Wiseguys are looking to bounce back today after swinging and missing on their two Thursday home dogs. There will be ups and downs throughout the year, but sharps embrace volume betting and keep grinding. They know that by sticking to plus-money dogs and avoiding big favorites, they only have to win 45% of the time to make money this baseball season.


After analyzing Friday’s 9-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed five MLB bets that professional players are focusing on, starting at 4:10, 7:05, 8:10 and 10:07 p.m. ET.

All data as of 2:20 p.m. ET

Atlanta Braves – Colorado Rockies Under 9.5 

4:10 p.m. ET

Taking an Under at Coors Field is always a scary proposition. But sharps are fearless. Total bets are split 50/50 but more than 75% of dollars are on the Under, a clear indication of smart money. After opening at 10.5, the total has fallen down to 9.5 (in a vacuum, a total shouldn’t move an inch if the bets are split). Wiseguys triggered four separate Steam Moves on the Under. And even though the total kept falling, they still kept hitting it, which signals supreme wiseguy confidence in the Under. A big reason is the weather. The forecast calls for snow and wind blowing in heavy from center.
