MLB 2017 season just finished its first month, so time to get back to analising and betting on baseball.
Interesting 30 days, till now, so let’s have a look at the standings:
|Chi White Sox||14||12||0.538||0.5|
Some very big surprises in here. Yankees young team has a very good record with 17 wins and 9 losses, but can they hold on to the lead as the season progresses ? Without Edwin Encarnacion, gone, and Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson most of the days injured, the Blue Jays have an awful start, and they are the worst team in the American League.
The biggest surprise in the Central Division is Kansas City, who are the last and very far from the 4th place, after winning the All Series 2 years ago. They lost tragically, Yordano Ventura, but it’s the batting that is the main problem. They are last in the whole league when it comes to RBI, only 71 scored in 26 games, 19 less than the A’s, who are 29th in scoring. Dreadful.
Finally, in the West, the Astros are dominating without any doubt.One of the best rotations, and also very efficient batting. We could see them having one of the best records in their history, if they continue to keep the good shape.
In the NL, things tend to be the same like in 2016, when it comes to the Eastern and Central Divisions, with the Nationals, dominating and the Cubs leading, but when we check the West, we start to be amazed. Giants, who have, basically, one of the best pitching rotations, are the last, and till now the worst of all teams in the conference. And if things weren’t bad enough, their star, and certainly the best atbat SP in the world right now, Madison Bumgarner got injured, and we’ll be back after the ASG. There may come even darker clouds over the AT & T. At the top, right now we can find the Rockies and the D-backs who have pleasured us with many RBIs already. Will they continue their good play ? We’ll just have to wait.
That’s all for the 1st month. you can vote below who is the most surprising team in the first month, but right now let’s get down to analysing what matches we can bet daily.
