Major League Baseball held the first half of its Opening Day on Thursday, with four teams getting the abbreviated 2020 season underway. On Friday, the bulk of the league throws the first pitches of their seasons.
July 24th brings with it an ESPN triple-header, and MLB Network double-header, and another game on ESPN+. Plenty of local action will be available, but the entire country gets to enjoy a full schedule of action on Friday.
Here’s how the national TV schedule looks (all times ET):
4 p.m.: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets — ESPN
6:10 p.m.: Detroit Tigers at Cincinnati Reds — MLB Network
7 p.m.: Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs — ESPN
7:30 p.m.: Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox — ESPN+
9:10 p.m.: Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros — MLB Network
10 p.m.: Los Angeles Angeles at Oakland Athletics — ESPN
Below, we’ve got a look at money line odds for the full slate of games. The Astros are the biggest favorites on the day at -335, followed by the Red Sox (-250) and Cleveland Indians (-225). The Astros opened at -286 while the Red Sox opened at -195. Heavy public money on both has moved the money line in a big way. The Astros and Red Sox are also getting minus money on their -1.5 run lines, so we’ll see how heavily bettors leaning into big favorites.
