  • Friday's sharpest indicators didn't lead to profits, going 1-2 and continuing a frustrating 2018 MLB season.
  • Today, sharps are looking for some wins in three matchups: Pirates-Brewers, Tigers-Astros, and A's-Giants.

The 2018 MLB season just does not want to turn around for sharp bettors. Unlike years past, sharp action indicators have not yet led to profits this season. And last night’s sharpest angles were no different, going 1-2 for a small loss.

Still, wiseguys will stick with their process and they’ve picked out three more spots on Saturday’s board. Before we get into that trio, though, here are a few betting terms you should know:

Steam Move: Sudden, drastic and uniform line movement across the market caused by an overload of sharp action from respected players.

Reverse Line Movement: When the betting line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. It’s a top smart money indicator.

Juice: The tax or commission that bettors must pay the sportsbook in order for them to accept your wager.
