This was a really informative edition of The Bettor’s Box. They all are, but host Adam Burke has seen a lot of trends and actionable betting angles popping up here so far this season and he shared them with our listeners today.
He started Beyond the Box Score with a look at Yankees vs. Astros, Padres vs. Giants, and Dodgers vs. Cardinals. He talked about some interesting exit velocity statistics and some eye-popping numbers on the totals market so far. He looked for regression candidates on offense based on high-velocity contact.
He also went Down the Lines to look at line moves dating back to Monday, including some surprising moves that didn’t happen or some buy back that came in unexpectedly. That was also the time that he gave a pick for today’s card.
Finally, a look at the weekend ahead led to some thoughts on Phillies vs. Marlins, Brewers vs. Dodgers, Astros vs. Mariners, and Pirates vs. Nationals.
