- Sharps are hitting Saturday's baseball slate on three games in particular.
- Sports Insights' Bet Signals help reveal which bets the pros are making.
With a double-header included on the slate, Saturday is offering bettors 16 baseball games from which to choose, and sharps have zoned in on a few of this evening’s matchups.
Mets-Marlins, Twins-Indians and Dodgers-Red Sox have all seen their fair share of professional action since opening, and oddsmakers have had to adjust lines as a result.

New York Mets @ Miami Marlins
6:10 p.m. ET | Noah Syndergaard (6-4, 4.38 ERA) vs. Zac Gallen (0-1, 4.50 ERA)
The NL East has been quite an interesting division this season … at least for three teams. Neither of these two are among those three, but they still have presented us with an interesting game as far as the betting market is concerned.
With a better record and Thor on the mound, the Mets have attracted three-quarters of the bets placed on this game. Despite that, they’ve fallen from -150 to -135 since opening.
As you could’ve probably guessed, sharp action has been the cause.
Three Sports Insights Bet Signals have been triggered on the Marlins, as wiseguys hit them at lines ranging from +137 to +125 to bring the line down as far as +122.
Sharp angle: Marlins (moved from +138 to +122)
Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians
7:10 p.m. ET | Jake Odorizzi (10-4, 3.15 ERA) vs. Trevor Bauer (8-6, 3.61 ERA)
Two sub-4.00 ERAs taking the hill in this AL Central matchup have most bettors going with the under, but sharps aren’t seeing it the same way.
Similar to the game above, this line has moved away from the popular side, as the total has risen from 8.5 to 9 despite 63% of bets on the under. Once again, SI Bet Signals confirm that sharps are behind the line move.
Four moves on the over — with no conflicting signals on the under — have confirmed the professional action, as has the bet-vs.-dollar discrepancy. The 37% of over bettors have generated 62% of actual money being wagered on the total.
Sharp angle: Over (moved from 8.5 to 9)
Los Angeles Dodgers @ Boston Red Sox
7:10 p.m. ET | Ross Stripling (3-3, 3.79 ERA) vs. Chris Sale (3-8, 4.04 ERA)
A similar story is taking place in tonight’s Dodgers-Red Sox game, but on the opposite bet.
This one opened with a total of 9.5, and 68% of bettors have taken the over, but the current total is down to 9 despite the under’s lack of popularity. In this case, three bet signals on the under at 9.5 have explained the move.
For what it’s worth this under also fits the Bet Labs Pro System, Contrarian Unders for Winning Teams, good for +195.2 units since 2005 and a 7.8% return on investment.
