Gavin Floyd Has Muscle Tear In Elbow - RealGM Wiretap

Chicago White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd has a tear in his flexor muscle
near his elbow Authentic
Kristaps Porzingis Jersey
 , which has caused an unstable ulnar
collateral ligament.


Floyd could end up having Tommy John surgery to repair the ligament, but that
decision won't be made until he meets with orthopedic specialist Dr. David
Altchek on Monday.


At the very least, Floyd figures to be out for a significant amount of time.

锘? If you dont know already, you could probably have guessed that the
major
betting sports are football and basketball. Lets turn our eyes to a
betting sport that is
often overlooked but can be very valuable: baseball.
Theres nothing better than kicking
back with a cold one, whether at home or
at the stadium, and watching a ball game. Its
relaxing, enjoyable Authentic John
Starks Jersey
 , and it can be (if done right), profitable.
Why
bet on baseball? There are plenty of good reasons. Unlike other sports,
there
is baseball on practically every night during the late spring, all
summer and into the
autumn. Not only does this make for more action, but it
also minimizes the impact of
injuries. A baseball player can be sidelined for
ten games and the team will barely miss a
beat. A long season gives you a
chance to track a teams progress and have a better
snapshot of where they are
at any given time, and whereas one off game in football
accounts for 1 16 of
a season, an off game in baseball is barely a blip on the radar. A
poor
performance in one game can completely alter a football teams psyche Authentic Joakim
Noah Jersey
 , and raise
serious questions about their character,
while for a baseball team, off nights in baseball
are expected and can often
be predicted (the last game of a long road trip, the game after
an emotional
win, etc).
Unlike other sports, there will be baseball games going on in the
early afternoon,
mid afternoon Authentic
Derrick Rose Jersey
 , late afternoon, and into the evening,
depending on which time zone you
live in. It is not uncommon for guys to
phone in a wager from work, and be sitting at their
desks constantly
refreshing an online gamecast or listening to the radio with headphones.
In
short, wagering on baseball can add excitement to almost any day, at almost any
time
of that day.
There are plenty of financial reasons to bet baseball as
well. Simply put, there is
no lower vig in sports. The dime line in baseball
has to be the best deal in all of sports
wagering. Honestly Authentic
Courtney Lee Jersey
 , check it out. At GoSportsbet we offer the
dime line for every
game (you risk $110 instead of $120 to win $100), and for
day games that are shown on
ESPN, we offer a 5 cent line you risk just $105
to win $100. Whereas in other sports,
the houses take is in the 4-5% range,
with baseball, it is roughly 1-2%, which is really
incredible value.
Finally Authentic
Charles Oakley Jersey
 , in what other sport can you, not the
bookies, impose conditions
on the bet? (For instance, which pitchers start.)
Why would sportsbooks make all these
concessions, you ask? Because its the
summer. Theres nothing else going on (unless
you count the WNBA). In order
for the sportsbooks to get any business, its going to have
to be attractive
to bettors.
Now that weve established that baseball is often overlooked and
has the potential
to be very lucrative, lets look at how to approach a wager
on baseball. It must be noted
that baseball is one of the most difficult
sports to handicap accurately on a consistent
basis. Why? Simply because
there is far less disparity between teams. The Phoenix Suns
won more than 75%
of their games last season. The Pittsburgh Steelers lost one game out
of 16
for a 94% win percentage. Last season the St. Louis Cardinals won less than
65%
of their games but were the best team in baseball. Conversely Authentic
Carmelo Anthony Jersey
 , the worst team in baseball
still won
32% of their games, while the worst basketball and football teams won just
16%
and 12% of their games, respectively. Much closer competition means a
much harder job
for handicappers.
There are two schools of thought when it
comes to what one should emphasize
when analyzing baseball: pitching and
hitting. Lets begin by examining pitching.
Pitching is the only part of the
game you can control. Because pitching match-ups are
posted well in advance,
you know who will be on the mound for (hopefully) the majority
of the game.
Having the most potent offence in the world doesnt do you any good when
your
pitching staff is letting the other team clobber hits all over the ballpark
(for
reference, see Yankees, The New York). While a manager might decide to
sit the star
position player on your team at very little notice, you can be
confident that for at least a
few innings Authentic
Brandon Jennings Jersey
 , you know who will be pitching and can
judge accordingly. Also, while a star
hitter might get four or five at-bats
during a game, a pitcher will get to see everyone in a
lineup.
Hitting has
its advantages too, though. Many professional bettors feel that because
so
many linesmakers focus on pitching, any advantage to be had in a pitching
match-up
will have been already found and reflected in the betting line. Why
not look for an edge
in an area that bookies pay less attention to? Dont get
the wrong idea pitching is
extremely importantsome professional bettors say
pitching is responsible for as much
as 80% of the outcome of a baseball game.
But if analyzing pitching lets you know which
games are potential bets,
analyzing hitting might help you decide what to bet on.
Still other
professional handicappers weigh emotional factors most heavily when
deciding
how to analyze a baseball match-up. Ive mentioned a few above: is the team
at
the end of a long road trip? Have they just come off an emotional
.
