  • The over/under for tonight's World Series Game 3 (8:09 p.m. ET on FOX) between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers is attracting attention from sharp bettors.
  • Professionals bet the over/under in the first two games of the 2018 World Series, and using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how they're betting Game 3.

For the third straight game, professionals are betting the over/under in the World Series. Sharps played the under in Games 1 and 2, losing the World Series opener but bouncing back in Wednesday’s matchup.

The over/under for Game 3 opened at 7.5, and 82% of early bettors are currently playing the over. Recreational bettors prefer taking overs because action-packed, high-scoring games are more fun to watch.

But how are sharps betting the over/under for World Series Game 3? Are they joining the public on the over or leveraging that action to instead bet the under?

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, we break down just how the wiseguys are betting Game 3 (8:09 p.m. ET on FOX).

While recreational bettors are pounding the over, sharps are pivoting and grabbing the under yet again.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track professional betting action in real time — have triggered two Reverse Line Moves on under 7.5.

Reverse Line Movement refers to situations in which the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages and is a clear indicator that professional money is moving a line.

With wiseguys pounding the under, oddsmakers have adjusted the vig from -110 to -122 in order to entice more action on the over.

Be sure to download The Action Network’s mobile app to track whether that over money eventually comes from now through first pitch.
