Pro Baseball Preview: Odds, Trends for Key Games on July 26

Bet baseball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

July is wrapping up, but the baseball season isn’t slowing down. There are nine MLB games tonight to start off the week, including a doubleheader between NL East rivals and an underdog generating noteworthy action against one of the top names in the game.

The Braves and Mets kick off the action today at 5:10 p.m. ET/2:10 p.m. PT in Game 1 of their doubleheader from Citi Field. New York will trot out Marcus Stroman for this 7-inning affair, while Atlanta has lefty Kyle Muller on the mound. Odds for Game 2 of the doubleheader are not available yet.

The Mets (52-44) lead the NL East by four games over the second-place Phillies (49-49) and five-games over the third-place Braves (48-50), so today’s doubleheader is a prime opportunity for Atlanta to gain some ground.

New York is a -150 favorite at William Hill, whereas Atlanta is +140 and the total currently resides at 6.5. The Mets opened at -150 and reached as high as -160 before coming back down to its original number.

The majority of William Hill bettors are siding with the first-place team at home, as the Mets have collected 60% of the total number of tickets and 63% of the total dollars wagered for all moneyline bets. There’s division with the total, though, as the over has the advantage with 56% of the total number of tickets and the under has the edge with 54% of the total dollars wagered.

At 7:10 p.m. ET/4:10 p.m. PT, another first-place squad hosts a division foe. After taking 3 of 4 against the Yankees, the Red Sox now face the Blue Jays at Fenway Park. Boston has a one-game lead over the Rays in the AL East, while Toronto is in fourth place and 9.5 games behind.

With the road team sending out Thomas Hatch and the home team starting Nick Pivetta, the Red Sox are now -135 chalk. Boston opened at -125 at William Hill and has since jumped up 10 cents. Toronto is at +125 and the total sits at 11, which is the highest on today’s slate.

Boston has snagged 71% of the total number of tickets and 68% of the total dollars wagered for all moneyline bets. Even with the high total, the over is still reeling in 54% of the total number of tickets and 59% of the total dollars wagered.

Shohei Ohtani will be on the bump for the Angels tonight, as the two-way star faces German Marquez and the Rockies in front of his home fans at 9:38 p.m. ET/6:38 p.m. PT.

Even with Ohtani on the mound, the line has dropped noticeably in this one. The Angels opened at -150 and the Rockies were at +140, and went up to -157 and +147 respectively. Yet, Los Angeles is now at -142 and Colorado is positioned at +132. Meanwhile, the total is at 7.5.

While the Angels have received 82% of the total number of tickets for all moneyline wagers, the Rockies have gotten 73% of the total dollars wagered. That is highlighted by one Nevada bettor putting $50,000 on Rockies +144 for a total potential payout of $122,000, which is the biggest bet taken in any MLB game today at William Hill. There’s more alignment on the total, with the over grabbing 68% of the total number of tickets and 69% of the total dollars wagered.
