Odds and consensus percentages current as of 8 p.m. ET, Friday.
Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins (+115, 7.5)
The Marlins went into Friday’s action having won just two of their last 10. They send veteran lefty Mark Buehrle to the hill and he’s coming off a seven-inning shutout victory over Toronto. He squares off against Philadelphia’s Cole Hamels.
Consensus: Marlins, 69 percentCFL:
Toronto Argos at Edmonton Eskimos (Pick ‘em, 48.5)
Early bettors are pretty much split down the middle on both the side and the total for this one. The big plotline here is Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray opening the year against his former team. The Argos have been dominant on the road against the Eskimos, at 11-3-1 against the spread in their last 15 trips to Edmonton.
Consensus: Eskimos, 51 percentWNBA:
Seattle Storm at New York Liberty (-1.5, 140)
The New York Liberty are giving up almost 82 points per game this year and have dropped four of their last five both straight up and against the spread. Seattle’s going in the other direction, having covered the number in each of its last five. However, bettors are siding with the home team early on.
Consensus: Liberty, 61 percent
