NBA public betting, line movement September 3
Patrick Everson

Kawhi Leonard and Jamal Murray collide when the Clippers face the Nuggets in Thursday's Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. The SuperBook has Los Angeles an 8.5-point favorite.

NBA betting odds are on the board and getting attention for a pair of conference semifinal playoff games Thursday night. The Denver Nuggets, fresh off an exhilarating series against the Utah Jazz, meet the Los Angeles Clippers in prime time, preceded by Game 3 of the Toronto Raptors-Boston Celtics series.

The SuperBook at Westgate provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Thursday’s matchups.

NBA line movement

Denver rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to Utah, winning the final three games to advance to the Western Conference semis. The Nuggets finished with an 80-78 victory in Game 7 Tuesday night. Meanwhile, Los Angeles went six games with Dallas, capped by a 111-97 win Sunday. The SuperBook opened the Clippers -8 and moved to -8.5 by Wednesday afternoon for Thursday’s 9 p.m. ET tipoff.

Defending NBA champion Toronto is already on the ropes in the Eastern Conference semis, trailing Boston 2-0 after a 102-99 loss Tuesday. The Raptors opened -1 at The SuperBook for Game 3, then the game spent a couple of hours at pick ‘em Wednesday before going back to Toronto -1 for a 6:30 p.m. ET start.

NBA public betting

"We're getting early bets on the Raptors -1, some parlay money on the Over, but not a lot," Osterman said of action on the first game, before moving on to the nightcap. "The Clippers are getting bet pretty well on the moneyline. Not much on anything else yet."

The Consensus, often indicative of where the public money is flowing, shows some early belief in the underdog Nuggets to cover the spread. As of Wednesday night, Denver was landing 60 percent of Consensus picks against L.A., while desperate Toronto was drawing 61 percent of early picks against Boston.
