The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers begin a highly-anticipated three-game set tonight at Dodger Stadium. Not only are these arguably the top two brands in all of baseball, but these teams currently own the best two records in the majors.
Unsurprisingly, Friday’s Yankees-Dodgers matchup is on pace to be the most heavily-bet baseball game of the day, and that action is coming from both recreational and sharp players.

The Dodgers opened as -180 favorites against the Yankees, but it didn’t take long for professionals to pound the Bronx Bombers at such an enticing underdog price.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals — which track and report sharp betting action — triggered a Steam Move on the Yankees, forcing oddsmakers to quickly shorten New York’s price.
Steam is defined as sudden, uniform line movement across the betting market that is usually the result of professionals playing the same side of one game at multiple sportsbooks, all at once.
Even with 63% of moneyline bets piling on Los Angeles, the money from respected bettors flowing on the Yankees has driven their line from +155 to +129.
