The final edition of The Bettor’s Box for the first half of the 2017 MLB season came your way today, as host Adam Burke broke down what has happened lately in the world of baseball and what could be on tap for this weekend. This installment of the show was shorter than most of the ones that we’ve had this season, as we look ahead to the All-Star Break, a little bit of downtime, and a weekend to limit exposure.
Speaking of that, we won’t have an edition of The Bettor’s Box on Monday nor we will have a Tuesday Takeover broadcast on Tuesday. We’ll be back on the air next Thursday with a new episode of The Bettor’s Box as we look ahead to the second half and evaluate some of those futures and outlooks for teams with the Trade Deadline just 18 days away.
On this show, Adam started with a look Beyond the Box Score, as he lamented his decision to lay off the Blue Jays, who took two of three from the Yankees. He also talked about Milwaukee’s sweep of Baltimore, the Royals’ sweep of the Mariners, and just how dominant the Los Angeles Dodgers look. Before transitioning over to our look at the betting market, he had some words of caution for bettors looking to invest this weekend.
We’ve seen some interesting developments of late in terms of the betting market and that’s why this Down the Lines segment is so important. We’re seeing a lower number of moves, but a greater amount of movement over the last few days. Adam talked about that and also about some of the biggest movers and betting angles of the week before giving out his top pick for Thursday night’s action.
The weekend ahead features some challenging handicapping angles, as players get ready to represent their teams in Miami at the All-Star Game or get ready to hang out with friends and family at home or on vacation. Four series do stand out with some interesting betting angles and pitching matchups, as Adam covered the Brewers vs. Yankees, Astros vs. Blue Jays, Tigers vs. Indians, and White Sox vs. Rockies to wrap up the first half of the season.
Join us in a week for a July 13 edition of The Bettor’s Box.
