The betting card is locked and loaded Friday, ranging from postseason MLB, to college football to regular-season NHL action.

It isn't quite a sports equinox, but if you can't find something good to bet tonight, it won't be for lack of volume; there are games everywhere.

Padres vs. Dodgers on the diamond, Navy vs. SMU on the gridiron and Lightning vs. Blue Jackets on ice are three of Friday's top bets from the public.

Utilizing Action Network's betting ticket data, we'll sort Friday's top bets by most popular pick.

These five contests in particular are getting slammed.

Friday's Top Bets

1. Padres vs. Dodgers (-120)

8:37 p.m. ET 

The hot commodity in our trackers Friday is the NLDS clash in San Diego for Padres vs. Dodgers.

2. Navy vs. SMU (-12.5)

7:30 p.m. ET

The first of two college football games Friday just crossed the 17,000 wager mark as of around 2 p.m. ET.

The bulk of the spread tickets for Navy vs. SMU is actually skewed to the underdog.

About two of every three bets (65%) are banking on the Midshipmen to cover the 12.5 points.

3. UTSA vs. FIU (+33.5)

5:00 p.m. ET

The UTSA vs. FIU ticket count (9,400) doesn't hold a candle to the Navy vs. SMU showdown at the time of writing.

Bettors are a bit torn with the Roadrunners laying five touchdowns. There's a slight lean to the Golden Panthers, who are generating 54% of the spread bets.

4. Lightning vs. Blue Jackets (+165)

7 p.m. ET

Friday's Lightning vs. Blue Jackets NHL tilt leads all games on the hockey slate, with 8,000-plus bets on the moneyline.

It's no surprise to see the public latch onto Tampa Bay at around -200, as the Bolts are attracting 92% of tickets to win outright.

5. Hurricanes vs. Sharks (+170)

Hurricanes vs. Sharks in the NHL rounds out Friday's top bets, with the public submitting roughly 7,500 tickets on the game's moneyline market.

And if you thought the Lightning were a popular bet, the Hurricanes one-upped them.

We've registered 93% of bets on Carolina, the most lopsided pick on Friday's NHL card.
