Host Adam Burke got seven questions for the Monday Mailbag today and four of them served as the basis for today’s MLB betting talking points. Three additional questions on the return of sports and the betting handles that we are going to see, wiffle ball, and how Adam has been using his downtime kicked off the Mailbag, but it was the last four questions that gave us today’s baseball discussion.
How do we handicap using the same information that the books have? Why did right-handed pitchers dominate the discussion of lefty/righty splits last week? Why are big favorites so profitable in Major League Baseball? What are stabilization points for other statistics? The last question was the more detailed and in-depth response from Adam, as he talked about exit velocity, barrel rates, stabilization points for hitters and pitchers, and so much more. It was a great question and a great show.
