Baseball Betting Trends: Cubs Still Hot, Totals

By Jonathan K.

Baseball betting trends change constantly so we are here to help you keep up with where you can smartly lay your money on baseball today.

Cubs Still Seeing A Lot Of Betting Action

After going 17-2 over their last 19, the Chicago Cubs are back to being World Series favorites in the future odds. It was just a few short weeks ago that the likes of the Giants and Nationals were closing in. That is not the case anymore thanks to a Nationals three-game skid and the Giants now battling for a wildcard spot.

Chicago is also a team bettors are looking at to cover against the Colorado Rockies. In their last series the Cubs outscored the Oakland Athletics 14-3 over the series. Betting trends also see the Cubs may favor the OVER on the total as they have scored at least three runs over 20 of their last 21 games.

Total Betting Trends

The Padres can’t seem to find home plate over their last handful of games. Over their last six four have hit the UNDER which is the best UNDER stretch in the MLB.

On the opposite end, the Phillies have hit the over in their last nine games. A hugely impressive OVER run. Philadelphia hit the OVER in their last road game against the Dodgers and will return to SoCal for their next game where bettors are looking at the OVER again.
