  • Sharp bettors swept their Saturday plays, going 3-0 on three totals.
  • Sunday's board isn't littered with sharp action, as only two games feature particularly sharp angles: Giants-D-backs and Astros-Dodgers.

Wiseguys kicked off the weekend with a nice little sweep on Saturday, going 3-0 on three over/under plays.

Despite the full slate of games, sharp action has been a tad more scarce on Sunday, as today’s sharpest angles feature only two plays, one of which comes on another total, the other on a side.

San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks

  • Sharp angle: Over 8.5
  • First pitch: 4:10 p.m. ET

Here’s a case where the public side is actually the same as the sharp side. Sixty-nine percent of bettors are on this over, accounting for 91% of dollars wagered on the total. Sharpies have also steamed this total at ABC and Bovada, and the total has risen from 8 to 8.5 as a result.

Houston Astros at Los Angeles Dodgers

  • Sharp angle: LAD -115
  • First pitch: 4:10 p.m ET

In baseball, allowing 14 runs is not a winning strategy. Perhaps that’s why only 29% of bettors are behind the Dodgers this afternoon following their 14-0 loss last night.

Sharp bettors are among that 29%, however. The Dodgers have moved from -107 to -115 at Pinnacle behind 47% of dollars and five steam moves from books across the market.
