Is Fading Slumping Pitchers a Good Strategy For Successful Betting?

Baseball Betting Picks and oddsIn the world MLB betting, being able to find an advantage of the sportsbook can be one of the more difficult tasks you have to endure. When it comes to the MLB, nothing helps your bank account, like fading slumping pitchers. As the name suggests, fading slumping pitchers simply means, that every time you take part in sports betting on the MLB and a bad pitcher is on the mound, you take the team they are facing. Today we will be looking at several can’t miss fades all season long.

The Toronto Blue Jays have been one of the more unpredictable teams in the MLB this season, as despite being 12 games out of first in the American League East, the fourth place Canadian club could very well be a top the standings in a few other divisions. One of the main reasons the Blue Jays find themselves in fourth in the AL East, is because of former fifth starter Jo – Jo Reyes. Reyes took the majority of the first half of the season, to collect his first win in an astounding 28 starts over three years. Since Reyes struggled at the big league level, the young Blue Jays also struggled to pile on wins.

A few weeks ago, the Toronto Blue Jays designated Reyes for assignment, and the Baltimore Orioles picked him up for pitching depth.

The Orioles are a team that most people fade, as they have been a terrible team for the last five years, constantly having the proverbial smack down laid on them. With Reyes on the Orioles roster, more bettors are fading the team than ever before.

In other MLB baseball news, sometimes fading pitchers can be a misleading venture. Essentially, a pitcher may not actually be terrible, but the offense of their team is what is causing a losing streak. For instance, earlier this summer the Seattle Mariners lost 17 games in a row, as they were swept by the entire AL East division. However, while losing 17 games is absolutely terrible, if you look closer at the Mariners pitching rotation, you will see a young group of arms that are ranked in the top 10 in the entire MLB.

On the other hand, good teams also may have bad offenses and good pitching rotations. For example, Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants would be considered as a staff ace for many rotations, if he wasn’t behind Tim Lincecum. Cain has lost all three starts in the month of August, as the Giants offense has seemingly gone to sleep for their annual midsummer slump. The Giants have lost two in a row and six of their last 10, as the offense has been shut down. Giants starters, which aside from Philadelphia’s rotation, are considered to be the best, have pitched with an earned run average of under three and a half in the last 10 games.
