While it continues to be a difficult year for sharp bettors, it certainly isn’t a difficult day to locate sharp action on the MLB board.
While plenty of games have seen some interesting line movement as a result of sharp betting, five plays in particular have gotten some serious wiseguy love today.
All data as of 11:15 a.m. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.
Baltimore Orioles (+135) at Minnesota Twins
2:10 p.m. ET
Yes, sharpies are betting on the Orioles… what else is new. The O’s have attracted only 28% of bettors, but behind 48% of dollars they’ve moved from +145 to +135.
They’ve also triggered two Sports Insights Bet Signals, including a steam move at CRIS this morning, to further push this line down.
St. Louis Cardinals (+113) at San Francisco Giants, Over 7.5 Runs
4:05 p.m. ET
Different bird here, but a very similar story. The Cardinals have received 31% of bets that account for 50% of dollars; they’ve moved from +125 to +113 as a result.
Along with the percentage splits, sharps at BetOnline and Pinnacle are behind the Cards, which has contributed to this line move.
The over has also attracted some sharp action, and as a result the juice has risen to -120.
Arizona Diamondbacks vs. San Diego Padres, Under 7.5 Runs
4:10 p.m. ET
This matchup saw a measly 25 runs last night, so it’s no surprise to see sharps all over the under.
In all seriousness, wiseguys rarely concern themselves with previous game results. If anything, the 20-run outburst from Arizona might provide sharps with a slight edge today simply based on contrarian value.
While only 35% of bettors have taken this under, they account for 75% of dollars bet, and the under juice has gone from -110 to -116 as a result.
Los Angeles Angels (-101) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
8:05 p.m. ET
This play didn’t pan out for sharps last night, as the Angels were able to muster only a single run, but, again, wiseguys have little concern with previous results.
The Halos have gone from +110 to -101 thanks to some sharp plays at Pinnacle and YouWager. They’ve also landed 57% of dollars despite only 39% of bets.
