Thanks to our BangTheBook.com Betting Center, readers have access to a tremendous database of stats, trends, and wagering angles to make money. Our goal has always been to educate and inform so that our readers can reap the benefits of the content at our site. Every day, our database puts together a list of the top betting trends for the games on the schedule. In a new daily feature, the top sports betting trends will be presented to our readers with some insight on the game.
There's not a whole lot of value in a money line trend on a -800 favorite, so cutting it down to ATS trends or small money line favorites made sense. Totals bettors can always find the top totals trends of the day and use the drop-down menu on the left for money line trends. For MLB, totals will be included, but they will rarely be included for the other sports.

Not a single ATS trend from our Betting Center for Tuesday night with a lot of Major League Baseball and only three NBA games as the league prepares for tomorrow’s season finale. There’s still money to be made, so let’s do it on the money line.
Here are the top sports betting trends for April 14:
MLB: Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians (7:10 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play on Chicago using the money line in road games on Tuesday. The White Sox were 10-3 (+11.15 units) last season.
There are a couple possible reasons for this trend. The White Sox may fare well after a day off for travel or it may be nothing more than a coincidence, but those looking for a money line underdog in baseball on Tuesday night could do a lot worse than Jose Quintana and the White Sox. Carlos Carrasco takes the ball for the Indians, who have struggled against left-handed pitching for as long as anyone can remember. There has been a 20-cent line move on this number and the White Sox are +110.
MLB: Washington Nationals at Boston Red Sox (6:10 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play against Boston using the money line in all home games with a money line between +100 and -125. The Red Sox are 5-17 (-14.7 units) over the last two seasons.
The Red Sox defied this trend in their Home Opener on Monday with a win over the Nationals, so it is 0-1 on the season, but it was 17-4 for bettors last year. The Red Sox are a much different team, however, so it’s hard to put a lot of faith into this trend for Tuesday night. The Nationals send Stephen Strasburg to the hill against Justin Masterson.
NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Phoenix Suns (10:30 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play against Phoenix using the money line in home games after allowing 105 or more points. The Suns are 5-10 (-14.45 units) this season.
No line is available for this game yet, but it’s hard to see the Clippers resting players with the importance of seeding in the Western Conference playoffs. The Suns have been terrible over the last several games, falling apart after they were eliminated from the postseason hunt. The Suns may be at home here, but the Clippers should be a good look on the money line and they can name their score if they care.
NBA: Washington Wizards at Indiana Pacers (8:00 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play on Washington using the money line in all April games. The Wizards are 14-4 (+12.05 units) over the last two seasons.
The Wizards are in a tough spot on Tuesday night against an Indiana Pacers team that can win out and claim the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. This is the first of two must-win games for the Pacers and their overnight line jumped from -4.5 to -7 once the Brooklyn Nets got blown out by the Chicago Bulls. The Wizards are basically locked into the #5 seed, so there’s not much left to play for.
MLB: New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles (7:05 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play against New York using the money line in all Tuesday games. The Yankees are 6-17 (-15.3 units) over the last two seasons.
The Orioles will send Miguel Gonzalez to the mound against CC Sabathia for Tuesday night’s affair at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The Birds dropped the first game 6-5 thanks to a Stephen Drew pinch-hit grand slam, so they’re looking for quick revenge in this one. For whatever reason, the Yankees were a bad team on Tuesdays last season. There has been a big line move on CC Sabathia in this one, so bettors don’t seem concerned with this trend.
MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers (8:05 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play against Texas using the money line in home games with a total of 9 or 9.5. The Rangers are 14-35 (-23.2 units) over the last two seasons.
This money line trend makes a lot of sense. Injuries ravaged the Rangers last season and they had a subpar lineup with a bad pitching staff in a good hitter’s park. As a result, the Rangers were a bad team in games that had relatively high scores. The Angels are a slight favorite at most books in this matchup of Drew Rucinski and Nick Martinez, but initial money has been on the home team.
MLB: Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants (10:15 p.m. ET)
Trend: Play against Colorado using the money line in road night games. The Rockies are 15-45 (-27.73 units) over the last two seasons.
Every road money line trend for Colorado will be a negative after last season’s 21-60 performance away from Coors Field. The Rockies are actually 3-1 on the road this season, but only one of those wins has come in a night game. The Giants will send Tim Hudson to the hill against Christian Bergman and the Giants are one of the biggest favorites on the board for Tuesday night’s action.
