- Big bets are landing on Friday's MLB slate, including Rangers vs. Orioles (7:05 p.m. ET) and Angels vs. White Sox (8:10 p.m. ET).
- Find out how sharps are betting these two MLB matchups.
The MLB season chugs along tonight with a 15-game Friday slate, offering ample opportunities for bettors to find value.
While the Wake Forest-Rice and Marshall-Boise State college football matchups are the most popular games of the night, ticket counts are still solid for professional baseball.
Typically, it’s Sports Insights’ Bet Signals that lead the way for our daily sharp reports in terms of pinpointing professional betting action. However, it’s The Action Network’s money percentages that are setting the table for tonight’s MLB report.
Texas Rangers @ Baltimore Orioles
7:05 p.m. ET | Brock Burke (0-1, 1.50 ERA) vs. Dylan Bundy (6-13, 4.96 ERA)
Baltimore opened as a -110 favorite over Texas and is garnering just 28% of all moneyline wagers.
However, that small percentage of bets also represents 48% of the money that has landed on this line, revealing that the biggest wagers have come in on the Orioles.
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have also triggered a Steam Move on Baltimore, indicating that the big bets are coming from professionals and adding context as to why the O’s now sit at -131.

Los Angeles Angels @ Chicago White Sox
8:10 p.m. ET | Dillon Peters (3-2, 4.13 ERA) vs. Lucas Giolito (14-8, 3.30 ERA)
Similar to the game above, the favorites in this matchup — the Chicago White Sox — are attracting more money (84%) than bets (68%), suggesting that they’re the targets of the largest wagers.
And, once again, SI’s sharp money indicators confirm that the pros are also responsible for the heavy money, as wiseguys steamed Chicago at -140, explaining why this number has climbed from the opener of -135 to a consensus of -147.
