Today is Final Four Saturday, with Houston taking on Baylor and UCLA facing Gonzaga with trips to Monday night’s national title game on the line.

It’s no secret that these are two of the biggest games of the year, and will therefore attract the lion’s share of action from recreational bettors.

But just because a game is “big” or is “important” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a smart one to bet. In fact, The Action Network’s PRO betting tools don’t see much, in terms of value, in either of tonight’s Final Four matchups.

So what is offering Saturday’s biggest edge for value-minded bettors?

How about the Tampa Bay Rays vs. Miami Marlins MLB matchup that will be largely ignored by casual bettors since first pitch will be smack dab in the middle of tonight’s first Final Four game.

Rays vs. Marlins Pick

The Tampa Bay Rays are -125 favorites (click here for live MLB odds) against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

However, our MLB PRO Projections, powered by the great Sean Zerillo, suggest that Miami should actually be favored in this game, and that, my friends, spells value.

Zerillo’s model projects the Marlins at -129, resulting in an A-minus graded, 7.5% edge when compared to the current consensus moneyline.

And savvy bettors can eke out even more value by shopping for the best line and locking in Miami at +106, which is currently available at DraftKings Sportsbook.
