Sharps Betting Cubs-Padres, 3 Other Sunday MLB Games

Jul 15, 2018 10:59 AM EDT
  • The Toronto Blue Jays have dipped from +140 to +131 vs. the Red Sox, despite the overwhelming majority of bets being on Boston.
  • Sharp bettors have been all over the Pirates-Brewers series, which is continuing on Sunday.

Sharp bettors went 2-1 Saturday, winning a bit over a unit thanks to the plus money they took with Pittsburgh.

Today they’re hammering four spots — including the Pittsburgh matchup again — as they look to build off yesterday’s wins.

Before that, though, here are some 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.

They’ve also triggered two Sports Insights Bet Signals to fall from +140 to +131.
