MLB bettors often focus on lineups, starting pitchers, bullpens and a plethora of advanced metrics to find value across the long 162-game schedule.
And while some bettors, and DFS players for that matter, also consider weather, it’s still not something that everyone examines before making betting and fantasy decisions.
Obviously, strong winds blowing out will help fly balls carry further and can turn warning-track outs into home runs.
Conversely, gusty breezes blowing in will knock down well hit fly balls, often pushing would be round-trippers into long fly-ball outs.
Savvy bettors can find advantages by targeting overs in games with winds blowing out, while also getting down on unders when strong winds and gusting toward home plate.
With this in mind, here’s a look at today’s most important MLB weather forecasts.
