Today's Sharp Bets In NBA, NHL & College Basketball

The sports betting world never stops, and every day there is a certain side or total that professional bettors seem to love. We'll take a look here at which have the biggest position on them in terms of where the money is going in contrast to the ticket percentage, otherwise known as the "sharp bet of the day" in each sport. Sharps usually gain an edge by taking a side or total that will get bet heavily and getting the best of the number.

NBA Sharp Bet: Spurs +7 at Lakers

The sharps are riding with the Spurs in tonight's NBA action against the Los Angeles Lakers. A whopping 83% of the total money wagered on the game is on the Spurs, but just 41% of tickets are on that side. In contrast, just 17% of the money is on the Lakers, but a large 59% of tickets are backing that side. That means we have a large 42% "Pro-Money Advantage" on the Spurs, by taking the percentage of money wagered and subtracting the bet percentage.

Tickets on the Spurs are worth more money overall than those on the Lakers, so we know where the big money is going. We have already seen this line move in favor of the Spurs, showing that the respected money is on their side rather than the public in this matchup.

This is a tough one to bet in my opinion, but the sharps tend to like the Spurs. L.A. has dominated this matchup this year, winning all three of the previous games and blowing the Spurs out in two of those. Perhaps this is the spot to take San Antonio because it doesn't want to get swept. As always in the NBA, please check the injury report before you bet as players are ruled out minutes before tip-off now, making it extremely hard to bet.

College Basketball Sharp Bet: Texas A&M +4.5 at Auburn

The best side to be on is the sharp side of those, and with BetQL, you'll always have the chance to swim with the sharps and cash in large this college basketball season. Today, that means taking the Texas A&M Aggies vs. the Auburn Tigers in an SEC showdown.

A huge 90% of the money is on the Aggies here, but just 40% of the total tickets are on that side. That means that those tickets are very expensive, and a whole lot of high-rollers are laying down the cash with them. In contrast, only about 10% of the money has been wagered on the Tigers as of this writing, but 60% of tickets have been placed taking them to cover. That means those tickets aren't worth a lot of money. That gives us a 50% pro-money advantage on the Aggies, making them the sharp side.

This is one of my personal favorite sides of the night. The line has already crashed down from +6.5 to +4.5, and the money is flying in on the Aggies. They have the same strengths as Auburn, which can negate any advantage for the Tigers, so I think this game will be very close, as do the sharps.

NHL Sharp Bet: Canucks +145 at Kraken

Let's head over to the ice for the final sharp play of the night. There is a ridiculous amount of value to be found in hockey, and if you have been following us here, you have made a lot of money betting on the NHL. The sharps are going with Vancouver Canucks vs. the Seattle Kraken tonight. It's clear that the professional bettors are liking the Canucks here to come away with a huge win against the Kraken.

As of this writing, 79% of the money is on the Canucks to take this one, but just 41% of the total tickets. In comparison, 21% of the money is liking the Kraken to cover as a huge favorite, but a massive 59% of tickets are riding with that side here. That means that the tickets that are worth a substantially higher amount of money are siding with the Canucks in the game, as 79% of the money wagered is on just 41% of the tickets placed. I personally like the Kraken in this game, so I'll be opposite the Sharps here. Canucks are on a back-to-back while Seattle is fresh and the better team anyway.
