MLB Weather: Monday Night RAW Hits the Baseball Slate
Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports.
- Two games tonight will be wet, windy and chilly, with the Tigers-Red Sox game featuring a significant rain-out risk.
- The Nats and Rockies play at Coors Field, but the park is boasting unusually poor hitting conditions per our historical database.
How was your Easter? I personally had a good time because all three of my Boston teams won. As far as actual Easter celebrations go, I did nothing.
We’re being eased into a new week with just 10 games on the board, though I have a feeling there could be only nine thanks to some wet, raw conditions in the northeast.
A Trip To The Lab
Tonight, there are two games that are quite similar — Tigers-Red Sox and Phillies-Mets. Both will be rainy, windy and a bit chilly. All-around April rawness.
Per Bet Labs, games with an average temperature of 60 degrees or less and winds blowing in have gone under nearly 60% of the time.
Highest Weather Rating
- Brewers at Cardinals: 58
Weather Ratings are a proprietary number created by FantasyLabs, which are on a 0-100 scale, with 100 being the best hitting atmosphere and 0 being the best pitching atmosphere. Weather Rating takes into account temperature, wind speed, wind direction, stadium elevation, humidity and atmospheric pressure.
Wait a second … where is Coors Field? Shockingly enough, the Nats-Rockies game has a Weather Rating of just 42. In over 400 games logged at Coors Field in FantasyLabs’ Trends tool, this is just the 14th with a Weather Rating of 42 or lower. The lowest we’ve ever tracked was a 28 in a game last April in which the Rockies blanked the Padres 8-0.
The total for tonight’s Rockies game has remained at a lofty 11 since opening, though the juice has moved in the under’s favor.
