Want to become a better baseball handicapper? Make The Bettor’s Box part of your weekly routine. Host Adam Burke goes in-depth on betting on baseball with tremendous insight and sabermetric analysis of the MLB betting market. This twice-a-week podcast is filled with detailed information that other podcasts cannot deliver. This show has helped countless listeners build their betting bankroll and it can do the same for you if you tune in to every episode.
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.
Going Beyond the Box Score is important because it can shed some light on how things are going for a team and also provide some valuable insight into what could happen in the future. The Pittsburgh Pirates were the first subject of this segment on Thursday’s show and they are a team on the rise. In other series that drew Adam’s interest, the New York Yankees swept the Kansas City Royals and the Seattle Mariners swept the Tampa Bay Rays. What can be taken from these three series that can apply to upcoming games? Tune in to find out!
The line movements segment also includes free picks for the games on the night of the podcast. Interpreting line moves is important for every baseball handicapper, because line moves in money line sports are definitely different than those in sports with spreads. Trends and tendencies were present again earlier this week and this knowledge can help you forecast line moves and prepare you for betting on those games. With several moves early in the week, including some on the same pitchers, this part of the show is critical for listeners. Adam also included two picks and a lean for Thursday night.
During the sabermetric portion of the show, Adam’s goal is to inform and educate the listeners on the world of advanced statistics, but also to uncover statistics, concepts, and trends that the oddsmakers are not paying attention to. On this Thursday show, the topic was base running and an advanced metric that encompasses all of the ways in which a team can be above or below average on the basepaths.
Regular listener Bob had a question about what the maximum price to lay on a game should be. It’s a question that plagues many baseball handicappers because of the money line nature of the sport. Do you agree with Adam’s answer?
With a daily fantasy tip and some thoughts about what to watch for over the weekend, this show covers all the bases and is something that any serious baseball handicapper, regardless of skill level, absolutely has to tune in to.
