Sharp action ahead on three picks Thursday


Only 10 games fill the Major League Baseball schedule today. However, expert bettors always find value in specific matches.

All the information about to be presented is taken from the Action Network PRO report, which provides betting percentages and five “signals” – net money, big money, PRO systems, model advantage and expert picks – that help to distinguish certain games.

Today’s report identified two sides – both underdogs – and a total that trigger at least the majority of the above signals. So, without further ado, here are the top recommendations.

Game 1 — Seattle Mariners at Oakland A’s, 3:37 p.m. ET

The Mariners cleaned up the first two games of the series by an overall margin of 17-2, but the pundits back the A’s tonight.

Oakland, which sends Frankie Montas to the mound on Thursday, saw strong action on its opening price of +110 and is now between +108 and +115. What’s more, the big bettors are also backing the A’s – at the time of this writing, Oakland has seen just 17% of all bets versus 41% of total bets.

Finally, one of The Action Network’s top MLB betting experts is backing the A’s tonight to give them three signals in their favor.

Game 2 – Baltimore Orioles vs. Chicago White Sox, 8:10 p.m. ET

The White Sox and Orioles begin a four-game series tonight in Chicago and the pundits are choosing to back a total.

We followed intense under betting action, which opened at nine runs and held at that number thanks to early bets. Moreover, big bettors are extremely interested in this total. At the time of this writing, this market only had 38% of all bets, but 94% of total management.

Finally, there is an Action Network PRO system – Weather: Wind Blowing In – which triggers the under in this game. This system, which seeks sustained winds between 5 and 35 mph on closing totals between 6 and 11, has a historical success rate of 55% and a return on investment of 7%.

Game 3 — Philadelphia Phillies at San Diego Padres, 9:40 p.m. ET

The Phillies and Padres begin a four-game series tonight in San Diego and expert bettors are intrigued by the underdog Phillies.

We saw some sharp action hitting the Phillies moneyline, which opened at +130 and largely held around that number. Additionally, big bettors on the Phillies are also attracting interest – at the time of this writing, they’ve only seen 18% of all Moneyline bets compared to 40% of the total.

Additionally, there is an Action Network PRO system – Contrarian Betting Against Good Teams – triggering the Phillies tonight. This system, which looks for underdogs on a small losing streak receiving less than 35% of all bets, has an all-time win rate of 41% and an ROI of 11%.

Finally, two of The Action Network’s top MLB betting experts are backing the Phillies tonight, giving the visitors four signals in their direction.
