Opening Day MLB Schedule 2023

And here we go! Nothing beats the excitement of Opening Day. Each team is 0-0 and has hopes of making the postseason. And before you say certain teams “have no chance” just remember how great of a feeling it must have been if you bet the Cleveland Guardians to win the AL Central at +2500 last year at this time.

Yep, that Cleveland team that “had no chance” paid very well, didn’t they? Our yearly predictions will be out very soon, however for right now here is the Opening Day schedule along with the odds for each game and a few of our best bets.
