- Hot temperatures can be found across most of the country on Friday, which is leading to some lofty totals on the baseball slate.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified how over/unders are being impacted for Padres-Cubs (2:20 p.m. ET), Rockies-Yankees (7:05), Royals-Indians (7:10) and more.
I don’t care where you live — your better have a working air conditioner this weekend. Perhaps one of those big metal floor fans will work, too. Seemingly everywhere across the nation will be dealing with extreme heat this weekend, and today’s baseball slate is feeling the impact.
With high temps come high totals. Oddsmakers are expecting runs to come pouring in today as much as sweat will be pouring out of the fans in the stands.
Here are the games that are seeing the best hitting conditions:
Highest Weather Ratings
- Padres-Cubs: 91 (highest we’ve tracked at Wrigley)

Would you look at that. We’re out here breaking records today, folks.
