Wake and Rake: Sharp Bettors All Over Mets-Phillies Matchup

Aug 17, 2018 6:00 PM EDT
  • Sharp bettors are targeting tonight's New York Mets-Philadelphia Phillies (6:05 p.m. ET) matchup in early Friday MLB betting.
  • Public bettors are betting the opposite side of today's Wake and Rake matchup, paving the way for plenty of wiseguy action.
  • Not only are sharps on this game, but intangibles also point toward over value in Mets-Phillies, even with two aces pitching.

As the kids say these days, it’s been a hot minute since my last Wake and Rake column.

The combination of one newborn and the terrible twos means it’s been slow-going here at WnR headquarters, especially during the incredibly slow summer sports calendar.

However, that is all about to change.

Baby girl is starting to sleep, and football is right around the corner, meaning there will be plenty of games for sharps to pick apart and, in turn, an increase in opportunities for us to pinpoint early line value.

I highly recommend downloading The Action Network’s mobile app to not only get notifications every time I enter a Wake and Rake bet, but to also access a wealth of proprietary live betting data and the ability to track your own picks.

Tonight’s New York Mets-Philadelphia Phillies (6:05 p.m. ET) game is drawing both professional and public action and, wouldn’t you know it, both sides disagree on where the value lies.
