The Highlights

  • Due to increased attention from recreational bettors, Friday represents one of the best days for contrarian betting in Major League Baseball.
  • The combination of fading popular teams and tailing sharp action points to three teams offering value.

It’s Friday, which is arguably the best day of the week for sharp bettors. Public players are finishing their work weeks and more apt to get down on games (specifically favorites and home teams), which leads to increased ticket counts and more contrarian value. This doesn’t mean sharps double down and risk multiple units, it just means that they’re operating with an increased edge. As always, Goodfellas stay the course and stick to flat betting.


After analyzing Friday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed three MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, all starting at 7:10 p.m. ET.
