  • Sharps are betting three MLB games on Wednesday, headlined by Toronto Blue Jays-Baltimore Orioles (7:05 p.m. ET), with Baltimore listed as a -110 favorite with an over/under of 9.
  • Wiseguys are also betting Pittsburgh Pirates-St. Louis Cardinals (8:15 p.m. ET) and Arizona Diamondbacks-San Francisco Giants (10:15 p.m. ET).

Wiseguys kept the good times rolling on Tuesday, cashing their Nationals-Phillies contrarian Over 7 (30% bets) and Padres moneyline (25% bets, +107) en route to a 2-1 night. With a stacked Wednesday board, sharps will stay selective and look to extend their winning streak to three consecutive days.

After analyzing Wednesday’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., 8:15 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. ET.

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