  • Sharps are betting three MLB games on Tuesday, headlined by Washington Nationals-Philadelphia Phillies (7:05 p.m. ET), with Washington listed as a -114 favorite and an over/under of 7
  • Wiseguys are also betting Tampa Bay Rays-Atlanta Braves (7:35 p.m. ET) and Seattle Mariners-San Diego Padres (10:10 p.m. ET)

Wiseguys started their week off right last night, going 2-1 (+1.49 units) with their Monday plays. Sharps will look to stay hot and spend another night in Green Dot City on Tuesday.

After analyzing Tuesday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:05 p.m., 7:35 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. ET.

Betting Terms to Know

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Line Freeze: When one side is getting heavy betting but the line won’t budge, indicating sharp liability on the other side.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay sportsbooks in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
