*Odds and public betting trends data as of Friday afternoon. Find real-time odds here.
1. Warriors vs. Celtics
9 p.m. ET
Game 4’s attracted 25,000 wagers and counting with plenty of time to spare. The public, it seems, is split in virtually every major betting market.
We’ve logged 51% of the tickets on Golden State plus the points and 56% on the Warriors moneyline. The +4 spread is the largest for the Warriors in an NBA Finals game since head coach Steve Kerr took the job in 2014.
The over/under, meanwhile, is at a dead-even, 50-50 split at the time of writing.
2. Cubs vs. Yankees
7:05 p.m. ET
The red-hot Yankees have ripped off eight of nine entering the week. They own the best record in baseball (41-16), while $100 bettors hitting every moneyline would be up north of $1,500 so far this season.
Bettors are going back to the well in the opening game of an interleague series against the Cubs, with 85% of the near-14,000 wagers on New York -250.
3. Diamondbacks vs. Phillies
9:40 p.m. ET
This NL tilt’s generating a five-figure ticket count ahead of the early window, and another chalky favorite’s producing the bulk of the volume.
We’ve logged 77% of the moneyline bets on the Phillies, who carry a seven-game winning streak into the weekend.
4. Pirates vs. Braves
7:20 p.m. ET
The Braves are firing on all cylinders, winning eight straight.
After Atlanta beat Pittsburgh on Thursday night, 70% of the moneyline bets like the Braves to make it nine in a row tonight.
5. Blue Jays vs. Tigers
7:10 p.m. ET
The final matchup on Friday’s board with 10,000-plus wagers is Toronto-Detroit. It’s more chalk for bettors, with 88% of the run line (-1.5) bets and 82% of the moneyline tickets on the Jays.
