With our first cup of coffee, a scan of the overnight moves reveals some Sharp MLB Line Action for 8/16. Good morning and it is great to see everyone here again at HRWager. Today there have already been some big shifts. Not from pitching changes but in perception of the product to be put on the field. Instances where our oddsmaker might have under or over estimated the chances of one side. SO without any further ado, let us look to where the sharp money has gone this morning here at HRW.
Sharp MLB Line Action : The Tribe
One of the more interesting combined market moves is seen in Cleveland this morning. With Kluber on the mound, the Indians have gone from the low -170’s to be flirting with the -190 ML level right now. Combo move has seen the total stay at 7 1/2 but it become a little more pricey to wager on the under. Both starters have excelled in their last three starts. Consensus is that the White Sox have called it quits in the season when it comes to tough situations like these. Combined with how well the Indians play at home (35-21) makes the ML an easy leg for your parlays today.
Foreign Fade in Texas
Our other big line move that we witnessed goes on in Texas with Oakland visiting this evening at 8PM. Here the ML has dipped twenty points from the low -170s to the -150’s for the Rangers. Total is sky high at 10 1/2 with the under getting more costly as the market progressed. Here we have the inexperience of the starter of Oakland in Triggs. Another new arm for the A’s to try in this wasted season. However, it is the control problems of the Rangers import pitcher from Korea that causes concern. 9 walks in last three games has ballooned his ERA near six in that stint. While not proclaiming that Oakland will win, the large +160 point that an A’s win could get at one time had the sharps snap it up in a more even game because of the uncertain nature of the Rangers starter here.
Indians at home against a team that is dead in the water has people pegging Cleveland for a win. Texas has arm worries in this game with a starter who is having problems keeping the ball over the plate. Follow the thinking of the sharps, try their plays, and use the logic from this point forward. Good fortune in your wagering and we will see you later on here at HRW.
