The college basketball season has ended, but fear not faithful bettors, the first Saturday of MLB action is upon us with a 15-game, all-day slate.
While it’s easy to get excited about baseball, it may be difficult to handicap how good (or bad) each team will be following offseason player, manager and front office changes this early in the season.
This is precisely why the Action Network’s MLB PRO Projections, which are powered by MLB betting guru Sean Zerillo, are so valuable.
With just the scroll of the mouse bettors can quickly scan the day’s entire slate of MLB matchups for the biggest edges according to Zerillo’s model.
And after doing just that, three of Saturday’s games have to come to the forefront as today’s smartest MLB bets, including Pirates vs. Cardinals, Brewers vs. Cubs and Red Sox vs. Yankees.
