Sunday sharp report: 

5 Dimes lives up to their name. Many of my highest rollers bet substantial amounts of money there and always get paid. They are also the #1 book for added rotation games, niche and obscure betting as well. 5 Dimes is fully vetted. The official book of high rollers!

Biggest public consensus in term of percentage of bets: Memphis Grizzlies; Drake 

Most lopsided bets in term of percentage of money and biggest sportsbook liabilities: Toronto Raptors, Memphis Grizzlies; Drake, Houston Cougars 

Sharp versus square metrics AKA pros versus Joes: Portland, Denver; Evansville 

Biggest line moves with opening odds followed by current odds: NY Knicks opened +1.5 now -1.5; Manhattan opened -1 now +1.5

Free pick from Joe Duffy’s Picks is:

WASHINGTON +1 Atlanta 

Road teams playing a bad team and in a bad stretch of defensive efforts are undervalued at 126-74-1. Road favorites or small underdogs on a massive high scoring streak are 644-507-15. 

Top expert pick on today’s card is from Grandmaster Sports Handicapper Joe Duffy. He is 10-5 the last 15 and 6-2 NBA. Wise Guy underdog Sixers win in a rout. Pro Bowl winner. We rarely make picks on All-Star games, but this one is special. Three NBA led by Wise Guy and four college basketball. Yes, 8-0 in all! Get the picks now
