Athletics Odds -125

One of the most efficient ways to find value in a daily sport like MLB, especially considering the 162-game schedule, is to leverage a winning betting model.

The Action Network’s MLB PRO Projections, powered by Sean Zerillo, do just that by creating projected lines for every game, then comparing them to current odds to determine the biggest betting edges across a given slate.

And when it comes to Monday’s MLB slate, Zerillo’s numbers are pegging tonight’s Blue Jays vs. Athletics matchup as one with a very nice edge — one so attractive that it’s already quietly attracting significant money.

Let’s take a look.

MLB Picks: Blue Jays vs. Athletics

Big Money

The Blue Jays vs. Athletics under has landed 51% of the tickets, suggesting relatively balanced betting thus far.

However, The Action Network’s MLB money percentages show that 70% of the loot is also falling on the under, a dead giveaway that the biggest bets have hit that side of the total.

Model Projections 

Our PRO Projections set the Blue Jays vs. Athletics total at 7.71, which pops as a B-minus graded, 4.2% edge to the under when compared to the current widely-available 8.5 number.

Top Experts

And with betting model edges often comes expert consensus, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing with today’s Blue Jays vs. Athletics under.

At the time of writing, one of The Action Network’s premier MLB bettors has piled on this wager as well.
