*Odds via FanDuel as of Wednesday.
There is a historically profitable betting algorithm developed by the Action Network that has a substantial betting edge for the game between the Cardinals and Cubs.
The algorithm targets the moneyline and factors in injuries, matchups, conditions and more.
This edge provides about 5.5% in betting value, which indicates the pick has implied odds that are more than 5.5% higher than the odds available to you in the markets.
Essentially, the line is currently at an 5.5% discount across the market.
Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least an 5.5% betting edge, you’re almost assured to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.
This ML pick is the best MLB pick of the day, according to our models.
