  • Sharp Report plays went 4-1 over the weekend.
  • Wiseguys are getting down on a pair of short home dogs tonight.

Wiseguys had a great weekend, going a combined 4-1 with their Saturday and Sunday plays. Sunday’s play on the Dodgers (39% bets, -107 to -122) was a perfect example of sharps buying low on an undervalued home favorite. Since 2005, home favorites getting 40% or less bets with at least 10-cents of reverse line movement have gone 530-392 (57.5%) for a profit of +37.13 units. If the total is 8 or lower, the record is to 232-153 (60.3%) and +32.21 units.

After analyzing Monday’s 10-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed two MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 8:05 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. ET.
