About NBA Consensus
Betting on the NBA is one of the toughest challenges for sports bettors and having accurate NBA consensus data is mission-critical to cover the spread at a sportsbook. At Odds Shark (and many other sites where we gather consensus votes and expert picks), thousands of expert opinions and NBA wagering predictions are offered on every game. It provides a solid look into the public’s betting habits on the games, information you can use to go with the flow or bet against the flow.

You read that 77.4 percent of the basketball betting public is betting on the Celtics at -7.5 points. That means only 22.6 percent of bettors are backing the underdog Lakers. What should you do with this information and why is it important for your handicapping? There are betting strategies that involve simply betting against the NBA consensus, otherwise known as “fading the public.”
It’s a contrarian view of betting that says the public will be wrong more often than they are right, because many are casual bettors who just like to bet favorites or bet their favorite teams. However you interpret the data, knowing the NBA consensus numbers gives you critical information. Here at Odds Shark, we rank the consensus NBA picks, showing you which games the public likes best, and we also dig out which online sportsbooks boast the best wagerlines on those games.
You will also be encouraged to add your own opinion and prediction to the discussion by clicking on the matchup report links. Tell us which side of the NBA point spread or total you are picking and that tally goes into the database to be shared with the community. Together, all hoops bettors produce a definitive NBA consensus percentage representing a large cross-section of betting society. We also provide the same data for college basketball, football, hockey and baseball. So bookmark this important page and tell your friends.
