All data as of 1 p.m. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.
Seattle Mariners-Detroit Tigers Under 9
4:10 p.m. ET (Game 1)
The over in this matchup has attracted 65% of bettors, likely due to Marco Gonzales’ 5.19 ERA this season. But 44% percent of over/under dollars, along with two bet signals, have come in on the under.
As a result, the under juice has gone from -105 to -115, an indication that this total could drop to 8.5 by first pitch.
San Diego Padres (+101) vs. St. Louis Cardinals, Under 7.5
8:40 p.m. ET
Wiseguys have targeted this matchup for two plays, landing on both the Padres and the under.
Only 29% of bettors have taken San Diego, but the Padres have dropped from +110 to +101 behind 42% of moneyline dollars. The total has yet to move from 7.5, but with 74% of dollars coming from just 39% of bets, sharp money is clearly backing the under.
Minnesota Twins (+114) at Los Angeles Angels
9:07 p.m. ET
The Twins rallied for three runs in the ninth inning to steal a 5-4 win in LA last night, and sharps are expecting another Minnesota victory tonight.
The Twins are only getting 37% of bets, but that sharp action has brought them down from +135 to +114.
