  • The MLB odds board for Thursday, May 4 includes nine afternoon matchups.
  • When it comes to Thursday's smartest MLB predictions, Mets vs. Tigers and Twins vs. White Sox are offering value.
  • With the help of the latest MLB odds movement and the Action Network's PRO tools, here are the top betting predictions Mets vs. Tigers and Twins vs. White Sox.

When writing PRO Report articles for Action Network, I often employ two different strategies when writing introductions.

The first is to include specific nuggets about the game or games at hand to set up the rest of the article.

But other times I pull directly from my personal life to show exactly how (and why) I’m using a given slate’s PRO Report to examine MLB odds and identify my favorite predictions, and today is one of those days.

Our son was up all night with a stomach bug and will be home from school today. And, as every other parent knows, the phrase “stomach bug” is also another phrase for “ticking time bomb” for the rest of the household.

As a result, I’m very much going to be burying what remaining energy I have into today’s sports schedule, starting with MLB afternoon action.

So, after breaking down Thursday’s MLB odds board, here are two PRO predictions I’m betting to help get through the day.
