Memorial Day weekend has come and gone. We’re down to the championship series in both the NHL and NBA. The dog days of summer are closing in. You know what that means: all baseball, all the time.
After analyzing Tuesday’s 15-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 p.m., 10:05 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. ET.
All data as of 3:15 p.m. ET
Washington Nationals at Baltimore Orioles (-114)
7:05 p.m. ET
The Public sees Jeremy Hellickson’s 2.13 ERA and 30-22 Washington against Dylan Bundy’s 4.45 ERA and 17-37 Baltimore and naturally says Nats all day. But the sharps are united behind the Orioles. Baltimore is getting only 22% of bets but 41% of dollars, a profitable bets vs. dollars discrepancy. Wiseguys have been hammering Baltimore all day, triggering five separate steam and reverse line moves. This overload of sharp action has pushed Baltimore from a +107 dog to a -114 favorite. Two added bonuses for O’s backers: Jeff Nelson is behind the plate, a profitable home ump, and American League teams have crushed National League teams since 2005.
