Free MLB World Series Picks: Today’s Best Bet

Our MLB betting expert Jason Radowitz provides his best bets from the day's Major League Baseball slate.
Founder of American Betting Experts. Not an expert but asks a lot of the right questions.

The NFL moves into Week 6 and we have gone ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ to speak to the PointsBet traders and find out who has been bet by the public, who has been bet and by the sharps and who we should bet on this weekend.

At we always endeavour to bring you the best free picks and bets for the weekend’s NFL. We also try to share any inside info we can get from the sportsbooks.

This week we’ve gone one further and actually gone direct to the sportsbooks themselves and asked the PointsBet traders to share with you the key information on what is being bet by the sharps, where the public money is going, and what the guys in the trading room of the sportsbook think is going to happen on NFL Sunday.

What game has attracted the most bets this weekend? 

POINTSBET:  Ravens @ Eagles … We always have a lot of action on the Birds given New Jersey is where we first launched, but usually Philly fans are a bit more confident in their team than they have been so far this season

Which team have you taken most bets on? 

POINTSBET: The LA Rams (-3, vs. San Francisco) … Betting action should be quite interesting given how poorly Jimmy G played last week, and folks seem to have a strong opinion as to whether that performance was a legit struggle or due to injury

Who/what is your biggest liability?

POINTSBET: Chiefs (-4.5) at Buffalo … some interesting line movement so far in this one, but nobody seems willing to bet against KC coming off a loss…

Which points spread has moved the most since opening line? 

POINTSBET: We opened Miami -8 (vs. NYJ), and they are now out to -10 … The Jets are quite clearly the worst team in football, and bettors agree

Which total has moved the most since opening line? 

POINTSBET: Packers @ Bucs total opened at 54 and is now out at 55.5 … Very hyped matchup with two will-be Hall of Fame QBs … Should be a good one, I personally think Green Bay gets the W

Has there been any market moves that have surprised the trading team this week? 

POINTSBET: Not that surprising, but was interesting to see the Chiefs go from -3 to -3.5 and now out to -4.5 against the Bills. All happened very quickly.

Who are you still keen to be against? 

POINTSBET: Ravens… Philly is having a tough go at it right now, and things don’t seem to be getting any better any time soon

And who will you want to be with?

POINTSBET: Want to see some money come back in on Bills side. Siding with the Chiefs coming off a loss

Do you expect to see many more moves over the weekend? 

POINTSBET: Absolutely, we’ll see a decent amount of movement as we get closer to Sunday… particularly in this COVID-19 NFL season where anything can happen

And, finally, if you could recommend one bet to our readers this weekend, what would it be?

POINTSBET: Packers ML… The Bucs may have Tom Brady, but they are not elite just yet
