Pro players cashed their Mariners-Jays Under yesterday, but struck out with their other three plays. Wiseguys hate losing two units in one night, but they know baseball is the ultimate grinder sport. It’s a six-month season, more than 2,400 games. The ups and downs will be volatile, but the blueprint never changes. Stay the course and think long term.
After analyzing Thursday’s 10-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three MLB bets that professional players are focusing on, including games that start at 7:05, 7:10 and 8:40 p.m. ET.
All data as of 2:30 p.m. ET
Boston Red Sox (+129) at New York Yankees
7:05 p.m. ET
The Yankees have already won the first two games of the series. The public sees CC Sabathia (1.39 ERA) against Eduardo Rodriguez (5.29 ERA) and likes the Bronx Bombers to complete the sweep tonight. However, despite receiving 62% of bets, New York has fallen from -153 to -140. This was caused by wiseguys at Pinnacle steaming the Red Sox +133. Mookie Betts and company also enjoy a profitable bets vs. dollars discrepancy — they’re getting only 36% of bets but 49% of dollars. Another cherry on top: Boston is a road divisional dog with reverse line movement and a high total, a profitable spot since 2005.
