Host Adam Burke has often been put between a rock and a hard place in terms of betting the 1st 5 or the full game. On today’s edition of The Bettor’s Box, he talked through what goes into the process of making that decision, both from a side and total standpoint. Adam looked at some situations where that could be relevant today as examples.
Then he took a look at some pitchers that have either had good luck or bad luck based on their velocity numbers as we look for some pitchers to fade and some to follow. After that, he talked about the Saber Stats, yes plural, of the show, surveyed some recent line moves, and gave a pick for Thursday night. Finally, Adam previewed a few series for the weekend ahead, with Indians/Mariners, Mets/Rays, and Cardinals/Padres.
