There is a historically profitable betting algorithm developed by the Action Network that has a substantial betting edge for tonight’s game between the Red Sox and Royals.

The algorithm targets the moneyline and factors in injuries, matchups, conditions and more.

This edge provides about 5% in betting value, which indicates the pick has implied odds that are more than 5% higher than the odds available to you in the markets.

Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least a 5% betting edge, you’re incredibly likely to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.
