MLB favorites continue to crush it
Betting on favorites in the MLB continues to be the way to go for bettors, as they went 12-2 yesterday. That takes their record in the past 8 days up to 81-25 and a 76.4 win percentage! The only dogs to win were the Twins (+132 odds) and the Marlins (+143).

Best Bet of the Day
Chicago White Sox ML over New York Yankees
7.10pm ET, Fox
The first-ever MLB game in Iowa takes place tonight as the White Sox battle the Yankees at the Field of Dreams cornfield. The matchup will bring to life the beloved 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner, and it’s the White Sox who look set to come out on top. Chicago has one of the best offenses in the league and love hitting against left-handers, which is perfect for them as Andrew Heaney takes the mound for the Yankees. Make sure you check out our full game preview for this nationally televised game.
