A Matthew Boyd vs. Chad Kuhl matchup doesn’t exactly scream “pitcher’s duel,” but the Tigers’ and Pirates’ respective lineups don’t necessarily inspire confidence in a heavy output of runs, either.

Perhaps that’s why this total — which opened at 8.5 with -120 juice on the over — has bettors split down the middle. A slight 51% majority has taken the over as of the early afternoon Friday.

But while the general population of bettors is having trouble coming to a consensus on this total, the sharp faction seems to be aligned, and oddsmakers are starting to take notice.

Tigers vs. Pirates Sharp Betting Pick

As mentioned, betting tickets are essentially coming in at a 50-50 split between the over and under. The money associated with those tickets, however, has not been so balanced.

Two-thirds (66%) of dollars, in fact, have hit the under, meaning the under is taking on the bigger bets — the ones more likely to be made by sharp bettors.

Confirming that to be the case, four Sports Insights Bet Signals — which track and record instances of market activity that comes as a result of sharp action — have been triggered on the under. As a result, it’s now the under being juiced up to -115 at Parx.

We’ve yet to see the actual total drop to a flat 8, but if more smart money continues to hit the same side, it certainly wouldn’t come as a big surprise.
