Saturday Sharp Report: Wiseguys Still Hammering Baseball on Moving Day
Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports
Golf might take the spotlight today, but sharp bettors have yet to lose any focus on baseball this weekend. Four games in particular have drawn sharp action, including one starting in just a few hours.
Identified with tools from a Sports Insights Pro membership, here are the games that sharps are hammering on Saturday.
St. Louis Cardinals (-108) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks, Under 7
2:10 p.m. ET
One of the most heavily bet games today, this one has also seen by far the most sharp action. Sixty-nine percent of the public is unsurprisingly going with the 6-1 team as a slight favorite, and 65% have taken the over given the low total.
Sharps clearly see it a bit differently.
The Cardinals have gone from -105 to -108 and the total has dropped from 7.5 to 7, each behind four non-conflicting bet signals.
San Francisco Giants (+114) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
6:05 p.m. ET
This NL West matchup has seen more line movement than any other game today. Despite 56% of bettors taking LA, the Dodgers have fallen all the way from -165 to -126.
Only one bet signal has been triggered so far, but given the drastic reverse line movement, you can be confident that wiseguys are backing the Giants in this one.
Toronto Blue Jays-Texas Rangers Under 8.5
8:05 p.m. ET
With 53% of bettors taking the under, this may not jump out as a sharp play at first glance. But who said it’s impossible for sharps to agree with the public?
Behind 90% of under dollars and steam moves at YouWager and ABC, this total has dropped a full run from its opening number, indicating that sharps are certainly on the under.
Oakland A’s (-109) at Los Angeles Angels
9:07 p.m. ET
For the second night in a row, sharps are riding the Oakland train. After blowing a 6-0 lead last night, the A’s opened as +111 dogs today. They’ve only received 38% of moneyline bets to this point, but behind 76% of dollars and a steam move from Pinnacle, they’re now listed as -109 favorites.
