The New York Yankees are no strangers to disagreement between sharp and square bettors.
Because the Yanks are MLB’s most popular team with a nationwide fanbase, casual bettors often blindly back the Bronx Bombers while pros use this to their advantage and buy back which team New York is facing at a discount.
So you have to understand my surprise when I noticed that there were two key betting value indicators in our MLB PRO Report — Sharp Action and Big Money — aligned with the Yankees for tonight’s game against the Blue Jays.
Yankees vs. Blue Jays Odds, Sharp Betting Pick
Backed by two smart money indicators via Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, we know that two unique instances of action from respected bettors hit the Yankees and forced oddsmakers across the market to adjust their odds.
Additionally — and very related — sharps are also placing sizable wagers on the Yanks, which has the PRO Report’s Big Money column popping.
The Action Network’s MLB public betting data is reporting just 31% of all moneyline tickets backing New York, yet that significant minority of bets actually accounts for 55% of the money, confirming that the big wagers are taking the road underdog.
