The start of another work week means another episode of The Bettor’s Box, our outstanding MLB betting podcast with Adam Burke, is ready for your listening pleasure. This show features a little bit of everything for betting on baseball. With a look deep into the outcomes of the games, plenty of sabermetric analysis, daily fantasy sports advice for MLB contests, and so much more, this is a show that every baseball handicapper needs to listen to in order to beat the books at baseball.
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.
The show began with a look Beyond the Box Score. This segment is full of observations from Adam that listeners to use and apply to betting on future games. All four series that were discussed were divisional rivalries. The first was the series between the Washington Nationals and New York Mets. Other division rivalries in the AL East, AL Central, and NL Central were under the microscope.
Line moves are always a part of the picks segment because it’s important to see how the betting markets are responding to what the oddsmakers have to say on the games. There were some interesting line moves over the weekend and some trends are starting to develop with pitchers that bettors want to back and want to fade.
Monday’s show included two picks on a couple of live underdogs. Both of these plays are on pitchers that should be ticketed for some regression. Regression analysis is one of Adam’s favorite ways to handicap baseball. His reasoning for both of these picks should make sense to listeners and cashing plus money bets is always a fun thing to do.
Nobody goes more in depth on baseball than Adam and Monday’s show included a breakdown of some PITCHf/x data. What other podcast is going to talk about that? You’re not going to find one. One of the best parts about this show is Adam’s ability to talk about tricky concepts in a way that listeners can understand and appreciate. PITCHf/x data and sabermetrics can really take a handicapper’s skill set to the next level.
With daily fantasy tips and some thoughts on the games coming up prior to Thursday’s show, fans of The Bettor’s Box are able to be more informed than other baseball handicappers because of the content of this show. It’s well worth the time to listen.
