Our MLB PRO Projections compare our model with lines posted at a variety of sportsbooks.

Sean Zerillo’s power ratings power our projections, which are graded on an A through F scale. We recommend at least a B+ before considering placing a bet based solely on these projections.

PRO Projection edges are based on market consensus lines, but there will often be better odds available, which make each game’s edge even bigger simply by locking in the best available line.

You can access our projection edges in three different places:

  1. Web Tool
  2. Action App -> Pro Tab -> MLB -> Projections
  3. Game pages in the Action App

Odds as of 7 a.m. ET on Thursday. Check the PRO Projections page to see how our edges change as odds move throughout the day.
