NBA Smart Money on Spreads
Odds and information as of Wednesday afternoon.
Sacramento Kings vs. Chicago Bulls
8 p.m. ET
The smart money is on the Kings to cover tonight against Chicago. About 67% of the smart money is on Sacramento at +6.
The Action Network’s proprietary betting models have also detected an edge on the Kings to cover. They think the Kings should be just 4.2-point underdogs — not six. That’s good for a more than 4% edge — a B- grade.
For reference, we require at least a B grade in order to tail our model picks blindly. The sharp and big money action on Scaramento’s spread add another data point, though.
Sharp Angle: Kings +6 or better.
Houston Rockets vs. Phoenix Suns
9 p.m. ET
