Wiseguys had another profitable day on Tuesday. They cashed two of their three dog plays (Marlins +104 and White Sox +125) for +1.29 units won. After a brutal start to the MLB season in which public favorites have cashed at a historic rate, wiseguys hope this marks the beginning of the regression wave.


After analyzing Wednesday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed four MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:05 p.m., 8:15 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. ET.

Data as of 2:45 p.m. ET

Colorado Rockies at Philadelphia Phillies Over 8.5

7:05 p.m. ET

It’s a misconception that sharps and squares are always on different sides. Although it’s somewhat rare, it does happen. Take this total, for instance. The Over is getting 72% of bets but 80% of dollars, indicating both public and smart money.

Wiseguys at Pinnacle hammered the Over 8.5 twice. Then pro players at CRIS steamed the Over 8. This is especially notable considering that Pinnacle and CRIS are two of your sharpest offshore books. An added bonus for Over backers: the wind is blowing heavily (10 mph) out to straightaway center.
