Welcome to the MLB Edition of Sports Marketwatch, where the Team at Sports Insights gives sports fans unprecedented insight into the sports betting marketplace. If you ever wanted to know what was really happening on the sportsbook side, you now have an all-access pass with Sports Marketwatch!
The staff at Sports Insights analyzes the MLB marketplace to identify which games the public is chasing and which ones the sharps are pounding. Let’s take a look at what game we are highlighting tonight.
Sports Marketplace – MLB Edition
Recapping Last Week
Melky Cabrera had 4 hits which helped the Royals take down the White Sox and earn Marketwatch a 7-2 victory.
2011 MLB Games to Watch: 11-13, 45.8%, -0.93 units
Minnesota Twins +110 over Kansas City Royals
After taking the Royals in the last edition of Marketwatch, this week we will go against them and take the Twins.
Wednesday’s matchup will feature Carl Pavano (8-13, 4.48 ERA) going against Bruce Chen (12-8, +3.98 ERA). At least we think it will be Bruce Chen. There are reports that the Red Sox are looking to trade for the veteran southpaw. For that reason, we recommend taking action rather than the listed pitchers if you have the option.
At the time of publication, only 25% of moneyline bets are taking the Twins. This is not surprising as the Twins will end up with the worst record in the American League and have only won 3 of their past 23 games. Meanwhile the Royals have been playing well and have won 11 of their past 15.
This public perception that the Royals are playing better than the Twins will likely keep the betting percentages lopsided.
Sports Insights has also tracked a Smart Money alert at Diamond (15-10, +8.27 units won) indicating some sharp money on the home dogs.
Thanks for following this season’s MLB Marketwatch. Let’s end the season on a positive note with a win by betting against the public and following the smart money.
