It's Monday and that means another edition of The Bettor's Box, BangTheBook.com's MLB betting podcast. Host Adam Burke's season is off to a really bad start and that forced him to open the show by talking about the mental side of handicapping and the challenges in this relentless business. Then it was time to answer listener questions during the Monday Mailbag segment. Those questions centered on the movie Major League, beer, baseball, and arbitrage opportunities and what they mean.
A look Beyond the Box Score tackled Indians vs. Blue Jays, Tigers vs. Royals, Nationals vs. Mets, some league-wide trends, and early results for favorites and big favorites. The Down the Lines segment looked at early results for big line moves and also the line moves that we've seen since last Thursday's show. After a pick for Monday night, Adam previewed the week ahead with thoughts on Yankees vs. Astros, Indians vs. Tigers, Dodgers vs. Cardinals, and Twins vs. Mets.
