Recapping Yesterday’s MLB Model
At writing yesterday, the model would have gone 1-1 against full-game moneylines and 0-1 against moneylines for the first five innings (F5).
My tracked plays went 0-4, but I was 0-5 and down 2.25 units for the day.
I placed a live moneyline wager on the Athletics (-110) when they were tied 1-1 in the third inning before they subsequently blew leads of 4-1 and 5-4, wiping out a projected win probability as high as 94.6% in the bottom of the eighth inning.
It’s already in the running for my worst beat of the season, but I’m still not the least bit discouraged — it’s been a rough couple of weeks and I immediately backed Oakland again on Tuesday.
Monday was a mixed day in terms of generating Closing Line Value (CLV).
I gained 5 cents on that Oakland moneyline (+110 to +105) and 20 cents on the Detroit F5 line (+150 to +130) but lost 5 cents on the Pirates moneyline (+160 to +165).
On Deck for Tuesday, May 14
The model recommends two full-game moneylines and one moneyline for the first five innings (F5) on Tuesday.
