This divisional matinee between the Marlins and Phillies has sharp, big-money and expert bettors giddy about one side of the moneyline.

One of our top MLB handicappers is tailing this side of the ML, and so are sharp and big bettors across the country, according to tracking data proprietary to Action Network.

In conjunction, a betting system with an 8% return on investment (ROI) is also targeting that same side this afternoon.

If you had bet $100 on each game that has fit the betting algorithm, you'd be up about $15,000 since 2005. That's roughly $900 per year.

For reference, the annual average return of the S&P 500 — roughly the value of the American stock market — has been 8% for about a century.

Since the start of the New Year, the S&P 500 has been down about 14%. Bitcoin, for another example, is down about 50% year-to-date.

Still, don't use this system as an alternative to investing — sports wagering inherently involves more variance.

Marlins vs. Phillies Smart Money Action 

The Action Network's proprietary tracking data has detected sharp and big-moneyed bettors all on the Marlins moneyline for this matchup.

The best price on the market is with WynnBET, which is pricing this contest at +150.

The 8% ROI system, meanwhile, also lights up Marlins ML. The betting algorithm focuses on below-average teams that retail bettors hate betting.

The moneyline bet percentage on the underdog visitor needs to be between 0% and 29%, meaning only a small portion of the public is wagering on them. The moneyline also needs to have moved in the opposite direction since open.

Fading retail bettors and their sensibilities is one of a few ways to gouge value out of the market.

In addition, Sean Zerillo, one of our top MLB handicappers, is on the Marlins to win tonight as well.

PRO Report Pick: Marlins +150 or better
