In our quest to have the most comprehensive sports betting site in the industry, we have added a new show to our weekly rotation of great audio content. “The Bettor’s Box” is our new twice-a-week MLB betting podcast hosted by BangTheBook.com writer and personality Adam Burke. This show can be heard on Mondays and Thursdays and will cover some important MLB wagering information, including betting line analysis, free picks, and a daily fantasy sports component to help you dominate those DraftKings and FanDuel pools.
This show is designed to help listeners improve as baseball handicappers. With a sabermetric stat of the day and a discussion on how to bet on baseball, the amount of information crammed into each episode should help build your baseball betting bankroll. Listeners of the show can hit Adam Burke up on Twitter at his handle, @SkatingTripods, to talk baseball betting, topics for the show, or any other sport at BangTheBook.
Monday’s inaugural edition took a look at the Opening Day card with 14 games and 28 teams in action. It’s an exciting time of the year for fans of almost every team and that optimism creates biases in the betting market. Adam focused on two lines that seem to have some bias in them that bettors can exploit on Monday night and also discussed what makes betting on baseball different from any other sport. Money line sports are a different animal than basketball and football, so you’ll want to hear what Adam had to say and what his advice was for listeners.
The show included a pick for Monday night on an underappreciated starter against a starter in line for regression. Two teams moving in different directions in the NL East face off on Opening Day and this line has a lot of value for bettors looking to start the season off in the win column.
With the twice-a-week format, it’s important to look ahead to the games on the days in between shows as well. Two games in particular, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday, have piqued Adam’s interest. The Oakland Athletics made a lot of changes in the offseason to add pieces and perception seems to be down on the A’s right now. Tuesday’s line could provide some value on the home team. On Wednesday, two oft-injured starters face off in an AL East battle that will tell us a lot about the division’s most potent offense.
