Betting Stats

Since we now have a month of data from the 2018 season to look at, let’s dive into the best/worst money earners for both teams and starting pitchers over the opening four weeks.

The top two teams on the Money Statistics table are, not coincidentally, the top two teams in each league. The Red Sox (19-5) top the table, earning 13.04 units for bettors, and the Diamondbacks (17-7) are close behind at 11.23 units to the positive.

At the bottom of the earnings table are the two worst teams in baseball in the Cincinnati Reds (-14.47 units) and the Kansas City Royals (-12.36 units). While it may not come as much of a surprise that the Reds and Royals are burying stacks of cash, the next team on the list may be a surprise to some – the Dodgers. Los Angeles is close to .500 at 11-12 heading into the weekend but they are burning chalk at a ferocious pace to start the season, costing bettors 11.54 units thus far.

In the Starter Money Statistics category, Phillies’ Nick Pivetta stands alone with a team win/loss record of 5-0 and an even 5.0 units earned for bettors. Interestingly, the Win/Under parlay is 4-0-1 in his five starts which speaks to how well he’s been throwing in 2018. Pivetta will climb the hill Saturday against the Braves with the Phils favored at -135 to -140.

At the bottom of the starter’s table is the aforementioned Kershaw. He had some hard-luck losses early in the season and his awful start against the Marlins pushed him all of the way to the basement at -7.76 units. Kershaw, obviously, pitches every game as a large moneyline favorite so it’s very easy to quickly burn piles of cash, but he was getting the same lines last year and he finished the season as the No. 2 money starter in baseball with 12.35 units earned.

Will Kershaw turn his season around? Yes. Will he be able to dig bettors out of the hole that he’s buried them in early in 2018? Not likely as a big favorite every start. And while you make your baseball picks take a look at these numbers.
