Fourth of July MLB Sharp Report: Heavy Action on Giants-Rockies

The Fourth of July holiday is primarily known for cookouts, adult beverages and fireworks, but it’s also a fun gambling holiday as well. Led by the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest and a full slate of MLB games, recreational bettors looking for a side of action to go with their Budweiser have everything they need for a true holiday sweat.


Interestingly, Joey Chesnut, the overwhelming favorite, won today’s hot dog eating contest, meaning public bettors who got down on the event likely won their wagers and have some extra bankroll to let loose on the evening’s MLB games.

However, sharp bettors are well aware of today’s influx of holiday recreational money and will obviously take advantage, especially if misinformed alcohol-inspired public action loads up on one side of the same game.

Looking at the rest of the day’s games, professional bettors are steadily buying back a contrarian opportunity in tonight’s San Francisco Giants-Colorado Rockies (8:10 p.m. ET) matchup.
