Beating The Book: Joe Peta, ESPN Chalk, on 2017 NL/AL Season Win Totals, Paul Sporer, FanGraphs, 2017 Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Guide
Joe Peta, author of "Trading Bases, a Story About Wall Street, Gambling, and Baseball* (*) Not necessarily in that order” and writer for Chalk at ESPN.com takes a break from his actual job crunching numbers and joins Host Gill Alexander for another in a long line of appearances on the pod, this time with an exclusive preview of his 2017 National League and American League Season win totals best bets. Then, fantasy baseball geeks (and baseball bettors), it's time. No one has podcasted more extensively on starting pitching throughout MLB heading into your 2017 fantasy draft or auction than FanGraphs writer and podcast host, Paul Sporer (RotoWire, MLB Network). He sits down and chats with Host Gill Alexander about some of the most overvalued and undervalued starters in the majors, headed into Opening Day 2017. It's information that directly applies to fantasy, but converts beautifully to betting value, as well. It's baseball nirvana once again, plus a little bookmaking with MGM Resorts International VP of Race & Sports, Jay Rood, all on Wednesday's Beating The Book (March 29, 2017).
