Sharps Betting Jays-Indians Under and Four Other Saturday MLB Games
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports
Sharps haven’t let the hype of the Stanley Cup and NBA Playoffs deter their focus from baseball, as they’ve been all over today’s full MLB slate.
After analyzing Saturday’s slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve found five MLB games drawing heavy sharp action, with start times of 4:10, 6:10, 7:15 and 9:10 p.m. ET.
All spreads as of 1 p.m. ET.
Toronto Blue Jays-Cleveland Indians Under 7
4:10 p.m. ET
Wiseguys have been steadily betting this under since the total opened Friday afternoon. Only 44% of the total tickets are on the under, but it has attracted 93% of dollars, triggering a Pinnacle steam move and causing the line to fall from 7.5 to as far as 6.5 at some books.
Corey Kluber is on the mound for Cleveland, which should limit the Blue Jays’ scoring, but perhaps more significant to this total is Toronto’s Jamie Garcia. Last season, in games when the Indians faced a left-handed pitcher, the under went 36-20-4.
Tampa Bay Rays (-128) vs. Philadelphia Phillies
6:10 p.m. ET
Tampa dropped the first game of the interleague series, but sharps seem to be expecting Chris Archer and the Rays to bounce back today. While they’ve received only 39% of bets, they’ve moved from -110 to -128 at the time of writing behind 51% of dollars.
Los Angeles Angels-Kansas City Royals Under 7.5
7:15 p.m. ET
Three different books have seen sharp action on this under, dropping the total a full run from 8.5 to 7.5.
For what it’s worth, the under has hit in nine of Kansas City’s 12 games so far this season.
The Action Network’s over/under guru Matt Zylbert made a passionate case for betting the under here.
Arizona Diamondbacks-Los Angeles Dodgers Under 7
9:10 p.m. ET
Keeping with the theme today, wiseguys are hitting another under. Only 26% of bettors are backing this one, but 58% of dollars and two bet signals have made the sharp side pretty clear.
Though the total hasn’t left its opener of 7, the juice has inched toward the under, making it possible that this could drop to 6.5 by first pitch.
Oakland A’s (-103) at Seattle Mariners
9:10 p.m. ET
If you were hoping to grab Oakland at plus-money, that opportunity may have passed you by. After being listed as high as +119 at Pinnacle, the A’s are now down to -103. Only 39% of bettors are taking Oakland, but it seems that sharps at ABC are among that minority as they hammered the A’s +100.
