Saturday’s slate brings with it a full 15 games, seven of which start before 7:00 p.m. ET. Sharps, however, are finding some of their favorite plays on a couple of tonight’s later starts.
Blue Jays-Rockies and Mets-Diamondbacks have both drawn considerable professional action on their over/unders.

Toronto Blue Jays @ Colorado Rockies
9:10 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 11.5 to 11)
The thin air at Coors Field has this game boasting the highest total on today’s slate at 11. While the line has been there for most of its time on the board, the earliest books actually had it listed at 11.5 before it was bet down — in large part by sharps.
Only 32% of bettors have hit the under, so any sort of line fall is probably the result of pro money. Speaking of money: Those 32% of tickets have accounted for 67% of actual money on the total. That means the under is attracting much bigger bets — the ones more likely to be made by sharps.
Sports Insights Bet Signals confirm the sharp under betting, as they’ve triggered two moves on the under and have shown no signs of professional action on the over.
New York Mets @ Arizona Diamondbacks
10:10 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Over (moved from 7 to 7.5)
Generally, public bettors are attracted to overs more than unders. That should come as no surprise, as it’s far more fun to root for hits and runs than groundouts. In games featuring big-name pitchers, though, the public is quick to change its approach.
This matchup with Jake deGrom vs. Zack Greinke is a perfect example.
Only 44% of bettors have hit the over, making it the only one with less than a 45% backing on today’s board. Despite that, the total has ticked up from 7 to 7.5.
Five Sports Insights Bet Signals — more than any other play has drawn today — have hit this over with none going the other way.
