- Following last night's 12-run affair, Game 2 of the World Series opened with an over/under of 8.5 runs.
- Sports Insights' bet signals reveal that sharps have made a play on this total.
Two of the best pitchers in baseball took the mound in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night, but even Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw couldn’t shut down the bats in these two lineups.
The Dodgers and Red Sox combined for 12 runs in the opening game, hitting the over of 7.5 runs in the fifth inning.
Now with David Price and Hyun-Jin Ryu getting the ball in Game 2, it should come as no surprise to see bettors expecting another high-scoring game and flocking to the over.
At the time of writing, the over has attracted 76% of bets being made on the total.
But despite last night’s 12-run affair, sharp bettors are sticking to their guns on the over/under.
Listed at plus-money for most of the morning, the under (8.5) has drawn two Sports Insights bet signals — indications of sharp money causing market-wide line movement.
Surely enough, the line did start to level out following the moves, reaching around -110 at most books, but it has since made its way back to the plus-money payout where it was listed earlier today.
It’ll be interesting to track how the total continues to move and if sharps are waiting to pounce once again.
