- What are the sharp picks for Tuesday night's MLB slate?
- We take a look at how pros are betting the Brewers vs. Pirates.
Based on current over/unders, Tuesday’s MLB slate is expected to provide plenty of high-scoring games, including Brewers vs. Pirates.
At the time of writing, the Brewers-Pirates over/under sits at 10, one of seven matchups with a double-digit total.
Recreational bettors overwhelmingly root for exciting games with plenty of scoring, so it’s not at all surprising to see 12 of today’s 14 games with more tickets hitting the over than the under.
Sharps, on the other hand, don’t care about the potential for scoring — all that matters is value.
And it doesn’t take long to determine just how the professionals are betting tonight’s Brewers vs. Pirates matchup.
Brewers vs. Pirates Sharp Betting Pick
7:05 p.m. ET | Josh Lindblom vs. Derek Holland
The Brewers opened as -145 road favorites against the Pirates and have ballooned up to -172 thanks to big bets landing on Milwaukee.
The Action Network’s public betting data is reporting 53% of bets backing the Brew Crew, but those tickets account for a whopping 76% of all money wagered on the moneyline.
In addition, Sports Insights’ Bet Signals are reporting three Steam Moves on the Brewers, citing three specific waves of sharp action hitting the market and forcing oddsmakers to make adjustments in reaction.
Therefore, it’s reasonable to conclude that large wagers from respected bettors are the reason that Milwaukee’s price has steadily climbed throughout the day.
