What is Sharp Consensus?
Once upon a time, the sport with the highest betting volume was horse racing. At the time, bookmakers would be found all throughout the race track. Bookmakers would get passed information from bettors, from the trainers, from the jockeys and even from the veterinarians. The bookmaker was the most informed person at the track and he would use this information to his advantage. Not much has changed, except today a bookmaker’s information is no longer limited to horse racing. Modern day bookmakers accept action from the sharpest bettors on the planet and across a myriad of sports, well known & obscure. Every sharp bettor needs to bet with a book somewhere to profit from their information. Therefore, the bookmaker becomes the most informed operator in the business of sports betting. By having a relationship with two large global books, one of the tools I can utilize is the ability to see what the sharpest bettors are playing.
Back during the football season in 2019 I thought…what if you tracked what the Top 10 sharp bettors, across two global books, were betting? Did these top bettors agree or disagree, and what were the outcomes of those events? I monitored this angle privately in September 2019. By mid-October 2019 there was no denying the Sharp Consensus clearly provided a large edge in select situations. It was then that I unveiled a new bit of content…the Sharp Consensus was born! Sharp Consensus records are on the right side of this page.
Sharp Consensus content is divided into three types of plays…
1) Premium Plays are the side/total getting bet most frequently and without contradiction among the Top 10 sharp bettors in action, across two global books. Premium Plays will have Sharp Consensus counts of 3-0, 4-0, 5-0, etc. What that means is, in the case of a 3-0 count, three of the Top 10 bettors in action are on the same side with nobody on the other side.
2) “Just Missed” Premium Plays are also derived from the Top 10 sharp bettors in action. However, while Premium Plays have no contradiction within the Top 10 sharp players in action, “Just Missed” Premium Plays allow one contradiction. “Just Missed” Premium Plays will have Sharp Consensus counts of 3-1, 4-1, 5-1, etc. What that means is, in the case of a 3-1 count, there are three bettors in the Top 10 on one side of a wager with one bettor in the Top 10 on the other side.
3) Other Sharp Consensus Plays are also derived from the Top 10 sharp bettors in action. While Premium Plays have no contradiction and while “Just Missed” Premium Plays allow one contradiction… Other Sharp Consensus Plays allow multiple contradictions. Other Sharp Consensus Plays could have counts of 3-2, 4-2, 4-3, etc. What that means is you could have three of the Top 10 on one side of a bet with two of the Top 10 on the other (a 3-2 count). Even though there is disagreement, the side getting the larger number of Top 10 backers (in this example, 3) has proven to be a good proposition.
How can you access the Sharp Consensus? Sharp Consensus content is available for the football and NCAAB seasons and can be accessed through TSP Live, when available. For more information visit the TSP Live link in the website menu or click here!
