Happy Friday! Historically, today has been the best day of the week to fade the public. With recreational bettors wrapping up their work week (and getting their latest paychecks), Average Joes are more apt to get down on games, specifically targeting favorites, home teams and overs. This leads to increased ticket counts and elevated contrarian value.
After analyzing Friday’s 15-game slate using Sports Insights’ Sportsbook Insider Pro betting tools, I’ve pinpointed five MLB bets that professionals are focusing on, starting at 7:10 p.m., 9:40 p.m., and 10:10 p.m. ET.
Data as of 3:15 p.m. ET. All bets risking one unit, not to win one unit. All total plays Listed Pitcher, not Action.
