In my Yankees vs. White Sox Field of Dreams Game PRO betting report, I wrote, “Terrible jokes aside, tonight’s Field of Dreams Game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox should draw plenty of eyeballs, and with extra eyeballs often comes recreational betting action.”

The Action Network’s MLB public betting data backs this up as Yankees vs. White Sox is already the most bet game of the day with plenty of time to pile on considering its 7:15 p.m. ET start.

But let’s not forget that Thursday’s MLB slate includes 14 games, each of which pays the same for the winning bets as the Field of Dreams Games will.

And while recreational bettors are keying in on Yankees vs. White Sox, sharps are quietly loading up on Thursday’s biggest betting edge of them all: Blue Jays vs. Angels.

Sharp Action

The Blue Jays vs. Angels over/under opened at 7.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook and now sits at 8.5 … and you can thank wiseguys for that movement.

Action Labs’ Bet Signals tracked a steam move on the over at around 8:23 a.m. ET, explaining why this number has pushed north of the opener.

Model Projection

So why are professionals so bullish on this over? Based on our MLB PRO Projections, the Blue Jays vs. Angels total was (and still is even after the movement) way too low.

Our model projects this number at 9.55, translating to a B-graded, 5.9% edge when compared to the current market consensus of 8.5 (click here for live MLB odds), which is the biggest of Thursday’s schedule.
