What is an NBA Consensus Pick?

When someone is asking for an NBA consensus pick, they are asking which side is the public betting. In sports betting there are two different type of bettors, public and sharp.

Public bettors are regular people who bet games they are interested from time to time. Sharps are experts who use sports betting as a way to make a living. Advanced bettors are interested in NBA public betting data or consensus picks because they want to know which side to avoid.

The public often is on the wrong side of a bet. There are many reasons why the public isn't good at making picks a few which include little time preparing, they don't have good data, or they are making bets with their gut. For those reasons sharp bettors want to know exactly how "public" a certain pick is before they lay down a wager.

How to Fade NBA Public Betting

When you hear some one talking about fading the public they are talking about looking at the consensus pick, and betting the other side. The strategy behind this is that novice bettors aren't very successful bettors and don't fully know what they are doing. Finding the consensus pick and then fading, or betting the other side, is supposedly an easy way to profit.

Fading the public is one of the most talked about methods of betting on the NBA it may not be as profitable as you would think. Ideally you should never just blindly look at a consensus pick and bet the other side, but you should use this method on a case by case basis. Data shows that there is some success to fading the public but the conditions have to be right.

As the NBA becomes more and more of a mainstream sport the casual bettors are starting to place more bets. An increase in public bettors leads to more success of fading the public, especially for sports like the NBA where many casual fans aren't actually watching the games. Most casual fans get their NBA info from recap shows and highlight accounts on social media, which can be a negative for sports betting. It can be hard to know if a team is covering the spread if you aren't completely locked in and historically public bettors love winnings teams, but may not understand if they regularly cover.

Fading the public can be a great NBA betting strategy to use for high profile games where a lot of public tickets are going to be placed. It may not make sense to fade the public in a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic because casual bettors most likely will be staying away from that game. If the New Orleans Pelicans are playing the Utah Jazz in primetime and the world wide leader in sports is playing Zion Williamson dunk highlights for ninety minutes on a loop it may be helpful to see if that highlight package has influenced the consensus pick even though the Pelicans aren't a great team against the spread.

How to Bet NBA Public Picks

The best way to bet NBA public picks is to fade the public for high profile games, or on teams that don't cover. In our NBA public betting table above you can see we also have added the against the spread record. Take a look at which team the consensus pick is, then look to see which side the experts are picking, and last look at the against the spread record.

If the consensus pick is all over one team, while the experts are on another, and the public is backing a team that rarely covers the spread then you have found a great pick. Using our NBA public betting data this way will help you win more bets and take advantage of the sportsbook!
