NBA public betting, line movement, sharp money for August 1
Patrick Everson

Anthony Davis and the Lakers beat the Clippers on opening night in the NBA Bubble. The Lakers opened as 3.5-point favorites against the Raptors and moved to -4 for a Saturday night game.

NBA betting odds are on the board for Day 3 inside the NBA Bubble, with five games on the Saturday slate in Orlando. Among the highlights is the defending NBA champion Raptors squaring off against the Lakers.

CG Technology sportsbooks risk analyst Dave Sharapan provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Saturday’s matchups. Covers will update this action report with NBA sharp picks vs. public bets and line movement throughout the day.

NBA line movement

The Lakers are coming off a 103-101 win over the Clippers on Thursday’s opening night in the NBA Bubble. CG Tech books opened the Lakers -3.5 and moved to -4 Friday for Saturday’s 8:30 p.m. ET nightcap.

The Clippers and Pelicans also return for their second game of the restart, a 6 p.m. ET matchup. Los Angeles is holding steady as a 5.5-point favorite at CG Tech. The 76ers-Pacers 7 p.m. ET tilt opened Philadelphia -4, moved to -5, back to -4, then back to -5 Friday.

Also, generally speaking, bettors are firing like mad on Overs since the NBA restart began.

“The story of NBA Bubble betting so far is the totals being bet one way – Over, and then Over, and then Over again,” Sharapan said. “Totals are moving 5 to 8 points, like it’s the Showtime Era again.”

NBA sharp money

“Sharp play took Pacers +5, so we went back to -4,” Sharapan said of the back-and-forth movement on the Sixers-Pacers line.

NBA public betting

No surprise that public betting is on the Lakers so far.

“No significant wagers, just a steady flow of Laker money,” Sharapan said, before pointing to yet another total on the move. “The total was 213.5, we took a limit play from a stranger on the Over, and it’s now 215.”

Pelicans-Clippers has minimal action, but Sharapan said there are far more parlays on the Clippers than the Pelicans. He also expects to see some New Orleans money Saturday and perhaps a line drop.

Sixers-Pacers is Pros vs. Joes, with the public playing the Sixers -4. Public bettors are also on the Over, with the total opening at 211 and rising to 216. Sharapan said the Heat-Nuggets total went from 210 to 212.5 in the day’s first game, a 1 p.m. ET tipoff.
