Wiseguys had a profitable Tuesday. They split their plays (2-2), but thanks to the Marlins (+165), they were able to turn a small profit overall (+0.65 units). It might not seem like much, but when you compound small winning days over the course of a six-month season, it adds up bigly in the end. Stay the course, think long term. Grinders with Blinders, always.


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, including games that start at 7:05 p.m., 7:07 p.m., 7:10 p.m. and 8:05 p.m. ET

Data as of 3 p.m. ET

Los Angeles Dodgers at Pittsburgh Pirates Under 8.5

7:05 p.m. ET

We’re seeing a classic Pros vs. Joes total play here. The public sees Dylan Ferguson making his MLB debut for the Dodgers and automatically assumes he will get lit up, leading to an easy Over. But sharps disagree. Nearly 60% of bets are going Over, but almost 60% of dollars are going Under. Wiseguys at Pinnacle and Buckeye got down on hard on the Under 8.5, which is notable considering they are two of the sharpest books on the market.
