Odds as of Sunday at 9:30 a.m. ET
Death, taxes and sharps betting NBA bubble overs. The NBA’s restart is still only a few days old, but a key storyline among fans, analysts and bettors has the been the explosive scoring.
Will defense (and oddsmakers) eventually catch up? Absolutely. But when it comes to Wizards vs. Nets, wiseguys still think this over/under opened too low.
Sharps wasted no time popping this total as soon as it was available, evidenced by two steam moves triggered via Sports Insights’ Bet Signals.
This means that on two separate occasions, money from respected bettors came in on the Wizards vs. Nets over, inspiring oddsmakers to react by increasing the total from 233 to 235.
But sharps aren’t settling with just the total.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals also report three steam moves on the Nets, so it’s no surprise to see this number moving from its opener of Brooklyn -1.5 up to -3.
- Over (moved from 233 to 235)
- Nets (moved from -1.5 to -3)
