With no NBA tonight and the final game of the college basketball season tipping off at 9:20 p.m. ET, a loaded Monday MLB slate is drawing major attention from both public and professional bettors. According to our number of bets statistic, bettors have not been shy about getting down on today’s baseball games.

 

With a large handle being driven primarly by public bettors, sharps have found multiple opportunites to take advantage of recreational action by buying back the opposite sides of those matchups. In fact, tonight’s Indians-Angels (10:07 p.m. ET) matchup is already attracting wiseguy money in early Monday betting.

Cleveland opened as a -135 favorite and 64% of moneyline bettors have already taken the Indians. However, an incredible 98% of actual dollars wagered on the moneyline have instead come in on the Angels, moving the line down to -116.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have already triggered a Reverse Line Move on Los Angeles at +110, revealing that sharp action is backing the dog.

With such lopsided betting trends and Bet Signal triggers taking Los Angeles, this game is setting up as a true sharp vs. public showdown.
