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

Jul 31, 2018 5:20 PM EDT
  • Pros went 2-2-1 on Monday, but thanks to a pair of plus-money dogs earned +0.5 units.
  • Wiseguys are going back to the well with tonight's Phillies-Red Sox total of 10.
  • Sharps are also eyeing a pair of low total unders.

Wiseguys kept the good vibes going last night. They split their five Monday plays 2-2-1, but thanks to the plus-money won with the Twins (+113) and the Brewers (+137), pros were able to turn a profit of a half-unit. This is the beauty of betting baseball. It’s one of the only sports in which can you split your plays but still make money. It might not seem like much, but over the course of a long six-month MLB season, half-unit days stack up bigly when it’s all said and done.

After analyzing Tuesday’s slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:10 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. ET.
