What is KB Consensus?

Return to KB Consensus analytic

The purpose of the KB (Known Bettor) Consensus table is to highlight wagers where a large portion of sharp bettors are on one side of a wager versus the other side. The cutoff for something to qualify as “KB Consensus” is a reading of 80% or more.

How does the analytic work? It scans every active sports market for the day. The analytic then looks for markets meeting key volume levels (based on sport). The analytic then looks at all the sharp bettors involved in that market and reports the percentage of sharp bettors on each side of the market. When there is a disparity where 60%+ of the sharp bettors in the market are on one side of a wager, the wager will appear in the table below.

As an example, let’s say the analytic is now scanning the moneyline market for Toronto versus the NY Yankees. The analytic will filter down to all the sharp bettors who currently have wagers within the moneyline market for Toronto versus the NY Yankees. Now let’s say that Toronto appears on the table with a KB Consensus reading of 72%. What that means is, of the sharp bettors who are actually betting the moneyline side in the NYY/TOR game, 72% of them are betting the Blue Jays, 28% are thereby betting the Yankees.

For a play to be considered KB Consensus, it needs to have 80% or more of the sharp bettors on the same side of the wager. You will see KB Consensus angles hit this table as soon as they get to 60% of known bettors on one side of a wager. When one side of a wager hits 80%, it qualifies as a KB Consensus angle and a TSP Live alert would be issued. KB Consensus covers sides and totals.
