MLB: Sunday Baseball Records Might Surprise2010-06-19
When handicapping baseball day-in and day-out, there is a lot to consider, such as team and pitcher power ratings, bullpen strength, hitting stats, defensive numbers, and even injury factors. Of course, it’s often valuable to look at teams’ situational records, and StatFox offers a plethora of these on its Team Report pages. We’re here today to look at performance on a particular day of the week over the last 2-1/2 seasons, that being Sundays.
We’re not just looking at Sunday because that’s what day it is today, although the timing hopefully will prove valuable. More importantly though, Sunday games in baseball present a pair of situations that can prove definitive over the course of the season, those being most often 1) Day Games and 2) The Final Games of a Series.
You may be saying to yourself, who cares how a team does on Sundays? Or “This type of information is just fluke anyway”. However, keep in mind that baseball can be a superstitious game, and a team’s preparation, be it going out late in an unfamiliar city on Saturday night, or perhaps even going to an early brunch, can often lead to less than typical results. Plus, if you’re one who believes heavily in numbers and trends, how can you argue with some of the results below.
Is it a fluke that the New York Yankees have been almost unbeatable at home lately on Sunday, or that Tampa Bay plays way below its normal standard on the Lord’s Day? Who can explain with certainty why Houston produces so well for bettors on this particular day of the week?
In any case, these are the team that have produced the most distinct results on Sundays over the last 2-1/2 seasons, sorted by units won/lost.

System Play shows Washington at disadvantage2009-08-19
The Washington Nationals are like the dimmest bulb on a set of outdoor lights, they standout for not shining brightly. While the Nationals have a comfortable lead as the worst team in baseball with 43-76 record (-24.1 units), they do deserve props for playing like paid professionals and not throwing in the towel. Even with last night’s loss, Washington has won eight of 12, thanks to a potent offense that has average 6.6 runs per game, compared to season average of 4.5 runs per contest. (Be certain to review all the latest information for Wednesday’s wagering events by visiting the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.)
In spite of playing better baseball, the Nationals have earned their stripes as the worst team in the game. Washington has the highest earned run average in the National League at 4.98. When the starting pitchers fail, which is often the case, a collection of less than desirable relievers take their place, with an even worse ERA (5.07). Washington’s non-starters have brought little relief as 17-33 record proves and the recent spike in run production has helped the closers get over the .500 mark (.533) since the first week of the season.
The Nats were 4-3 losers to Colorado last night in Game 1 of the series and will face the ace of the Rockies staff, Jason Marquis (13-8, 3.55 ERA). The veteran right-hander has embraced pitching for Colorado and has spearheaded a staff which has contributed mightily to the Rockies leading the wild card race in the senior circuit, while within striking distance of the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers.
Colorado (66-53, +10.6 units) is giving no indication of fading away, winning seven of last 11 and continuing to play surprisingly well on the road with 34-30 record, despite a team batting average of .238.
Colorado is 30-14 (+21.5 Units) against the money line after three or more consecutive road games this season and will face starter Collin Balester (1-2, 6.00), who has been allowing the long ball early and often. The rookie right-hander has surrendered three homers and five runs in each of his last two outings. Washington comes into this contest 13-34 revenging a one run loss to opponent over the last two seasons.
If this doesn’t sound like a great situation for Washington, it’s not and Colorado is a -160 money line favorite at Sportsbook.com. Here is the situation the Nationals face tonight.
Play Against home underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are ordinary offensive team scoring 4.3 to 4.8 runs per game, against a good NL starter (ERA of 3.70 or less), after a loss by two runs or less.
This system has been a reliable winner for a dozen years at 52-14, 78.8 percent. For the most part, these games have not been close, opening the door for potential run line action, with a score differential 2.6 runs. Take a closer look at this contest, the odds lineup in the bettor’s favor on the road favorite.
