Host Adam Burke was in midseason form right away on today’s edition of The Bettor’s Box. Adam talked about what we’ve seen so far in terms of teams off to slow offensive starts and the reasons why. The new baseball may have a negative impact on some of the league’s best offensive teams, which led to some eye-opening analysis on offense and the teams that may end up struggling for this season. There are some big names on the list.
After looking at some other early-season outliers to talk about the concept of regression, Adam recapped some line moves that we’ve seen so far and forecasted some line moves that are likely to continue as the baseball betting market takes shape. A conversation about BABIP and a few picks for Thursday fed into a preview of the weekend ahead with thoughts on Angels vs. Jays, A’s vs. Astros, and Phillies vs. Braves.
