The Orioles’ walk-off win over the Yankees last night gave the public a tough loss on a -236 favorite, but public bettors still cashed on two of their top three plays.
Despite the Yankees’ loss, they’re a public play again on Wednesday, along with two other favorites.
All data as of 12 p.m. ET. For live info, check out our MLB live odds page.
New York Yankees (-147) at Baltimore Orioles
7:05 p.m. ET
The Yankees are listed at a much cheaper price this evening, and bettors have pounced on it. Eighty percent of bets accounting for 88% of dollars are behind New York, but the Yanks have fallen from -156 to -147 with struggling Sonny Gray on the mound.
Why the public loves the Yankees: Despite outscoring the Orioles 19-13 in the series, the Yankees have dropped two of the first three games. The public can’t fathom this O’s team taking three of four, so the support behind New York isn’t a surprise.
Milwaukee Brewers (-172) at Miami Marlins
7:10 p.m. ET
Behind 85% of bets, the Brewers are tonight’s most popular team. They’ve also landed 86% of dollars, and have moved from -166 to -172 as a result.
Why the public loves Milwaukee: In a matchup between teams with the National League’s best and worst records, it’s a pretty safe guess where the public will land. But beyond the records, Freddy Peralta is on the mound for the Brew Crew tonight. He’s gone 4-1 with a 2.14 ERA in his six starts this season.
Atlanta Braves (-166) vs. Toronto Blue Jays
7:35 p.m. ET
The Braves have attracted 78% of bets accounting for 83% of dollars, and have moved from -158 to -166.
Why the public loves Atlanta: The Braves dropped the first game of this series on Tuesday to a Blue Jays team with a record that’s eight games worse, and the public always expects the better team to bounce back after a loss. With an All-Star arm in Mike Foltynewicz on the hill, this is an easy play for the public.
