Today’s sports betting frenzy is all about MLB Opening Day. For the first time since 1968, all 30 teams were scheduled to play (though Nationals-Reds has been postponed due to inclement weather). With the hype of a new season and games all day, MLB fans will be watching and betting.

 

But as I’ve mentioned in various Wake and Rake columns, professional bettors aren’t concerned with the popularity of an event. Instead, wiseguys are only interested in the value that a specific betting line offers, no matter the sport.

With the sports world focusing on MLB Opening Day, sharp bettors are pivoting and making a big play on tonight’s NIT Championship game between Penn State and Utah (7 p.m. ET).
