Coming into the 2018 season, expectations for the Braves were not particularly high. After finishing 2017 at 72-90, they were given a win total of 73.5, the sixth lowest in the Majors. To say they’ve outperformed expectations thus far would be an understatement.
At 35-24, Atlanta has won 14.8 units for bettors, making them the most profitable team in the league. Naturally, public perception of the Braves has changed quite a bit over the past two months. In fact, with 78% of bettors behind them tonight (10 p.m. ET at San Diego), the Braves are the most popular play on the board.
Despite that, Atlanta has moved from -115 to +100 tonight in San Diego. Why, you ask?
Sharps have been hammering the Padres all day, triggering four Sports Insights Bet Signals.
You’ll notice that three bet signals have also been triggered on the under. Only 31% of bettors are expecting this game to stay under 7.5 runs, but those bettors are accounting for 71% of dollars, and the under has been juiced from -110 to -115 as a result.
