Despite receiving just 30% of bets, the Pittsburgh Pirates have received 40% of the betting money in advance of their series finale on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. (source)

Betting Impact:

It is not a large discrepancy, but the difference between percentage of bets and money wagered does imply that the larger bets have come in on the Pirates. The Chicago Cubs will almost certainly be the more heavily bet team by the time first pitch comes, as they are one of the more public teams in all of baseball. As a result of the betting action, Pittsburgh's odds have lowered from +180 to +170, according to BettingPros consensus odds.
