The Bettor’s Box is a new kind of MLB betting podcast. Adam Burke gives out a plethora of great baseball betting information twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. This show goes in deep detail with sabermetric analysis and in-depth insight to help listeners become more informed and win money. With some tips for daily fantasy baseball, some picks, and some things to look at for the upcoming series, this is a show that covers all the bases.
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.
This show began, as it usually does, with a look Beyond the Box Score. The first series that went under the microscope was the series between the Houston Astros and San Diego Padres. The Astros swept the Padres and outscored them by a 30-9 margin. Adam spent a good amount of time on this series because the Astros are going to be a popular team moving forward. Plus, their performance was rather surprising again a Padres team that many people have high hopes for. What concerns did Adam express about the Padres?
Another series that was discussed Beyond the Box Score was a look at the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners. The Mariners swept the Rangers with Felix Hernandez on the hill on Wednesday night. Does this change Adam’s perception of the Mariners? How about the Rangers? This series was definitely one to discuss.
Adam took a look at line moves from earlier in the week and some line moves for Thursday night. Sometimes it’s hard to determine where line moves are coming from and why they are happening. That’s why it’s important to take the time to understand what the catalyst may be. More often than not, it’s because of the starting pitcher. What should bettors be looking for when breaking down the lines?
Thursday’s pick is on a battle of aces. One is due for some positive regression and the other is due for some negative regression. What’s the rationale behind the pick? Do you agree?
Moving into the sabermetric stat for this Thursday edition, ERA-FIP was the topic of discussion. What is the significance of this statistic? Can you apply it to your handicapping? Of course you can and it’s going to be a very valuable starting point for you when breaking down the games.
With a daily fantasy tip and a look ahead to weekend series between the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles, as well as the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals, this show covered a lot of great stuff. No other MLB podcast goes as in-depth on baseball and betting on baseball as this show does. Take advantage and make it a part of your daily routine on Mondays and Thursdays.
