After the excitement of a full football season, March Madness and The Masters last weekend, the sports calendar is a little quiet these days, especially during the week.
Sure, for a NASCAR junkie like myself, this is an extremely fun time. But the majority of bettors must now pivot the daily grind of sports like MLB and NBA.
And that’s not say that these leagues aren’t as fun or valuable to bet, it’s just that it’s more of a long game now as opposed to singular events, like bowl games, the NFL playoffs, the NCAA Tournament and the Masters.
In addition, MLB can be tough to keep up with on a day-to-day basis, especially with injuries and players out for rest and pitching changes, on top of trying to handicap what is happening in the baseball betting market.
But don’t worry, our MLB PRO Report was designed to do the market research leg work for you, and after checking in with today’s data, it’s clear that sharps are quietly getting down on Tuesday night’s Cubs-Brewers matchup.
Cubs vs. Brewers Pick
The Cubs opened at +125 at DraftKings Sportsbook for Tuesday night’s game against the Brewers and sharp action has pushed that number down to +117 (click here for live MLB odds), as of early afternoon.
Action Labs’ Bet Signals are reporting a Steam Move on Chicago +123, which is right in line with the trajectory of the moneyline movement that we’ve seen so far.
There’s always the chance of looming buyback — that’s simply the nature of analyzing market activity — but there’s no question that wiseguys have quietly taken a position on Chicago in this game.
