Those wagering on sports were 2-3 on major moves yesterday and see mostly balanced action today with a few exceptions. Because of early start did not get to Cincinnati Reds falling from -180 to -160 or less. Make certain to check out our Money Line trends since they are 7-2 of late. Back on Monday.
NBA- Portland at Dallas 9:30 EDT ESPN
Oddsmakers started Game 1 with total of 187 and NBA bettors think this will be slower paced affair and moved the total to 185. Because both teams don’t make many mistakes on offense, the outcome of this total will be about shots made. I know this is Tim McCarver obvious in terms of what is said, but it’s about offensive execution. If you think Portland can make a fair amount of 3’s, they are 18-8 OVER in road games when they make 32% to 38% of their three-point attempts. 3DW Position – Lean against bettors
MLB – N.Y. Mets at Atlanta 4:10 EDT FOX
This is difficult situation for the Mets having to play two unscheduled doubleheaders in three days because of weather. Baseball bettors don’t like their chances in the opener, as they shifted them from +160 money line underdogs to +180 or more. Both teams have been playing lousy, but Atlanta is 14-2 against the ML after five straight games stranding seven or less runners on base. 3DW Position – Agree with bettors
MLB- Florida at Philadelphia 7:05 EDT FSFL, CSN
Florida has won three in a row and five of seven on their road trip and can guarantee a series triumph with another victory. The betting action has been on the total, with the number headed to 8 after beginning at 8.5. There are numbers to support this as the Phillies are 14-4 UNDER after a one run loss and 16-4 UNDER after scoring four runs or less in five consecutive contests. 3DW Position – Agree with bettors
