Please note that the information below does not constitute sports-betting recommendations, only a study of historic analytical edges as applied to today’s games intended to give you a head-start on research of your own.
All MLB bets are ranked in order of sports-betting profitability based on the pitching dataset explained in the video at the bottom of this analytics post as well as the over/under dataset shown in the video at the top of this post. All baseball-analysis terms are explained in this post.
MLB Analytics Betting Edges – July 4/2019
1. New York Yankees @ Tamp Bay Rays
Over the past decade, betting on conference home dogs featuring a low-WHIP (Walks and Hits per Inning Pitched) starter has returned a 9% ROI and has never had an unprofitable year. Today’s starter for Tampa Bay – the conference home dog – is Yonny Chirinos, who holds a WHIP of just 1.00.
EDGE: Tampa Bay F5
2. Detroit Tigers @ Chicago White Sox
Over the past 2 seasons Tigers starter Matthew Boyd has gone 10-5-1 in favor of the under as a favorite pitching against tired teams, good for 28% ROI.
EDGE: Under 9.5
CFL Analytics Betting Edges
3. Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ Montreal Alouettes
Over the past 14 years, the away team’s third and fourth games of the season has failed to reach the over 61% of the time, resulting in a 19% ROI for under bettors. In that time, the stat has been unprofitable for just 3 of 14 seasons.
EDGE: Under (I’ll likely be pairing it with the Hamilton spread as part of a 2-team 6-point +100 teaser on Pinnacle, meaning I’ll have a parlay of Hamilton -6 and under 62.5).
