Umpires and MLB Betting
Who knew that there were so many factors to consider when making MLB picks? If you are going to actually win, you have to be willing to consider every piece of information that is on the market. You have to consider umpires if you want to have a full picture of what is going to happen in a game. Some umpires have small strike zones. Others have large strike zones. You can find good information online that will tell you the relative strike zone of each umpire. With that information in your pocket, you can make better MLB picks by finding out where each umpire is going to be.
This information does not come out until just before the game begins. Often times, MLB.com will have the umpires listed when it finally lists the pre-game box score. You will have to be attentive if you are going to find this kind of information. It would be quite foolish to ignore it if you are going to be betting on totals. MLB picks on totals are largely dependent upon the success of starting pitchers. Whether or not they get the borderline strikes can have a major impact on run scoring.
