I know you probably won’t be watching baseball this afternoon — and I can’t blame you — but in case you want a little more action on top of your Masters matchups, here are the four games that have received the most sharp action on Sunday.
Tampa Bay Rays-Boston Red Sox Under 9
1:05 p.m. ET
This game didn’t get on the board until late this morning, but sharps were all over the it right away. After opening at 9.5, the total dropped to 9 in less than 15 minutes with help from a steam move at Pinnacle.
Arizona Diamondbacks-St. Louis Cardinals Under 7.5
2:15 p.m. ET
This one might look familiar to you. For the second day in a row, sharps are going with the under in this matchup. Seventy-eight percent of bettors have taken the over given the relatively low total, but 75% of over/under dollars have landed on the under. Behind two bet signals at Pinnacle, this total has dropped a half run from 8 to 7.5.
Toronto Blue Jays (-116) at Texas Rangers, Under 9
3:05 p.m. ET
Sharps have switched allegiances in this series. After backing the Rangers last night, wiseguys seem to be behind the road Blue Jays this afternoon. Toronto has received only 43% of bets, but 57% of moneyline dollars have moved them from +100 to -108.
The total has also sparked some sharp intrigue in this matchup, as 80% of dollars and a steam move at CRIS have dropped the total from 9.5 to 9.
Washington Nationals (-162) vs. New York Mets
8:08 p.m. ET
It’s somewhat of a rarity to see sharps on a -162 favorite, especially when that favorite is a generally popular public bet like the Nationals. But it appears that’s just what we have tonight, as the Nats have received 71% of moneyline dollars despite roughly 50-50 betting. Washington has also been backed by two Pinnacle steam moves to go from -145 to -162.
