Public Bettors Look to Stay Hot with 3 MLB Plays Wednesday


Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports. Pictured: Mariners fans cheer for a James Paxton strikeout.

The Highlights:

  • Public bettors continued their win streak with three more wins last night.
  • Today they’ve hammered three more MLB matchups: Diamondbacks-Reds, Nats-O’s (again) and Mariners-Rangers.

What a run it’s been for the public. Last night they swept the board again, going 3-0 on their three favorite plays.

Today’s public bets all come from the diamond once again, and start times range from 3:40 to 10:10 p.m. ET.

All data as of 1:45 p.m. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.


Arizona Diamondbacks (-201) vs. Cincinnati Reds

3:40 p.m. ET

Eighty percent of bettors have taken the D’backs this afternoon, but with 57% of dollars landing on Arizona, they’ve barely moved from -200 to -201.

Why the public loves Arizona: The Reds have been the worst team in the NL all year, and are currently riding another three-game skid. With Patrick Corbin and his 2.47 ERA on the bump for the D’backs, it makes sense that the public is pretty confident in this play.

Washington Nationals (-210) at Baltimore Orioles

7:05 p.m. ET

The public has been right to take the Nats in the first two games of this series, and 84% are taking them again tonight. Ninety-one percent of money wagered so far has also come in on Washington, but the line has moved from -230 to -210.

Why the public loves the Nats: On top of the fact that they’ve won five straight, the Nationals are sending Max Scherzer to the mound tonight. Against the worst team in baseball, how could the public not be behind them?

Seattle Mariners (-285) vs. Texas Rangers

10:10 p.m. ET

Seventy-seven percent of betters are backing James “Big Maple” Paxton and the Mariners in one of tonight’s late matchups. With 79% of dollars also on Seattle, the M’s have moved from -235 to -285.

Why the public loves Seattle: Entering last night’s loss, the Mariners had won nine of 10. The public isn’t going to be expecting a team that hot to lose two in a row.
