There are sharp and big money bettors all over the moneyline and spread for one team in this ALDS Game 1 matchup.

The Action Network's proprietary tracking data indicates as much.

Justin Verlander — the expected AL Cy Young winner — will toe the rubber on six days rest. Meanwhile, the Mariners will have to send out their No. 3 starter, Logan Gilbert, after two intense games in Toronto ended with a Wild Card Round victory.

Seattle Mariners vs. Houston Astros Sharp Picks

The sharps are riding with the Astros heavy tonight.

The big moneyed bettors have driven this moneyline from a market consensus at open of about -200 to its current mark of around -225.

The best price on the market is with Betway at -215. If you're in a state that doesn't have that sportsbook, roll with WynnBet's number at -220.

The spread's best price, meanwhile, is with DraftKings at -1.5 (+105).

Make sure to price shop for this contest. While, for instance, -215  is a great price on the Astros, the market-worst price at -240 with Tipico is horrible in comparison.

Betting with Tipico tonight would cut down on the value by about 2.4%, a substantial degree over the long run.

Tailing the wise guys and fading retail bettors is how you develop a profit in the long run.

In the short term, of course, variance is a massive constraint. You'll lose a few bets along the way.

The best method to ensure a positive ROI is to bet — with the same unit sizing — each time there's sharp action on a particular pick.

PRO Picks: Astros -215 or better | Astros -1.5 (+105) or better
