MLB Tuesday Weather: A Counter-Intuitive Trend for Angels vs. Rangers
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports.
- Fifteen MLB games dot Tuesday's slate, and as one could expect, most of them have poor hitting conditions on this April evening.
- The Angels-Rangers game is the one exception, and looking at our historical data, we find an interesting Texas trend when looking at wind direction.
Fifteen baseball games — all at night. I believe this is a 2019 first. Unless you live in the southern part of the country, you probably know that April nights aren’t entirely pleasant. That is exemplified by tonight’s Weather Ratings, which are basically subpar across the board.
Luckily, we don’t really have any precipitation to worry about. A couple of ballparks have an outside chance of a rain shower, but delays and postponements look to be unlikely.
A Trip To The Lab
There’s something about Globe Life Park in Arlington. No, not in the same way that there’s something about Mary…
Globe Life, which will succumb to its terminal disease at the end of the season, is one of the best parks overall for under bettors when the wind is blowing in.
With that said, one would imagine that it’s also one of the best parks to bet the under when the wind is blowing in from right field. But it’s exactly the opposite.
Evidently, the wind has a lot of trouble making it past those right field bleachers, as overs have crushed in these situations. If you only look at games with temperatures of 70+ degrees, the ROI improves by 2%.
The two most common wind directions at the park are “in” and “from right” so you may want to take advantage of these trends before the park is dead and buried after the end of the 2019 season.
