Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have another busy day in the world of sports, with a full 15- game schedule in Major League Baseball and 11 Major League Soccer matches. Also on the immediate horizon is more NFL preseason action, the continuation of the 2021-22 English Premier League campaign, and the beginning of the FedEx Cup Playoffs at The Northern Trust. Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far on Wednesday.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays -1.5 over Baltimore Orioles

Bettors’ favorite MLB play of the day is on the Rays to win by multiple runs against the Orioles. Tampa Bay on the -1.5 run line is inspiring a bloated 99 percent of the handle and 95 percent of the bets. On the money line, the Rays are massive -365 favorites. The public certainly isn’t scared away by that juice, though. A total of 94 percent of the money and also 94 percent of the bets are supporting Tampa Bay to win straight up.

MLB: Seattle Mariners ML over Texas Rangers

Bettors are also hammering the Mariners in their road date with the Rangers. Seattle on the -165 money line is getting 80 percent of the money and 89 percent of the wagers. Punters are quite willing to give the -1.5 runs, too. The Mariners are bringing in 82 percent of the handle, and 63 percent of the bets are going in the same direction.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies vs Arizona Diamondbacks Over 9.0

When it comes to game totals, the public is all over the over in this meeting between the Phillies and Diamondbacks. With 81 percent of the wagers supporting Over 9, 81 percent of the money is doing the same. There is also a lot of interest on Philadelphia. The Phillies are getting 88 percent of the handle on the -1.5 run line and 96 percent of the handle on the -165 money line.

MLS: Atlanta United ML over Toronto FC

Atlanta United has a new manager in place, Jozef Martinez is happy again (and scoring goals), and in turn this club has won 2 matches in a row—an absolutely hot streak by the standards it set for itself earlier in the season. Bettors are staying on the bandwagon for Wednesday’s home date with Toronto FC. The Five Stripes are inspiring 74 percent of the handle and 75 percent of the wagers at -135 on the 3-way money line. We have to agree. In fact, Atlanta is our best bet of the day as you will see in today’s Wise n’ Shine betting primer.

Golf: Bryson DeChambeau to win the Northern Trust

Bryson DeChambeau is generally among the favorites whenever he suits up for a tournament. However, he has played only once in the past month (two weeks ago in Memphis) after being forced to withdraw from the Tokyo Olympics because of a positive Covid-19 test. You can get him all the way down at +2900 to win The Northern Trust, putting him behind Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, and Justin Thomas. DeChambeau is bringing in only 3 percent of the bets, but that translates to a whopping 14 percent of the handle. Clearly there are some huge bets being place on the 27-year-old American.
