Wake and Rake: Heavy Sharp Betting Action on Monday’s Indians-Red Sox Game

Aug 20, 2018 9:00 AM EDT
  • Monday's Cleveland Indians-Boston Red Sox game (7:10 p.m. ET) features both teams listed with -105 moneylines and an over/under of 8.
  • Professional bettors didn't waste time jumping on the matchup.
  • Using the betting tools available at The Action Network, we've identified how early sharp action is affecting this game.

Bad bets win and good bets lose.

That’s simply the nature of sports betting.

But consistently beating the closing line is a sign of a winning bettor and should be the goal of everyone who hopes to achieve long-term profitability.

We can’t control what the players do on the field, but we can monitor the very efficient sports betting market.

For anyone interesting in learning more about closing line value (CLV), I highly recommend this article from The Action Network’s Danny Donahue, breaking down CLV in more detail and explaining why it’s so important.

To beat closing lines, wiseguys will often place their bets early.

The Action Network’s proprietary betting tools can help identify these opportunities so bettors understand which games are offering value.

Monday’s MLB slate may be a light one, but sharps have already unloaded on tonight’s marquee Cleveland Indians-Boston Red Sox (7:10 p.m. ET) matchup.
