Detroit Tigers (8.5) vs. Houston Astros (-495) Preview & Prediction (08/22/2019)

Today at Minute Maid, ATS Stats provides a preview and prediction on the game between the Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers for Thursday August 22nd, 2019.

The Houston Astros 81-47 SU will look for the series win tonight against the Detroit Tigers 38-86 SU, but wait there’s more. Shouldn’t this be for the sweep? You would think that with Verlander pitching at home against two scrub pitchers that the Vegas line of Houston -550 would be a no brainer. After all it was the biggest line in favor of one team in 15 years, and for some books in was the biggest MLB line in their history. Once the Tigers one in improbably fashion, this one game was considered to be the biggest upset in the history of major league baseball… based on the odds of course. Vegas just made an absolute killing – and look to entice bettors again with another monstrous line.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NBA,NHL & MLB)
C.O.C. = (Chances of Covering) – The ‘C.O.C.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record from a ‘Point Spread’ perspective and not their ‘straight up’ (SU) record, using the teams short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that team in their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.
C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.

VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.

  • BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
  • NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
  • BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.

L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
