‘Twas quite the Friday night for sharpies, as they put together a 4-0 sweep for +4.23 units. They still haven’t fully overcome the first half struggles of this MLB season, as Sharp Report plays are now sitting at seven units under on the year.
Four more games have caught sharp attention on Saturday, however, with start times ranging from 4:05 to 10:10 p.m. ET.
All data as of 11 am. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.
Baltimore Orioles (+137) vs. Los Angeles Angels
4:05 p.m. ET
The Orioles have become a frequent guest on the Sharp Report, and wiseguys have found value in them once again this afternoon.
Behind three sharp moves from three separate books, Baltimore has fallen from +140 to +137 despite attracting only 23% of bettors. Also helping move the the line is a notable bet vs. money percentage discrepancy.
Washington Nationals-Philadelphia Phillies Over 9
6:05 p.m. ET
This total has received an onslaught of bet signals since opening, all of which have a positive unit total on the season.
As for the percentages, bettors are relatively split, but based on the money column sharps clearly are not. Their heavy backing has moved the over juice up to -125.
Chicago White Sox (+105) at Texas Rangers
9:05 p.m. ET
The White Sox are receiving only 29% of bets to this point but have seen their line fall from +117 to +105 thanks to some sharp action.
They’ve also generated a higher money than bet percentage (39% to 29%), making for another sharp indication.
San Francisco Giants (+108) at Arizona Diamondbacks
10:10 p.m. ET
The Giants’ line has dropped a couple cents from its opening number, but like the other dogs on today’s report they’ve attracted only a 27% backing.
Clearly, wiseguys are among that minority . . .
