MLB odds, predictions, picks: Experts take aim at Nationals today

Only 10 games fill today’s Major League Baseball schedule, but expert bettors have still identified value sides.

All information to be presented is drawn from the Action Network PRO report, which provides betting percentages and five “signs” – hard money, big money, PRO systems, model advantage and expert picks – that help distinguish certain plays.

Today’s report sees three money line losers triggering at least most of the five signals. Without further ado, let’s examine the recommendations.

MLB Predictions, Odds and Picks from Experts

Game 1: Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals, 7:05 p.m. ET

The Braves come into this contest having won 11 straight games, including a four-game sweep of the Pirates last weekend, but punters like the Nationals.

We have seen a lot of money coming into the Nationals money line, which opened at a consensus price of +137 but is now between +116 and +130. Also, big money rollers like the Nationals: At the time of this writing, the Nationals have seen only 15 percent of all bets against 56 percent of total handling.

Additionally, an Action Network PRO system, Betting Against the Public, activates the Nationals. That system, which primarily targets divisional losers with less than 29 percent of all bets, has a historical win rate of 45 percent and an 8 percent return on investment.

Finally, two of The Action Network’s top MLB betting experts back the Nationals to give you four signs in their favor.

The Phillies have won nine of their last 10 games, but pundits back the Marlins tonight as underdogs on the road.

We have seen strong action in Miami, which saw its money line open at +135. However, the current maximum price available has dropped to +124 with most books between +110 and +120. Plus, a lot of money is also supporting the Marlins. As of this writing, Miami has seen 64 percent of all bets against 89 percent of total handling, the highest percentage of money among all underdogs today.

Finally, two MLB betting experts from The Action Network are backing the Marlins tonight to give them three signs in their favor.
