- Their top three plays tonight look similar, however, with the Mariners and Diamondbacks back on the card.
Public bettors are in somewhat of a funk right now. Monday marked the public’s fourth straight losing night after it went 1-2 on three favorites.
Their Tuesday plays look awfully similar to last night’s, however, with two of three teams making another appearance.

Seattle Mariners (-147) at Baltimore Orioles
7:05 p.m. ET
Seattle is getting 80% of bets in tonight’s meeting with Baltimore, but has attracted only 59% of dollars. That discrepancy has brought Seattle from -165 to -147.
Why the public loves Seattle: James Paxton has been tough for any team to beat this season, let alone the team with the worst record in the majors. His only two losses on the year have come to the Indians and Yankees, so the public is unsurprisingly expecting him to have his way with Baltimore.
Arizona Diamondbacks (-167) at Miami Marlins
7:10 p.m. ET
Getting 79% of bets, Arizona is the third-most popular team on tonight’s baseball slate. The Diamondbacks have also landed 76% of dollars to move from -160 to -167.
Why the public loves Arizona: The D-Backs were among last night’s most heavily bet teams, but failed to cash for public bettors in a 9-5 loss. With the Marlins now winners of three straight, the public is now all the more confident that the worst team in the NL is due for a loss tonight.
Houston Astros (-271) vs. Toronto Blue Jays
8:10 p.m. ET
Behind 80% of bets and 88% of dollars, the Astros have gone from -260 to -271, making them tonight’s biggest favorite.
Why the public loves Houston: Charlie Morton is another pitcher who has been very tough for opponents, with his only loss on the season coming to the Red Sox. Considering the Blue Jays’ 24th-best batting average in the majors this year, the public is feeling pretty good about Morton tonight.
