Tuesday MLB Sharp Report


For an updated breakdown of Tuesday's betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted at 3 p.m. ET. I'll also be co-hosting Betting Across America with Mike Pritchard from 3 to 4 p.m. ET. In the meantime, let's discuss where respected money is leaning for a trio of MLB games tonight...

7:05 p.m. ET: Tampa Bay Rays (35-25) at New York Yankees (44-16)
This AL East showdown features a pair of teams riding hot streaks. The Rays are 7-4 over their last 11 games while the Yankees are 11-1 over their last 12 games. In tonight's series opener, Tampa Bay hands the ball to veteran righty Corey Kluber (3-2, 3.88 ERA) while New York counters with ace righty Gerrit Cole (5-1, 3.63 ERA). This line opened with the Yankees listed as a -200 home favorite and the Rays a +170 road dog. Pros aren't scared off by the big chalk price and have steamed the red-hot Yankees up from -200 to -210. Home favorites -200 or more are 94-36 (72%) this season. When both teams are coming off a day off, the favorite is 48-26 (65%). New York is 41-15 as a favorite, 26-7 at home and 31-11 against righties. The Yankees are hitting .250 this season. The Rays are hitting .233. 
8:40 p.m. ET: Cleveland Guardians (29-27) at Colorado Rockies (27-34)
This Interleague showdown features a pair of teams trending in opposite directions. The Guardians just took three of four from the Athletics and are now 10-3 over their last 13 games. On the flip side, the Rockies are just 4-7 over their last 11 games. In tonight's series opener, Cleveland turns to ace righty Shane Bieber (3-3, 2.91 ERA) and Colorado taps fellow righty Antonio Senzatela (2-3, 4.83 ERA). This line opened with the Guardians as a modest -140 road favorite and the Rockies a +125 home dog. Respected money has come down on the surging Guardians, pushing Cleveland up from -140 to -155. Non-division road favorites are 118-60 (66%) this season. Cleveland is 18-9 as a favorite. Colorado is 18-28 as a dog. The Guardians' biggest advantage is on the mound, with a team ERA of 3.66 compared to the Rockies' 5.02. Cleveland is +33 in run differential. Colorado is -64. 
10:10 p.m. ET: Los Angeles Angels (29-33) at Los Angeles Dodgers (37-23)
Both of these Freeway Series foes are looking to bounce back from tough stretches. The Angels just dropped two of three against the Mets to fall to 2-16 over their last 18 games. Meanwhile, the mighty Dodgers just got swept by the Giants on the road. In tonight's series opener, the Angels start righty Noah Syndegaard (4-4, 3.69 ERA) and the Dodgers rebuttal with fellow righty Tony Gonsolin (7-0, 1.58 ERA). This line opened with the Dodgers listed as a -190 home favorite and the Angels a +175 road dog. Sharps are betting on the Dodgers to break their three-game losing skid, steaming the home team up from -190 to -200. Favorites off a loss who made the playoffs last year are 121-64 (65%). The Dodgers are 36-23 as a favorite, 17-10 at home and 24-15 against righties. The Angels are just 4-15 as a dog, 12-15 on the road and 21-25 against righties.
