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.

The second half of the Major League Baseball season is in full flight and the opening ceremony has officially kicked off the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. There is plenty to bet on both today and in the near future. When it comes to MLB action, bettors especially like the Houston Astros and Francisco Giants.

Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far.

MLB: Houston Astros -1.5 over Texas Rangers

On the baseball diamond, bettors’ favorite play of the day is on the Astros to win by multiple runs against the Rangers. Houston on the -1.5 run line is inspiring a massive 94 percent of the handle and 95 percent of the bets. On the money line, the Astros are -210 favorites. The public certainly isn’t scared away by that juice. A total of 81 percent of the money and 94 percent of the bets are backing Houston to win straight up.

MLB: Chicago San Francisco Giants ML over Pittsburgh Pirates

Bettors are also hammering the Giants in their home date with the Pirates. San Francisco on the -170 money line is getting 97 percent of the money and 94 percent of the wagers. Punters are quite willing to give the -1.5 runs, too. The Giants are bringing in 98 percent of the handle, and 89 percent of the bets are going in that same direction.

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Mets Over 8.5

When it comes to game totals, the public is all over the over in this meeting between the Blue Jays and Mets. A bloated 90 percent of the wagers are supporting Over 8.5 and 75 percent of the money is doing the same. Bettors are not as enthusiastic about either side on the money line or the run line.

Check out our full game preview.

Olympic basketball: USA -12 over France

The United States’ first basketball game at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will come on Sunday, when the gold-medal favorites go up against France. Bettors are already looking ahead to that opening contest in pool play, with 68 percent of the handle and 76 percent of the wagers supporting Team USA -12. The bettors also like Over 177, with 78 percent of the money and 74 percent of the wagers going in that direction.

NASCAR Cup Series championship: Kyle Larson to win

With NASCAR off this week, DraftKings has taken a look at the futures market. Larson is the favorite for the season-long championship (+280) and he is being backed by bettors more than anyone else. With 21 percent of the bets going for Larson, he is inspiring 38 percent of the handle. No other driver is garnering more than eight percent of the bets (Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott) or 13 percent of the money (Busch).
