  • Sunday was good to the public, as the three most popular bets from yesterday all won.
  • Today the public has landed on three more favorites: the Red Sox, Yankees and Angels.

Public bettors had a successful Sunday, as all three of yesterday’s most popular MLB plays cashed. Looking to continue that hot streak, the public has once again loaded up on three favorites on Monday’s 13-game slate.

Boston Red Sox (-177) at Baltimore Orioles

7:05 p.m. ET

The Red Sox have drawn 87% of bettors accounting for 88% of dollars tonight in Baltimore, making them the most popular team on the board. That heavy support has taken them from -166 to -177.

Why the public loves Boston: Somehow, the 70-win Sox are only -177 against a team on pace to have the worst record in baseball since 2003. At that price, I’m honestly surprised this percentage isn’t in the 90s.

New York Yankees (-270) at Tampa Bay Rays

7:10 p.m. ET

Public bettors haven’t forgotten about the other AL East powerhouse either. The Yankees have landed 77% of bets and 87% of dollars thus far to move from -265 to -270.

Why the public loves New York: Luis Severino has been the fourth-most profitable starter in the bigs this season. The Yankees have won an incredible 18 of his 20 starts, and bettors have accumulated seven units from those wins.


Los Angeles Angels (-205) vs. Chicago White Sox

10:07 p.m. ET

With 79% of bettors behind LA, the Angels are tonight’s second-most popular bet. They’ve landed only 44% of dollars, but have risen a bit from their opening number of -200.

Why the public loves LA: With a win percentage of .347, the White Sox won’t be attracting many bets regardless of the pitcher they send to the mound. So when they’re throwing the worst pitcher in baseball — Lucas Giolito’s ERA is the highest among qualified pitchers this season — what would you expect?
