Wednesday’s Rockies vs. Athletics game is very interesting from a betting market perspective — especially the over/under. From the moment this game opened until about 9:30 a.m. ET, the total pinged back and forth between 8 and 8.5.
However, that’s exactly when an influx of professional action flooded the market to take a true position on the Rockies vs. A’s over/under.
Let’s look at how smart money is hitting this total.

The Rockies-A’s over/under initially posted at 9, but as I mentioned above, it spent the early morning hours bouncing between 8 and 8.5.
Fifty-nine percent of bets on the total have played the over, but a whopping 83% of real money wagered is actually on the under, providing a huge piece to the line movement puzzle.
In fact, it’s not just lopsided money hitting the under — the pros are aligned on that side as well.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report sharp betting action in real-time, have triggered two steam moves on the under, citing two specific examples in which heavy wiseguy money forced oddsmakers across the market to react by dropping this number.
With big bets coming from respected players, there’s no doubt that sharp action is the reason for the 1.5-run move.
