Home Teams

The most dominant betting trend of the 2017 MLB playoffs so far is home teams having their way with the visiting competition. Baseball teams playing on their field are 13-3 this postseason. For perspective, home teams went 18-17 last year in the playoffs and 19-17 the year before. If you'd bet $100 on the home team in all 16 games so far this postseason, you'd be up $617.53 or 6.17 units.

Home favorites are an even better 11-1 straight up and 9-2 against the runline. The Chicago Cubs are -160 home chalk tomorrow against the Washington Nationals in Game 4 of series while the Cleveland Indians are -180 home faves against the New York Yankees in the late game.

The postseason is supposed to be time for money arms to deliver, but that’s not what we’ve been witnessing this month. MLB starting pitchers own a collective 8.53 ERA in the playoffs and leading Cy Young contenders like Chris Sale, Corey Kluber and Clayton Kershaw have all gotten chased out of games early.

Not surprisingly, the over is 6-3 in the American League playoff games and 4-3 in the National League.

The Dodgers, who will play the winner of the Cubs-Nationals series, are the new favorites to win the World Series at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. The Astros are the second favorite at +225 and will play the winner of the Yankees-Indians series in the ALCS.

If they don't win it's a shame.

How should the yanks have won a game where they struck out 13 times and scored 1 run?
