  • Although I'm making my MLB Sharp Report debut, you're in good hands.
  • Sharp bettors have found value in three small favorites/dogs Saturday night, all in the National League.

Sharp bettors keep plugging along after the All-Star break and are making up for early season losses. With nearly all of Saturday’s MLB games starting at night, they’ve been patiently picking out value on small favorites/underdogs.

After analyzing the remaining 15-game slate, I’ve identified three bets that sharp money has focused on (all bets risk one unit).

Philadelphia Phillies at Cincinnati Reds

  • Sharp angle: Reds (+112)
  • First pitch 6:40 p.m. ET

Matt Harvey is not getting any love for Cincinnati, as the Reds are the least popular bet of the day with just 18% of tickets. At four of the squarest offshore sportsbooks around the market, Cincy is getting even less support with just 10% of the bets. Philadelphia is clearly the public darling on Saturday night.

Despite the extremely lopsided support, the line has barely budged off the opening number. There was even a small reverse-line move toward the Reds overnight, signaling that sharp money is picking its spot on Cincinnati.
