Home Field Overvalued

Home teams got rolled over so far in the first half going 687-577 (50.43%), losing a gut wrenching -64.23 units for blind backers.  Oddsmakers know bettors severely overvalue home-field advantage and will typically shade the odds for home teams.  Home field, as it turns out, accounts for very little when it comes to the outcome of a baseball game.

Under Has Been a Winner

Blind betting every first half UNDER would have returned at 51.40%-win rate for a profit of +24.78 units, which any sports bettor would be happy to take to the bank.  Also, UNDER bets seeing 42% or less of wagers with a closing line of 8 or up went a very strong (57.1%) and a massive betting overs, which creates some inflated contrarian value to go the other way.

Betting every first-half under produced a 720-658 record (52.2%) for a profit of almost 60 units.

Yankees Getting Battered

The Yankees had the second shortest odds of winning this year's World Series after the Dodgers, but can they carry on with all the injuries piling up?

As of the writing of this article the Yankees (57-29) are 8.5 games up in the division on Tampa Bay and 3 games ahead of the Twins and Astros in the American League.  While this might not be all that surprising given the Yankees winning tradition and stacked lineup, they have been struck by the injury bug harder than anyone else in the league this year.  Currently there are 9 Yankees on the IL with Luke Voigt the latest Vitim after suffering an ab strain in London. The other IL members are

Miguel Andújar Out for season

Jake Barrett, Return TBD

Dellin Betances, Return in August

Jacoby Ellsbury, Return TBD (has not played since Nov 2017)

Ben Heller, Return in July

Jonathan Loaisiga, Return in July

Cameron Maybin, Return in July/August
