A quick, two game Subway Series commences on Monday night and the Action Network’s betting algorithms indicate good value on one side of the moneyline.
Sharp bettors are all over this pick — and so is one of our premier MLB handicappers.
The Yankees are still -5000 to win the AL East but have given up a substantial lead in the division over a hapless, historically awful few weeks.
The Bronx Bombers are 10-20 since the All-Star break — no other team with at least a 66% win percentage at the break has performed so poorly in their following 30 games.
Meanwhile, the Mets have maintained their lead over the NL East, with a four-game lead as of Monday afternoon. The boys from Flushing capped off a series win on Sunday over the playoff-contending Phillies with a 10-9, come-from-behind victory in the ninth inning.
This pick on the moneyline fades the public — and heavily.
Going against retail bettors and their prevailing notions is one of the main ways you can glean value in the markets.
