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.
