There are many factors that influence line movement when it comes to the MLB betting market, like sharp action, key injuries, players resting and weather.
And when it comes to weather, the winds in Chicago often have an effect on over/unders at Wrigley Field.
If the winds are blowing in to home plate, you’ll often see Cubs over/unders immediately drop. Conversely, if there are breezes blowing out to center, totals will typically increase as these conditions result in more scoring.
Today’s Padres vs. Cubs matchup is another one with strong winds, so much so that sharp bettors have already taken a position on Wednesday afternoon’s matchup.
Using the latest weather and betting market data, let’s pinpoint how the pros are playing Padres vs. Cubs.
