Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

On a Saturday highlighted by the Kentucky Derby, NBA and Stanley Cup Playoffs, plus some combination of bourbon and tequila, baseball has taken somewhat of a backseat for most sports fans. Sharp bettors are not most sports fans, however.

Here are the three MLB teams they’re backing this evening.

All data as of 3 p.m. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.

San Francisco Giants (+133) at Atlanta Braves

7:10 p.m. ET

Coming off last night’s 9-4 win, the Giants are getting only 29% of moneyline bets tonight. But with those bets accounting for 41% of the money wagered, it’s highly likely that wiseguys are among the minority taking San Francisco.

Add in this morning’s Reverse Line Move and you can be confident you’re on the sharp side if you’re playing the Giants.

Baltimore Orioles (+129) at Oakland Athletics

9:05 p.m. ET

Another fairly unpopular team tonight, the Orioles have attracted only 37% of bettors. Despite that, they’ve fallen from +135 to +129 at Bookmaker with help from a 5Dimes Steam Move.

Seattle Mariners (-105) vs. Los Angeles Angels

9:10 p.m. ET

The Mariners were shut out in the first game of this series yesterday, but sharps seem to be expecting a bounce back from Seattle tonight. With 41% of bettors accounting for 57% of dollars backing them, the Mariners have hopped the fence from +105 to -105.

Throw in this bet signal and Seattle checks off just about every box a sharp bettor could ask for.
