Rangers vs. Tigers MLB Odds
|Time||1:10 p.m. ET|
It may be arguably the slowest time of the yearly sports calendar, but that has not stopped savvy bettors from banking a couple of units from Wednesday’s MLB slate.
A 7-0 Mets win over the Reds easily finished under the 10.5-run total. The Giants topped the Dodgers, 4-2, putting San Francisco two games ahead of Los Angeles in the NL West and cashing a nice +140 ticket for bettors.
Thursday’s nine-game MLB schedule isn’t the most enticing, but as we learned yesterday: That doesn’t mean there isn’t betting value to be found.
Let’s take a look.
Rangers vs. Tigers MLB Pick
The current market consensus total for Rangers vs. Tigers is 9.5. However, the sportsbooks still at 9.5 are heavily juiced toward the under, while a handful of others, including BetMGM, have already made the move to 9 (click here for live MLB odds).
Why? Because oddsmakers are seeing big bets falling on the Rangers vs. Tigers.
Just 43% of bettors have taken the under in this game, yet those tickets account for 51% of the money.
It’s not largest discrepancy between bets and dollars, but the combination of these percentages and recent line movement confirms that sportsbooks are starting to adjust to building liability on the Rangers vs. Tigers under.
One of The Action Network’s top MLB bettors has also gotten down on the Rangers vs. Tigers under, adding even more credibility to this bet.
