You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

We are still recovering from the fireworks from last night’s UCLA/Gonzaga thriller but there is too much action to ignore today. Whether you want to do your own work or just fade the public, we have you covered. In order to fade the public, or even follow them, you first have to know what they’re on. Let’s take a look at where the public money is going today.

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers -4 over Memphis Grizzlies

There is always a concern that Joel Embiid will sit on the second night of a back to back situation but bettors are not concerned today. 88% of the early wagers have been on the 76ers -4 over the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Bettors are all over the Sixers just to win as 88% of the wagers so far have come in on them at -165. Whatever the bet, the public money is all over the Philadelphia 76ers tonight.

Even at -225, bettors are seeing value as 86% of the money line bets have come in on San Diego in that market. The public is in love with Slam Diego today.

The Washington Capitals have caught the eye of the public today as 85% of the early wagers have come in on Washington. 89% of the handle is represented with those 85% so we are talking major one-sided action. It’s not just the money line as the public has confidence in the Capitals to cover the puck line as well. 86% of the handle (63% of the bets) are on Washington in that market too. You could say the public likes the Capitals over the Devils today.
