Atlanta Braves @ Miami Marlins
1:05 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Marlins (moved from +131 to +104)
The Marlins might just be the sharpest play on the board today. Getting only 22% of the bets against the reigning division champs, Miami is tied for the least popular bet but has still found a way to fall from a +131 underdog to +104.
The 22% of bettors behind the Fish have generated an impressive 40% of actual money being wagered, meaning that bigger bettors — the ones more likely to be sharps — are among them.
Two SI Bet Signals have also been triggered on Miami, indicating instances of sudden, market-wide line movement, which is generally a sign of wiseguy action.
Seattle Mariners @ Cleveland Indians
1:10 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Under (moved from 9.5 to 9)
Wiseguys might be looking at the Cleveland weather for this bet. Progressive Field has the lowest FantasyLabs Weather Rating on today’s slate and should see winds blowing straight in from center field at 7 to 9 mph throughout the game.
But regardless of reason, there’s no doubting that the under has been a target of sharp bettors throughout the morning. Per Sports Insights Bet Signals, pros have come down hard on the under on four occasions (three times at 9.5, and once at an even-money 9).
That’s given oddsmakers no choice but to lower this total. Despite attracting only 42% of bets, under 9 is now -110 around much of the market and has even been juiced to -120 at some shops.
Minnesota Twins @ New York Yankees
4:05 p.m. ET
Sharp angle: Twins (moved from +130 to +121)
In keeping with today’s reverse line movement theme, the Twins have seen a notable line move toward them even though they are one of Sunday’s least popular teams. The Yankees have drawn 71% of bets in this matchup but have fallen from -140 to -131 on the moneyline.
Once again, SI Bet Signals indicate that the line move is a result of sharp money, as they’ve been triggered twice on Minnesota thanks to two market-wide line adjustments.
