World Series Trends

When it comes to the World Series, taking the home team has been the way to go. Home favorites have done extremely well in recent seasons, winning about 2/3rds of the time. Home underdogs in World Series betting at Diamond sportsbook are not as common and they are just about a 50-50 proposition. One factor that gives the home team more of an advantage in the World Series is the rules. The American League team has a disadvantage on the road as they don’t have the DH. It is not quite as much of a disadvantage to the National League team going on the road as they simply need to find a bench player to play DH.

Left-handed pitchers are 12-7 at home, including 11-5 as home favorites and 1-2 as home dogs. But left-handers are 16-8 as favorites and the favorite is 10-2 in games featuring two left-handed starters. Due to that 10-2 record, left-handers are a poor 4-16 as underdogs.

When it comes to betting totals, taking the under has been the way to go. It is not a huge edge in World Series betting as oddsmakers are making the totals lower but it is still hard to make a case for betting the over when the pitching has been so good. And in recent years, the lower the total the better it has been with more than 60% of the games with totals of 6, 6.5 and 7 going under.
