Wednesday Sharp Report: Pros Betting Red Sox-Phillies, Two Other Games

Aug 15, 2018 10:05 AM EDT
  • Wiseguys went 3-1 with their Tuesday night plays.
  • Sharp action is driving massive reverse line movement on three home teams tonight.

Wiseguys spent last night in Green Dot City, going 3-1 with their Tuesday plays. Sharps were able to cash all three of their totals and almost had a clean sweep, but the Royals (31% bets, +120) blew a 5-4 lead in the eighth inning and lost, 6-5, to the Jays.

Sharps will look to keep the good vibes going tonight.
