• Accuscore's MLB 2020 Championship Series Predictions

    Four teams remain in the MLB’s expanded playoffs 2020 and the no.1 seeds from both leagues are still going strong. The Yankees put up an admirable fight against the Tampa Bay Rays, but the American League regular season winners held their ground and took a late 2-1 victory in the deciding game 5 of the divisional series. While being touted as one of the best pitching squads in the league, before the decider it was the Rays hitters coming in strong and outscoring the Yankees heavies in high-scoring fixtures. Pitchers then got the job done in game 5.

    The lowest seeded team in the American League, Houston Astros sent Oakland Athletics packing, despite entering the playoffs with a losing record. Astros hitters found their form at the eleventh hour and blasted 33 runs against the A’s struggling pitchers allowing 3-1 win in the series. Astros pitching squad didn’t always impress, but with the firepower available, they seem capable of outscoring their opponents.

    The National League was much more predictable and both favorites, Dodgers and Braves blew through without much trouble, sweeping their respective opponents Padres and Marlins in three. The top of the line pitchers were impeccable through the series and solid hitting provided all-around overwhelming displays against the much weaker opponents. But now the top teams face each other and it will be a whole new ballgame.

    Accuscore's MLB 2020 Playoffs Predictions for Championship Series

    Accuscore’s Picks and Predictions

    The Dodgers are still favorites to go all the way, but the Braves are putting up a remarkable challenge. We raised Braves as one of the dark horses (odds of +1700) in the World Series race before the season and they still have a chance. In the simulations, Dodgers take the series with 60% probability, with 4-2 being the most likely result with 20% probability. There is a tiny ounce of value in picking the Braves to surprise the Dodgers, with odds of +184 | 2.84 available – the value is less than 5% but there it is and at least to start with, the sharp money is supporting Braves as well . Another value bet could be made for Dodgers winning the series in seven games, with odds of +500 | 6.00 available, but the value is less than 2% here.

    In the American League, it all seems very even throughout the simulations results. Rays are the favorites but only with a two-percent margin. We are likely to see six or more games with over 60% probability and it is going to be a thrilling series. The oddsmakers indicate Rays a clear favorite, so there’s a good opportunity to play against the house - like plenty of public bets seem to be - and take the Astros to end up in the World Series with odds of +140 | 2.40 available and some 6% of value to be gained compared to simulations and 48% probability to progress.For those loving the long shots, there’s some value in taking the Astros in five or six games, with odds of +800 | 9.00 and +750 | 8.50 – value is around 2-3% here.

    With the Championship Series being as close as it is, there’s not much value in picking the World Series winners as of yet – or rather, anymore. Dodgers and Rays are the clear favorites and if we’d have to pick, we would still go with the Dodgers. Their probability to win is around 37% and the odds indicate closer to 40%, so there is no value to be had at the moment. Besides, we already took that value at +335 earlier on!

  • Accuscore's MLB 2020 Playoffs Predictions - Wild Card and Divisional Round

    The condensed MLB 2020 regular season has come to an end, with 60 games played per team (or most of the teams) and more than half the clubs entering the post season. Eight teams from both leagues will participate in the historical MLB 2020 Playoffs, taking place in various grounds all over the States. First round, also known as wild card round, is played the best out of three, while the divisional round is best out of five. The remaining two rounds, the league championship and then the World Series are still best out of seven - so there is plenty of baseball to be played and the winner should be clear by the end of October.

    The schedule for the regular season was tight, with some 47 games postponed and most of them then played as 7-inning doubleheaders. The fixture list remains packed, as there’s no rest for the teams between the games of the series, as would usually be the case. The first round will be played entirely in the home ground of the higher seeded team, so there’s some home advantage – if there ever was one. For the rest of the playoffs the MLB will enter the infamous bubble and the games will be played in seven separate locations.

    While the new playoff-format might allow lower seeded teams a tad higher chance to overcome the odds, there are still clear favorites based on the performance in the regular season. But as is usual, Accuscore’s simulations have predicted some surprising results heading into the MLB 2020 Postseason, most likely against the public opinion.

    Accuscore’s American League 2020 Playoffs Predictions

    Here are the simulated, most probable results in the American League Wild Card and ALDS rounds.

    Accuscore's MLB 2020 Playoffs Predictions Wild Card Divisional Round

    The series in the AL are fairly evenly matched, which was to be expected. New York Yankees seemed dominant at times during the regular season, but had a torrid final chapter which pushed them down to sixth seed. In simulations, those hard times are over and the Yankees overcome Cleveland, who did enjoy a good final run, winning eight of their last 10 games. In a short series, the Yankees have enough firepower to take the win, but Cleveland will not go down easy.

    With the favorites Tampa Bay and Minnesota holding the fort, if only narrowly, it comes down to Chicago White Sox to provide another shock in the AL Wild Card round of 2020. While Oakland might not be amongst the favorites to win the World Series, they had a remarkably good season and climbed all the way to third in the AL – but White Sox were only one win behind. It will be an intriguing matchup and no surprise if it takes all three games to settle the score.

    In the divisional round, Yankees are still favored by a hair over the Rays, but it is as close as it’ll get. It might come down to the depth in the pitching department, especially if the series go long. Not much rest for those heavy arms, so the relievers and spotters need to be at their best at all times. The same goes in the other ALDS game between the Twins and White Sox: we are most likely to see a 5-game-series of all-even-fixtures. Keep an eye out on the pro gambler's MLB picks to find the best values throughout the playoffs.

    Accuscore’s National League 2020 Playoffs Predictions

    Here’s how the simulations predict the National League Wild Card and NLDS rounds.

    Accuscore's MLB 2020 Playoffs Predictions NL Wild Card Divisional Round

    If in the AL it was all even-steven, in the NL it goes the other way: the only even remotely close matchup is played between the Cubs and the Marlins, who were hugely underrated before the season. Cubs are favored in that matchup as well, so it seems all the top seeds are likely to progress to the next round. The Dodgers are by far the most impressive team in the simulations so far and give Brewers no chance in the Wild Card round, but also demolish San Diego Padres in the NLDS series. It bodes well to remember, though, that a lot can happen between here and the next round and even the Dodgers are vulnerable to injuries or lack of form from certain key players (yes, we are staring at you Clayton Kershaw). That being said, there’s not much that can go wrong for the Dodgers and they are the number one horse going forward.

    Atlanta Braves was picked by Accuscore as one of the dark horses early on the season and they have delivered. Overcoming the Reds should not prove too problematic and the Cubs seem to pose no threat either. Cubs should be able to beat Miami rather easily, but Marlins have stood their ground after being undermined by everyone. Look for some statements coming from Florida. The Padres were impressive during the regular season and might hop into the shoes of the Dodgers if they fall from grace once again. Cardinals, on the other hand were not exactly impressive after barely managing a winning record – and playing two games less than any other playoff-team.

  • Accuscore's MLB 2020 World Series Predictions

    It might be way too early to make any very detailed predictions for the World Series, the supercomputer can give us a good clue where to look at when placing our pre-playoffs bets for the MLB postseason. Accuscore's predictions for the Wild Card and Divisional Round proved a couple of suprises, but the further we go, the more likely the favorites are to conquer. In Accuscore’s simulations, two teams have been overwhelmingly powerful throughout the season: New York Yankees in the American League and Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League.

    These two teams have also provided plenty of profits, as Dodgers were +555 in Accuscore’s Side Value selections and New York Yankees took the paycheck home in Moneyline selections, with hefty profits of +1675. The sharp money

    After simulating the MLB 2020 Playoffs for several thousand times, the supercomputer’s predictions are here for you to see. As expected, Yankees and Dodgers are to go head-to-head in the World Series 2020, after sustaining the challenge from Minnesota Twins, Atlanta Braves, Tampa Bay Rays and San Diego Padres. Dodgers are a narrow favorite to win the World Series, but it is worth to keep an eye out on the developments around the league. A good idea is to find out where the public money flows and then act accordingly - either go with the flow or against. The season has already been extraordinary and might turn even stranger – and even more profitable.

    Here’s how the final rounds of the playoffs are most likely to go, according to Accuscore’s simulations.

    Accuscore's MLB 2020 World Series Predictions

    Accuscore’s World Series Picks

    More often than not the outright odds for the MLB World Series are not worthwhile, unless shooting for a long underdog – such as Washington Nationals last season. This season makes no exceptions in general, but attacking with Dodgers might be worth a try. In Accuscore simulations, at the moment, before a single playoff-game is played, Dodgers’ probability to win the WS hover around 23%, which is more than 10% above any other team. So if you can find odds of +335 | 4.35 anywhere, there’s some value to take the clear favorites this time around.

    Other notable choices include Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins, both of whom are one big obstacle distanced from the World Series, but if either of these make it that far, why not all the way? Attractive odds of around +1300 | 14.00 are available, while Accuscore’s simulations indicate odds of +1000 to +1200 to be closer to truth, Atlanta having around 9% probability to win and Minnesota approachin 8%. Both are, obviously, longshots but the return is plentiful even with a smaller stake. And more exciting than going with the huge favorite.

  • Analyst Pick: Dodgers vs Diamondbacks

    LA Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks – 4th of July

    July 4th MLB action features a slate of must-watch games, but the night caps off in Los Angeles as the 52-31 Arizona Diamondbacks head to Chavez Ravine for a matchup with Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. L.A. is a home favorite, listed at about -270 on the money line, with Arizona getting +245.

    Dodgers vs Diamondbacks

    Don't let the odds fool you - this matchup projects to be a lot more competitive than initial Vegas odds indicate. The Diamondbacks have 18 of their 31 losses on the road this season, but enter this series with tons of momentum, coming off a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers have a 2.5-game lead over the Diamondbacks in the NL West heading into Tuesday's matchup.

    Betting Trends

    • The Diamondbacks are 7-1 in their last 8 road games.
    • The Diamondbacks are 18-6 in their last 24 overall.
    • The Diamondbacks are 18-6 in their last 24 games on grass.
    • The UNDER is 7-1 in the Dodgers' last 8 games following a loss.
    • The Dodgers are 46-15 in their last 61 home games.
    • The Dodgers are 25-9 in their last 34 games played on a Tuesday.

    What to Watch For

    Kershaw makes his 18th start of the season, with Patrick Corbin (6-7, 4.76 ERA) on the mound for Arizona. Corbin got the start against the Dodgers on April 15, giving up 5 runs (3 earned) in six innings of a 8-4 loss. Kershaw -- despite his 12-2 record with a 2.32 ERA on the season -- has struggled this year. Well, relatively. He has already given up a career-high 17 home runs, but seems to be getting back on track in his past few starts.

    Keep an eye on Dodgers catcher and second baseman Austin Barnes. He had a strong outing against Corbin last time around with a HR against the lefty. Barnes heads into Tuesday's matchup after putting up 7 RBIs and 2 HRs on Friday vs San Diego.

    Best Bet(s)

    Looking at who's on the mound for L.A., it's tough to suggest any pick other than the Dodgers winning this game. The Dodgers win approximately 65 percent of simulated matchups.

    Trends vs Data

    AccuScore sim data suggets taking the OVER in this game - the total combined score goes OVER 7.5 in over 57 percent of simulations.

    Recent trends between these two teams, however, suggest the opposite. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Diamondbacks' last 6 games when playing on the road against the Dodgers.

    With Arizona's relative struggles on the road and Kershaw on the mound, my lean would be on the UNDER.

    Analyst Pick: Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays

    The Boston Red Sox host the Toronto Blue Jays Monday in a matchup that opened with the home side slightly favored at -130 on the money line (ML) in Vegas, indicating a 56.5 percentage chance of winning. The line settled to -123 at the time of publication, with the Blue Jays getting +113 money line odds. The total is set at 9.5.

    Pitching Matchup

    Stroman heads into Monday's matchup with a 9-5 record and an ERA of 3.28. He has 93 strikeouts over the 112.1 innings he's pitched this season, allowing about 9.1 hits per 9 innings pitched. Toronto's bullpen hasn't been relatively as great with an ERA of 4.29. The team overall is No. 18 in the majors with an ERA of 4.57.

    Boston's Eduard Rodriguez heads into this matchup with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.54. He has given up 49 hits in the 61 innings pitched this season, allowing about 7.2 hits per 9 innings pitched. He's backed up by a bullpen that has an ERA of just 3.08, with the team overall allowing 8.6 hits per nine innings. They're No. 3 in the majors with a team ERA of 3.79.

    Key Stat No. 1: Boston is No. 2 in opponent strikeouts per walk at 1.98.

    Key Stat No. 2: The Red Sox rank No. 2 of 30 MLB teams in opponent strikeouts per nine innings (7.12), a few ticks behind league-leading Houston (6.86).

    Key Stat No. 3: Boston is No. 4 in terms opponent stolen base percentage; Toronto, on the other hand, is ranked No. 28 of 30 in the same category.

    What to Watch For

    Stroman has been fairly impressive this season for Toronto, entering this matchup after giving up just one run and six hits his last time out (July 8). He was favored slightly on the money line (-137) and came through for bettors. Batters are connecting on his pitches less than 32 percent of the time, and just a shade over 18 percent of his fly balls end up as HRs.

    Betting Trends

    Toronto is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Boston.
    • Toronto is 2-5 in their last 7 vs. the AL East.
    • Toronto is 6-15 in their last 21 games vs. a left-handed starter.
    • Toronto is 6-13 in Stroman’s last 19 road starts.
    • Boston is 11-4 in their last 15 home games vs. a right-handed starter.
    • Boston is 4-1 in Rodriguez’s last five starts at home.
    • The UNDER is 18-6-3 in Toronto's last 27 road games vs. a left-handed starter.
    • The UNDER is 6-2 in Boston's last eight home games.
    • The UNDER is 4-0 in Rodriguez’s last 4 home starts.
    • The UNDER is 16-5-1 in Rodriguez’s last 22 starts vs. the AL East.
    • The UNDER is 4-0 in the last four meetings between the two sides in Boston.

    Analyst's Pick

    Boston averages 4.8 runs per game in 2017; Toronto averages 4.16. The averages for this current season indicate a pick on the UNDER.

    The Red Sox are struggling on offense over the last week or so, and best of all, the UNDER is a our-star AccuScore hot trend pick.

    I'll take the UNDER.

    MLB Futures Picks Win Big AGAIN!

    With the regular season over, we take a look back at AccuScore’s predictions from the start of the season, when AccuScore simulated every regular season games 10,000 times with theseresults.

    Naturally, AccuScore made six season totals picks at the start of the season. And naturally, of the six picks, AccuScore predicted five season over/unders correctly. Cincinnati went Under by 5.5 wins, Detroit went Under by 21.5 wins, Minnesota went Over by 14.5 wins, the New York Mets went Under by 19.5 games and the Baltimore Orioles went Under by 9.5 wins. In truth, these were comfortable winners.

    The Colorado Rockies outperformed the computer’s expectations and even bagged a wild card spot. 100 units wagered on each pick would have returned 350 in profit into your pocket. Even though your money is tied up a bit longer in season future bets, 58.3% ROI is difficult to beat. Reminder that the value picks from 2016 season had three out of three correct.

    All of AccuScore's Expert Picks: MLB Playoffs Game Picks

    Generally, the biggest surprises during the regular season were the Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Minnesota Twins and Arizona Diamondbacks with record 13-14 wins more than Vegas offered a season earlier. For Arizona, Houston and Minnesota, this means the season continues into the playoffs.

    On the other hand biggest disappointments were the Detroit Tigers, San Francisco Giants and New York Mets, which all dropped 20+ wins fewer than Vegas linemakers calculated before the season. When comparing results from last year, the Giants and Tigers win total dropped over 20 games between these two seasons.

    Before the season Accuscore predicted five teams that had over 70% probability to reach playoffs. The Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, LA Dodgers and Washington Nationals performed as predicted and are playing during the postseason. Only the Toronto Blue Jays struggled quite a bit and were not able to live up the predictions and expectations for American League’s runner up from the 2016 had.

    Betting Trends

    Let's take a look at a matchup and what stands out.

    Cardinals @ Pirates | Friday, 4:05 PM Pacific

    The Pittsburgh Pirates -- assuming weather doesn't become a factor -- will host the St. Louis Cardinals with the home side slightly favored (-120) and the total set at 8. The Cards have Mike Leake (6-7, 3.12 ERA) on the mound, matched up across from the Pirates' Gerrit Cole (7-7, 4.43).

    From the St. Louis side, Leake enters the matchup with 74 strikeouts over his 109.2 innings pitched this season; he has given up 102 hits. He allows 8.4 hits per 9 innings and he has a FIP of 3.96. The bullpen has an ERA of 4.12. As a team, St. Louis allows 8.5 hits per nine innings, striking out 8.4 batters. They are 6th in the league in team earned run average at 3.97.

    For Pittsburgh, Cole has 94 strikeouts over the 107.2 innings he has pitched, giving up 113 hits.. He's also given up 113 hits. He allows 9.4 hits per nine innings. As a team, Pittsburgh is 12th in the league in team ERA 4.19.

    All of AccuScore's Expert Baseball Picks

    Analyst's Pick: Pittsburgh has a slight edge being at home, but their bullpen ranks No. 23 in the league in terms of giving up HRs. With AccuScore data heavily suggesting the UNDER, the lean is on the Cards and the UNDER. St. Louis is 7-2 straight up (SU) in their last nine against Pittsburgh.

    Another trend that points towards going with AccuScore's St. Louis pick is the fact that Pittsburgh struggles after wins this season. They're 1-5 SU in their last six games after a win.

    Cards get the slight upset win on the road with the total staying UNDER 8

    How to Use AccuScore's Baseball Picks

    New to AccuScore or haven't been here in a while? We got you. Here's how AccuScore works:

    First of all, since we're talking about baseball picks, click on "Baseball" at the top of the any AccuScore.com as demonstrated with the giant red arrow below:

    AccuScore Baseball Betting System

    Boom! Now you're on the baseball picks page. If you're not logged in as a member, you'll see one free game listed and all the other games will be shaded out. So, it's best to log in here and get full access to all the games. Click "Login" at the top right of the page, as demonstrated by the green arrow in the image below.

    AccuScore Baseball Betting System

    And so, now that you're in member mode, there are two primary ways to read AccuScore's picks. The graph view is the default view with the shaded in circle, but you can also enter the grid mode by clicking on the purple arrow in the image above.

    Graph Mode vs Grid Mode

    The default Graph Mode shows two circles. The Outside circle shows AccuScore's simulations results, i.e. Moneyline Picks. Meanwhile, the inside circle displays the current Las Vegas odds converted into a percentage. The visual of the odds and AccuScore's percentages side-by-side allows you to see the Side Value as the dark blue shaded portion of the inner circle. Hovering over the dark region, you can see the amount of Side Value the computer calculates, as displayed in the image below:

    AccuScore Baseball Betting System

    Above the circles, one finds star-ratings for the moneyline pick and for the Side Value pick. These stars rate from 1 to 4, with a 4-star pick meaning that a significant number of historic trends increases the computer's confidence in that particular pick.

    Below the circles in the shaded bottom third of the box, there is an Over/Under pick. In the example above, the computer's pick is listed as "Under" with the total runs line set at 8.5 runs. Next to "8.5" AccuScore shares its confidence in the pick by detailing that 59.4% of AccuScore's simulations went Under 8.5 runs.

    Next to the Totals pick, AccuScore also lists a Run Line pick. In the example above, AccuScore's pick is the New York Mets with a +1.0 runs handicap. In this case, only 44.9% of simulations ended with the Mets winning outright, while 25.1% of simulations ended with the Mets losing by exactly one run and the Nationals winning by 2 or more runs 38.0% of the time. As such, the pick is Mets +1, as this is the most likely outcome.

    Grid Mode: Ode to the Old Times

    Go back a couple images and the purple arrow shows you how to enter Grid Mode. Once there, You'll see something like this:

    AccuScore Baseball Betting System

    The grid system is built on showing value and picks via numbers instead of images. So, here's the breakdown, reading left to right on the image above:

    "Date" and "Team" should be pretty self-explanatory.

    Then, we get into "Acc Sim%" - This is AccuScore's simulation results. In the example above, Kansas City won 36.4% of simulations, while Seattle won 63.6% of AccuScore's simulations.

    The "Odds%" column is Las Vegas moneyline odds converted to a percentage. Seeing the percentages side-by-side shows you where the value is. In the Seattle vs Kansas City game, AccuScore's 63.6% for Seattle to win is greater than Vegas's 56.4% to win, so there is value in picking Seattle on the moneyline in this example.

    "PS" is short for Point Spread, which means the handicap pick. The picks are listed in order: "Seattle -1.0, CHW +1.0, etc."

    "OU" on top of "ACC OU" is the Over/Under, or Totals, pick. The top row displays the current Total Runs line in Las Vegas. Below it, AccuScore lists the computer's calculated line. If it's higher than the Las Vegas line, the pick is Over. If it's lower than the Vegas line, the pick is Under. Simple.

    The Grid view also allows you to sort picks by star ratings for Moneyline, Side Value or Totals.

In this case, only 44.9% of simulations ended with the Mets winning outright, while 25.1% of simulations ended with the Mets losing by exactly one run and the Nationals winning by 2 or more runs 38.0% of the time. As such, the pick is Mets +1, as this is the most likely outcome.

    Grid Mode: Ode to the Old Times

    Go back a couple images and the purple arrow shows you how to enter Grid Mode. Once there, You'll see something like this:

    The grid system is built on showing value and picks via numbers instead of images. So, here's the breakdown, reading left to right on the image above:

    "Date" and "Team" should be pretty self-explanatory.

    Then, we get into "Acc Sim%" - This is AccuScore's simulation results. In the example above, Kansas City won 36.4% of simulations, while Seattle won 63.6% of AccuScore's simulations.

    The "Odds%" column is Las Vegas moneyline odds converted to a percentage. Seeing the percentages side-by-side shows you where the value is. In the Seattle vs Kansas City game, AccuScore's 63.6% for Seattle to win is greater than Vegas's 56.4% to win, so there is value in picking Seattle on the moneyline in this example.

    "PS" is short for Point Spread, which means the handicap pick. The picks are listed in order: "Seattle -1.0, CHW +1.0, etc."

    "OU" on top of "ACC OU" is the Over/Under, or Totals, pick. The top row displays the current Total Runs line in Las Vegas. Below it, AccuScore lists the computer's calculated line. If it's higher than the Las Vegas line, the pick is Over. If it's lower than the Vegas line, the pick is Under. Simple.

    The Grid view also allows you to sort picks by star ratings for Moneyline, Side Value or Totals.

    Preview (53-64) Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers (56-60)

    Projected Pitchers: Justin Verlander (8-7) – 3.97 ERA vs A.J. Griffin (5-3) – 5.40 ERA
    Moneyline Odds: Tigers -113, Rangers +103
    Total: 10.5

    New to AccuScore? Try AccuScore for FREE today!

    We've got an AL showdown Monday night between the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers, both on the outside looking in at the playoff picture. The Rangers have won two-of-three previous games this season against the Tigers, but head into Monday's matchup as slight home underdogs.

    Verlander enters the matchup after giving up just one hit and zero runs in eight innings against the San Diego Padres. The Rangers' bats, though, come into this game with plenty of momentum, winning three of their last four and taking the season series over the Houston Astros.

    Vegas Odds vs AccuScore Simulation Data

    Vegas has the home Rangers as slight home 'dogs, but AccuScore data actually has Texas winning the majority of games.

    With the Rangers winning about 55 percent of sims, AccuScore would have listed them at a -120 or -125 on the money line -- making the +103 very attractive.

    Betting Trends
    - The Tigers are 2-7 straight up (SU) in their last nine games overall, and on grass.
    - The Rangers are 7-1 in Griffin's last eight Tuesday starts.
    - The Rangers are 21-7 in Griffin's last 28 starts on grass.
    -The Rangers are 10-3 in Griffin's last 13 starts.

    Analyst Pick on the Total

    Most books in Vegas have the total set at 10 or 10.5, but AccuScore sims actually have that number down at 9 -- indicating a pick on the UNDER.

    About 53 percent of sims stay below the total. The UNDER is 7-3-1 in the Tigers' last 11 Tuesday games.
