Thursday Sharp Report: Professionals Hitting Two Sides, One Total

May 24, 2018 3:36 PM EDT

Pro players swung and missed on Wednesday, losing all three dog and total plays. Seasoned wiseguys are used to the volatility of baseball betting, knowing it’s a long season and there will be good and bad days. But the bad beats, such as the Jays (+106) last night, are hard to stomach. Toronto led, 3-1, entering the ninth before Tyler Clippard gave up four runs, resulting in a 5-4 loss.

 

After analyzing Thursday’s small eight-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 6:10 p.m., 7:10 p.m. and 8:05 p.m. ET.

All data as of 3:15 p.m. ET

Houston Astros – Cleveland Indians Over 8

6:10 p.m. ET

Sharps have been eyeing this contrarian Over all day. Despite nearly 75% taking the Under, the total has remained frozen at 8. This indicates a reluctance on behalf of the books to drop the line to 7.5 and hand out extra value to sharp Over backers. The juice has also risen from 8 Over -110 to 8 Over -114, another sign of Over liability. Wiseguys hammered Over 8 four separate times, first at YouWager, then 5Dimes, Pinnacle and SIA.
