Five games are already completed or underway, but that hasn’t stopped wiseguys from picking apart the rest of today’s slate. Value is value and sharp money is wreaking havoc on lines for each of the remaining games on the schedule.

 

After analyzing Thursday’s 10-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed four MLB bets that professional players are focusing on, including games that start at 6:10, 7:05, 7:07 and 8:15 p.m. ET.

All data as of 3:30 p.m. ET

Seattle Mariners (+104) at Cleveland Indians

6:10 p.m. ET

Despite receiving less than 30% of bets, Seattle has moved from +120 to +104 since opening. Why would the Mariners payout get smaller if the vast majority of bets are on Cleveland? Because sharps got down hard on the M’s, creating big liability. Wiseguys hit Seattle three different times across the offshore market (+120 at Greek, +105 at SIA and +100 at Sportsbook). Meanwhile, the Mariners also enjoy one of the day’s sharpest bets vs. dollars discrepancies. They’re only getting 29% bets but 52% dollars, a sign that heavy wiseguy money is on their side.
