Tuesday's Major League Baseball slate is not only a full, 16-game schedule, but it's also offering plenty of smart betting opportunities.
As of the time of writing, there are five bets across the slate showing with betting model edges of greater than 3.5 percent.
In fact, the values are also remarkably consistent, with four of those picks popping with edges of at least 4% as well. Additionally, some of these edges can be improved simply by shopping the market for the best available baseball odds.
Our MLB betting model projections are compared to consensus lines in order to identify potential edges.
But, as always, be sure to check in at as many shops as possible as there is often a sportsbook or handful of sportsbooks offering a more valuable price than the consensus number.
So, with this in mind, here are the top baseball betting model picks.
