As you could probably have guessed, a Game 1 Dodgers blowout that went over the total was not the desired outcome for sharps — or sportsbooks — last night.

Both the Dodgers and the over were popular sides, and sharps had taken a clear liking to the under at the opening number, which was still three runs short of the final score.

So what’s in store for sharp bettors in Game 2? Well, they certainly didn’t wait around to let us know. And they’ve even piled onto their morning action with another move this evening.

Rays vs. Dodgers Game 2 PRO Report

Some clear morning sharp action, which has been brought to light in part by a bet-vs.-money discrepancy, has landed on the Rays. And this line is falling because of it.

Our baseball experts have been on that side as well …

Sharp Action

Opening Rays numbers were as high as the low +140s. Now, Tampa is being found at a consensus of +121.

Sharps have been the driving force in that significant shift, as confirmed by four Sports Insights Bet Signals in the form of steam moves. Steam refers to a heavy dose of money hitting the same side of a bet over a very short period of time causing a sudden, market-wide line adjustment and is a strong indication of sharp action.

In this case, the four such moves triggered on Tampa came at lines of +138, +133, +126 and +125 — most recently at 5:45 p.m. ET.

Sharp Action edge: Rays

Big Money

Further confirming the Rays to be the sharp side, while bettors are split, the Rays have generated 61% of the money thus far, meaning bigger bets are landing on the underdogs.

And while big bets can technically come from anyone, they’re far more likely to come from professional bettors over a large sample. So a discrepancy such as this one certainly serves as another hint toward the pros’ pick.

Big Money edge: Rays
