Wiseguys went 1-2 with their plays on Monday. They cashed the White Sox/Reds Under 9.5 but suffered a pair of tough-luck total losses in Washington and Arizona. The Red Sox/Nats Over was a prime example of how important a half run can be on a total. Sharps hit the Over 7, causing it to rise to 7.5. The game landed on 7, meaning early bird Wiseguys pushed, while late bettors who got the Sharp Report number lost. Just as in life, timing (and shopping for the best line) is everything when it comes to betting.
After analyzing Tuesday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:10, 8:15 and 10:10 p.m. ET.
Data as of 2:45 p.m. ET. All bets risking one unit, not to win one unit. All total plays Listed Pitcher, not Action.
Tampa Bay Rays at Miami Marlins (+112)
7:10 p.m. ET
The Marlins rewarded contrarian wiseguys last night, cashing as a +125 dog with only 26% bets in the series opener. Public bettors say Miami is terrible and the Rays are due to bounce back tonight, but sharps are boarding the Jeter train once again.
Miami is getting only 23% of bets but 68% of dollars, a massive smart money discrepancy. The Marlins have also fallen from +118 to +112, indicating sharp reverse line movement in their favor.
Cleveland Indians at Kansas City Royals (+162)
8:15 p.m. ET
The Royals have been a disaster this season. They’re only a half-game up on the Orioles for the worst record in MLB (25-59, -22.44 units). But wiseguys see KC in a sneaky sharp spot tonight. They’re getting 35% of bets but 61% of dollars, indicating smart money is in their favor.
Los Angeles Angels (+101) at Seattle Mariners
10:10 p.m. ET
The Mariners are riding a seven-game winning streak, and the public sees another easy home win tonight. Not the Goodfellas. They’re buying low on the road divisional dog. The Angels are getting only 28% of bets, yet they’ve moved from +108 to +101 since opening.
Why would the Angels’ payout get smaller if the public is all over Seattle? Because sharps have been getting down hard on the Halos.
