(1:04 AM EST) Update: Indiana Pacers Win Total was taken down. Updates to come.
Many of you have embarked on your sports betting journey as a fun hobby or added level of entertainment when betting on any given game on any given night. Sports betting is exhilarating and brings highs and lows many have experienced now as it continues to grow across the country. However, some of you have seen this thrilling and fun activity turn into anger when things go south. And some take that to the next level by directing their anger straight toward their bookmaker.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, an opportunity has presented itself whether you are trying to make some money on an NBA Season Prop for fun, to get back at the bookie, or to cement a 115% ROI over a 5-month period. This opportunity can be found at Bovada Sportsbook in the NBA Season Props tab which I have linked here, and is ready for the taking.
The Play: Indiana Pacers Under 46.5 Regular Season Wins (+115) - 2.5 Units
Yeah, you are reading it right. The rebuilding Indiana Pacers would need to grab a 47-35 record by April 9, 2023 in order for this bet to miss. I totally understand that they are outperforming expectations with a 5-6 start to the year led by Tyrese Haliburton and exciting rookie Bennedict Mathurin. But this line finished around 23 to 24 at most sportsbooks when the season kicked off three weeks ago and there is nothing to indicate that the line should jump up by over 22 wins even with a 5-6 start.
This line could totally be an error. This could be the rare case of seeing the bookmakers slip up beyond belief. Do you believe that the 5-6 Indiana Pacers live regular season win total should be sitting near these teams here:
Atlanta Hawks: 46.5
Brooklyn Nets: 45.5
Dallas Mavericks: 48.5
Golden State Warriors: 48.5
Los Angeles Clippers: 48.5
Miami Heat: 45.5
Minnesota Timberwolves: 45.5
New Orleans Pelicans: 46.5
Philadelphia 76ers: 47.5
Portland Trailblazers: 45.5
Toronto Raptors: 45.5
Utah Jazz (10-3 Start to the Season): 41.5
I mean what are we doing? And if that is not enough, IT IS AT PLUS MONEY!!! I love Haliburton, Eggs, and Jalen Smith, but I think the entire NBA world would be shocked to see this team that is actively shopping Myles Turner and Buddy Hield go for anything more than a strong look at the 2023 NBA Draft. Give me the under here, and I won't be looking back.
I hope that this find has been helpful and that we can take advantage of this line as bettors while we still can. If you enjoyed the article, feel free to subscribe to Happy Hour Sports and never miss a post! We have plenty of articles for betting on:
