Will Betting the Dodgers Blindly Remain Profitable?

WILL BETTING THE DODGERS BLINDLY REMAIN PROFITABLE?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been by far the most dominant team in the majors this season. They are currently owners of a 79-32 record for a winning percentage of 71.2 percent.

$100/game bettors that have bet the Dodgers every single game have have earned a total of $3,057, with the bulk of the profits coming when they play at home at Chavez Ravine. They have banked a healthy $2,347 in profits at home, compared to $710 when they play on the road.

In other words, betting the Dodgers each and every game this season would have been auto-money, but can we expect that to hold true throughout the rest of the season?

LET’S CRUNCH SOME NUMBERS

At their current winning percentage of 71.2 the LA Dodgers would end up with a 115-47 record, by far the best since Seattle Mariners’ 116-46 season back in 2001.

The average line for the Dodgers has been -186, which by using the Odds Converter here at Covers.com gives us an implied win probability of 65 percent.

The Dodgers have 51 games left of the regular season, 21 at home and 30 on the road. That includes two three-game series at Arizona, a three-day stay at Washington and closing out the season with a three-game set at Coors Field. Not easy series at all, and as previously noted, the Dodgers have been far stronger at home than outside of LA.

We can also note that virtually each and every one of the Dodgers’ starters have over-performed in the sense that they have a higher xFIP than ERA, most of them by almost half a run. Those things tend to even out.

Let’s also not forget the fact how tough it is to play at top level throughout a season, no matter how good you are.

The Dodgers have lost three consecutive games just three times on the season, have never been swept, and they’re a phenomenal 18-3 since the All Star break. That’s remarkable consistency, but also not sustainable. I can almost guarantee a dip will come sooner or later, and you better not be chasing the Dodgers gravy train when it happens.

THE VERDICT

The Dodgers would have to go 33-18 through their last 51 games in order to beat the implied win probability of 65%. Not impossible, but that is assuming the books will keep the average line at -186.

Surely with every win the bookmakers will have to consider adjusting the price, and you can expect to pay significantly more to back LA if they keep winning.

There will still be some money to be made by backing the best team in baseball, but you really need to be careful and pick your spots from now on.

How about their chances of winning the World Series? The 2001 Mariners were knocked out in the ALCS in five games by the defending champion Yankees, a team that finished 21 games behind Seattle in the regular season.

Just another reminder that regular season and postseason baseball are two completely different animals.

Game Analysis

MIKE LUNDIN'S SHARKS @ SABRES NHL FREE PICK

The Buffalo Sabres are off to a red hot 7-1-1 start, but I think they're in for a tough game when hosting the San Jose Sharks Tuesday night.

The Sabres defeated San Jose 4-3 in the Shark Tank just a couple of nights ago so you better believe the visitors will be looking forward for payback. 

San Jose answered an 0-4 start to the season by winning three on the bounce prior to the setback to the Sabres and should be focused on kicking off a five-game road trip with a win.

The Buffalo players just might be feeling a bit too good about themselves right now and this spot favors the visitors in my opinion. 

Free pick on San Jose Sharks. 

Mike Lundin had yet another profitable week in the NFL to make it a WHITE HOT 30-12 (71%) NFL YTD, and Sundays in particular have been money in the bank as he's 19-5 ALL PREMIUM PICKS L3 SUNDAYS!

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.
