warriors at Toronto Raptors (8 p.m. ET on TNT).

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting, but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
