- Sharps are betting three MLB games on Tuesday, headlined by Milwaukee Brewers-Chicago Cubs (8:05 p.m. ET), with Chicago listed as a -124 favorite with an over/under of 8.5
- Wiseguys are also betting Cleveland Indians-Tampa Bay Rays (7:10 p.m. ET) and Pittsburgh Pirates-St. Louis Cardinals (8:15 p.m. ET)
Baseball bettors are entering the homestretch. With the MLB regular season ending on Sept. 30, wiseguys have a little fewer than three weeks left to pad their bankrolls before switching to football betting full-time.
After analyzing Tuesday’s 16-game 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., 8:05 p.m. and 8:15 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.
Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Rays
- Sharp angle: Under (moved from 8 to 8.5)
- First pitch: 7:10 p.m. ET
