The third game of the MLB season will commence this afternoon between the Pirates and Cardinals.

For this contest, smart money bettors are targeting one side of the moneyline — heavily.

The Action Network’s proprietary tracking data has detected droves of sharp and big money bettors on one team this afternoon.

In addition, that same side is getting hammered by four of our foremost MLB handicappers. None of our experts are rolling with the other side of the moneyline.

And while it’s Opening Day, this game won’t get a ton of eyeballs outside of a specific demographic. That’s great news for you, the reader.

Large amounts of sharp, big money and expert money on games of low magnitude allows you to extract an advantage over average bettors.

Games with fewer eyeballs gives sportsbooks less of an opportunity to fix mis-priced lines — and it also means less of the public is hunting for them. Also, there are generally fewer sharp bettors targeting contests with low magnitude.

Read further to see where the wise guys are slapping their money down for this Thursday matinee.
