The first question tends to be…isn’t this the same as the KB Consensus? The answer is no. The KB Consensus goes market by market and looks at the sharp breakdown in each wagering market. The “Top Sharp Consensus” looks at the top 10 bettors, active in each sport for the current day, and tracks what they are wagering on. When multiple bettors in the top 10 agree on specific wagers, a Sharp Consensus alert is triggered. The table below will track those situations for the purposes of monitoring Premium Play and Just Missed Premium Play angles.

For something to qualify as a Premium Play, it must have a Top Sharp Consensus count of 3-0 or better (i.e. 3-0, 4-0, 5-0, 6-0, 7-0, 8-0, 9-0, 10-0). A 3-0 Top Sharp Consensus count means that three of the top 10 sharp bettors in action for a specific day are placing the same wager…with nobody in the top 10 wagering on the other side.
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.
