Day of the Week Trends in Sports Betting

“The Yankees are 7-0 on a Friday. Bet the Yankees!” You may have seen similar statements in handicapper writeups, on forums, or on web pages with trends for certain matchups. They’re known as Day of the Week Trends in Sports Betting.

Are these trends something worth taking into account when handicapping a game? The subject is dividing the handicapping world. Some refer to it as pure mumbo jumbo, while others won’t place a single bet without making certain it’s a favorable spot for their team and/or pitcher trend-wise, or an un-favorable spot for their opponent.

Athletes are Humans too

I certainly understand the skepticism for trends like this. In a perfect world professional athletes have all their focus on the task at hand, and they prepare for each game meticulously.

We do however not live in a perfect world. The athletes are humans too, and they have lives outside of the ballpark/arena/field that can, and will affect their performance.

How many times have we seen a player, sometimes whole teams, come out and underperform massively completely out of the blue? They have obviously not lost their ability, but during a long regular season it’s simply impossible to keep 100% focus for each game. I’m a firm believer that you’ll find day of the week trends backing up and predicting most such performances.

Applicable Home & Away – For Different Reasons

Day of the week trends can affect players both at home, and on the road, depending on the player.

A player is more likely affected by his personal relationships at home where he has his routines and is surrounded by friends and family who have their routines, but being on the road can definitely affect players as well.

Long stays at hotels, boredom creeping in and a night out on the town might all of a sudden be too much of a temptation to pass up on, especially if it’s a weekend. Sometimes it can affect whole teams, particularly younger squads who don’t have the experience to deal with long road trips.

Not all players react the same way though. This is where it can be important to know the players personality and individual weaknesses, but I think that’s micromanaging and it’s impossible to actually know for a fact what goes on in their personal life on a day-to-day basis anyway.

Day of the Week Trends in Basketball

A day of the week trend I think is worth taking into consideration is if a basketball team has a really good ATS record at home on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. The home town crowd is likely to be extra rowdy on weekends and can carry the home team to fantastic results. This is particularly true for home underdogs.

Likewise, a big home favorite is in the risk zone of running low on motivation after the weekend. Keep an eye for big-name teams who do poorly on Mondays and Tuesday, and look for spots to fade them when favored by 10+ points.

Are They Worth Paying Attention to?

One could argue that day of the week trends are particularly of value in baseball, as the starting pitcher is playing such a huge part, but are the trends of statistical value or just noise? Is it just trends that will occur randomly without actually saying anything?

That’s for you and me to decide individually. That’s handicapping.

Game Analysis

Mike Lundin's Brewers @ Diamondbacks Free Pick

The Milwaukee Brewers and the Arizona Diamondbacks combined for 17 runs Friday night. I expect runs to be harder to come by for both sides here in Game 3 of the series on Saturday.

Milwaukee hands the ball to left-hander Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 3.19 ERA) for his first start since landing on the injured list on June 1 due to arm fatigue. Each of Gonzalez's six starts this season have gone under the total and he owns a solid 2.93 ERA in eight career starts versus the D'Backs.

The Brewers turn to Zack Greinke (10-4, 2.95 ERA) who gave up five runs at St. Louis last time out, but he had held both Colorado and San Francisco scoreless over a combined 14 innings prior to that. Greinke owns a mediocre 4.07 ERA in eight career outings (seven starts) against the Brew Crew, but he has their current roster limited to a .221 AVG over 122 at-bats. 

Under is 5-2 in Greinke's last 7 starts overall. Under is 5-1 in Diamondbacks' last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Free pick on UNDER. 

Mike Lundin has DOMINATED THE BOOKIES with his top-rated plays across all sports for quite some time, currently sitting on for +$19,000 in profits dating back to September 1, 2018.

He has picked 11-7 ALL MLB premium picks over the last five days and he's a RED HOT 4-1 with his top-rated plays during that stretch. 

The sharp move is to invest in a subscription to ensure you don't miss a single premium pick.

SERVICE BIO

A former poker pro, Mike Lundin made his picks available to the public in June of 2014. The late start didn't stop him from finishing as the #8 handicapper overall for the year with a profit of $34,970 for $1,000/game clients! He has since racked up multiple Top 10 finishes across several sports.

Betting Philosophy

Mike Lundin's experience as a professional poker player has proven to be an immeasurable asset in sports handicapping. He's a numbers guy, with a keen eye for spotting trends and stats that just don't jive with the odds offered by the books. Mike's plays will rarely be on huge favorites, he prides himself at finding value in close match-ups and although Mike's considered a moneyline/spread specialist, when he releases totals play you better believe he's got something special cooking. 

***Mike's Picks***

All Mike's plays included in his premium packages come with high quality analyses. Mike rates his plays between 1-10* with 10* being the maximum. Most plays will be 8-10* as he advocates more of a flat betting approach in order to minimize the variance. 

Be sure to check out his long-term subscription offers to get the most bang for your buck. 

***Accomplishments***

Soccer 2014 - Finished the year 77-61, +$17,530

MLB 2014-2016 - Earned $1,000/game betting clients a total of $20,880
