The NBA slate is chock full of action on Monday night and bettors seem united in who they are backing. The Miami Heat are seeing the biggest backing from the public, but there are a few games where the money is heavily one-sided. Let’s take a look at the NBA public consensus for Monday night’s games.

There are three games where the public is heavily on one side. The Heat are bringing in 89% of the total handle on the spread in their game against the Thunder. Miami has been inconsistent all year long, but that isn’t scaring bettors away on Monday. The Bulls and Mavericks are also bringing in a lot of money on the spread line, both accounting for 78% of the total handle.

Surprisingly, the public is split on Lakers-Wizards. Despite the fact that the Lakers are a title contender and the Wizards are one of the worst teams in the NBA, the public is still split 52-48 on the Lakers and Wizards spread line, respectively. Anthony Davis’ continued absence as he deals with injury issues is likely playing a big factor into how the public is betting this game.

When it comes to totals, the public almost always favors the over. They are taking that mindset to the next level for Monday’s game between the Trail Blazers and Suns. On a total of 230, 83% of tickets and 93% of the handle is on the over. With stars like Damian Lillard, Devin Booker, and Chris Paul, it’s not hard to see why the public is all-in on the over.
