MLB's best and worst Memorial Day bets

The Memorial Day schedule features 16 MLB games – 10 of those getting underway in the afternoon. We take a look back over the past 10 years and see which major league clubs are the best and worst bets on the holiday Monday:

Most profitable – Cincinnati Reds (6-2 for +5.61 units on Memorial Day since 2003)

The Reds have made the most green for MLB bettors on Memorial Day and just so happen to be hosting the Indians - on off the worst teams on the holiday - this Monday.

Most costly – Houston Astros (1-6 for -6.16 units on Memorial Day since 2003)

Honestly, if you’ve been betting the Astros on the holiday each year, you need to cut back on that suitcase of Memorial Day beers. Houston hosts Colorado this year.

Best record – Toronto Blue Jays/Miami Marlins (6-3 on Memorial Day since 2003)

Funny enough, one of best teams on Memorial Day lives north of the border, where they don’t celebrate the final Monday in May. The other happens to be one of the worst teams in baseball this season. The Marlins visit Tampa Bay in a Sunshine State showdown Monday.

Worst record – Kansas City Royals/Cleveland Indians/Houston Astros (1-6 on Memorial Day since 2003)


Not a big surprise here, with the Royals, Tribe and Astros being among baseball’s bottom feeders for some time now. However, there could be value in going against K.C. and Cleveland since they turned the corner.

Best home record – Toronto Blue Jays (6-0 at home on Memorial Day since 2003)

With Memorial Day just another Monday north of the border, perhaps the Jays don’t feel the pressure to excel in front of their home fans. Toronto hosts Atlanta Monday.

Worst home record – Kansas City Royals (0-4 at home on Memorial Day since 2003)

The Royals have ruined more than a few Memorial Day memories for their loyal backers and host the Cardinals on the holiday Monday this year.

Best road record – Chicago White Sox (4-2 on the road on Memorial Day since 2003)

The ChiSox have a 5-2 overall record for +4.21 units on Memorial Day, many of those units coming courtesy of beefy road lines. The Southsiders host the Northsiders – the Chicago Cubs – Monday.

Worst road record – Cleveland Indians (0-4 on the road on Memorial Day since 2003)

The Tribe are hoping to turn around their road luck on the holiday this year. Cleveland, which has cooled off a bit, is visiting Cincinnati Monday.

Best over – Chicago White Sox (7-0 over/under on Memorial Day since 2003)

The White Sox not only kick butt on the road on Memorial Day but keep the crowds happy with some high-scoring games. They host the Cubs, who are 3-5 over/under on the holiday.

Best under – Seattle Mariners (2-5 over/under on Memorial Day since 2003)

The Mariners have kept scores low on Memorial Day and bring the 26th ranked offense in Monday’s game with San Diego, which is 3-4 over/under on the holiday Monday since 2003.

... now it is the next morn , 9 am ish eastern standard time .. everyone knows dodgers trump angels on this earth .. lad break the 7 - 7 tie in the 7th with the big # 8 and go on to win 8 - 7 in the city of lost angels .. there is always symbolism going on if someone has tapped into the other side or ... ____________ words in the english language could never describe or touch what this life really means .. angels lost to make my rec 6 - 3 in the contest creating a 66.67 % for the MAY 27TH day .. fernandez gives up 6 runs in the 2nd inn sealing the marlins fate .. am i looking for signs or symbols ? no i am just passing it along .. there was an article on here titled angels and demons talking about the LA/LA disappointment thus far .. i didnt make it up .. but there is always a war going on on planet earth no matter what way you try and cut and dice it or reason life out for yourself and as a whole .. that is if you are tapped into the POWER <<< :) THANKS

my freestyle went 4 - 1 with the tribe killing my perfect storm of 5 - 0 .. i usually dont come back if i am right and talk about it .. but had to tally the trends like i said i would .. i went against cincy because their 5 game w streak was snapped on sun .. so i liked it to read w w w w w l l instead they jumped right back in the win column .. unlike my bravos .. play something in the way you make me feel by stephanie mills .. extended version then pretend you get to talk to me every day while you are counting your new $ just because you know me and are housing us in NEV :**) (**) !_Luv getting old cuzzin <>will it ever happen ? im not worried about it either way .. but , plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ?

i see this story was moved 27 down in your article list and it is 10ish at night right now .. looks like the W off the L strat will finish either 7 - 2 or 8 - 1 with halos at lad (or angels vs demons ) the 6 - 6 score in the 6th inn was priceless too ..IT IS NOW 7 - 7 IN THE 7TH IN LA/LA .. DONNIE ? YOU THERE ? HAHA going by the info in the article it looks like was good with the reds and fading the tribe , good with jays , good with cards and fading kc .. wrong on the over and unders in sea and chicw .. wrong in fading the astros , wrong in going with mia .. wrong on going with chicw

votto just went deep in the bottom of the 8th inn in a game tied 2 - 2 with 1 out .. again , bad leadership .. no way you pitch to him .. dont give him nothing to hit .. he is afterall one the the best that ever did it right .. coaches , managers .. they kill me .. i dont care what the #s are .. can they not see things like that coming .. was a man on 1st so they didnt want to put the go ahead run on 2nd base .. yeah .. well that move just cost them the game .. the clev +1.5 backers def know they should have not have given votto anything to hit ..(didnt say walk him intentionally just dont give him anything good to hit) if they let the managers bet ? you would see a lot more suicide squeezes and bunting the runners over .. you would also see the starters staying in the game longer .. way over their pitch limit .. that squeeze dusty called for the reds the other day was straight outta the ole neighborhood sweeet .. the year the wsox broke through with the ozzie small ball bunt em over bunt em in approach ? straight mob . uh ohh here comes chapman to make me look disconnectd once again .. haha j/k 1 out 2 outs 3 outs you are goneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ! ;)

very nice work .. i will be back tonight to add up the #s of how this plays out .. i will give my predictions freestyle though before i jet .. indians win , jays win , astros win , cubs over the wsox , like a cards win but have iffy thoughts about it for some reason in kc .. no take on sea .. looks like 4 dogs and 1 fav .. if i tweak it to 3 -2 ? i wont .. lol what kind of space am i in ? man there are no words to describe how quickly things can change in an instant .. haha i will give you this >>> take team off a win vs team off an L = take nats , dbacks in game 1 , halos , mets .. in the al parks take cards, rays , rsox , jays and mariners .. probable result for these 9 is always 5 - 4 .. tilt to the team coming off the W .. yes this is interleauge .. btu is fun to gauge nonetheless ... gl
