Adam Burke was dialed in on the latest edition of The Bettor’s Box with tremendous baseball betting insight and analysis for the listeners. His wildly popular show takes a deeper look at baseball with sabermetric statistics, regression analysis, and other concepts that you won’t find on most other podcasts. As we get deeper into the season, lines get tighter and betting gets harder because of the grind of the season. Use this show and Adam’s other great content here at BangTheBook to help you through.

Listeners of the show can also hit Adam up on Twitter at his handle, @SkatingTripods, to talk baseball betting, topics for the show, or any other sport at BangTheBook. He’s always willing to discuss baseball, as well as the other sports. Don’t hesitate to ask him for more clarification about sabermetrics or about the observations that he has seen in previous games.

Beyond the Box Score is a popular segment on this show because it serves as a recap of what happened and is also a look ahead to how the past results could impact the future. With series finales left between the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers, as well as the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs, Adam covered his observations to date in the series. He also recapped the series between the Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners, closing with a disappointing outlook on the rest of the season for Mariners fans.

Line movements are always interesting in baseball. The early part of this week was no different, as it seemed like line moves were driven solely by the public, leading to smaller moves. This led Adam into a very important discussion about betting on baseball this time of year. You’ll definitely want to hear what he had to say about the betting market and the line movements.

Projection systems have become increasingly popular as their accuracy has improved over the last few seasons. These are a tool that can be used before and during the season to look at player performance and see which players are going to improve and which ones could fall off. These are something that you can add to your handicapper’s toolbox and utilize as you see fit. Adam had some thoughts on that, as well as three daily fantasy tips for listeners that are still participating in the day-to-day grind.

There are a few key series over the weekend that will have some impact on the standings. Adam took some time to discuss those before wrapping up another tremendous show of baseball betting insight.
