  • Sharps are betting five of Monday's MLB games, headlined by Cleveland Indians-Boston Red Sox (7:10 p.m. ET) with Boston listed as a -151 favorite and an over/under of 9.
  • Wiseguys have also taken sides in Astros-Mariners and Twins-White Sox while playing over/unders in Yankees-Marlins and Braves-Pirates.

Wiseguys kept their winning streak alive last night, losing with the Pirates (-125) but cashing with the Giants (+109) and White Sox (+146), earning +1.55 units overall.

Remember: flat betting, always bet to risk, not bet to win! With a loaded Tuesday board, pro players will look to pick their spots and keep the good vibes going.

After analyzing Tuesday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed five MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:05 p.m., 7:10 p.m., 8:10 p.m. and 10:10 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 the sportsbook in order for them to accept your wager. A -115 juice means a bettor would have to wager $115 to win $100.
