*Odds as of Friday morning

The sports world now belongs to football.

As fans and bettors wake up this morning, the hot topic of conversation will be last night's exciting Chargers vs. Chiefs Thursday Night Football matchup, including the epic backdoor cover for Los Angeles backers.

Looking forward, we have two primetime college football games tonight, followed by a full weekend of regular season college and NFL slates.

But baseball is still chugging along, including Friday's lone afternoon matchup: Rockies vs. Cubs.

Again, at this point of the sports calendar, Friday afternoon MLB games aren't top of mind for recreational bettors.

However, that doesn't mean that Rockies vs. Cubs shouldn't be, because according to the Action Network's MLB betting model picks, there is value to be had for Friday's matinee.
