We are well into the third month of the MLB season and teams have already played more than a third of their season schedules. A lot of things are becoming clearer each week. While the season still has a long way to go, there are some defining day-night performance trends that have formed for teams in 2021, and certainly bettors would be wise to make note of these trends. In most of these cases, backing or fading these 10 teams in the proper spots has been the difference between winning and losing.
Until these trends change, I would recommend riding them as they are, as you will see that the difference in the statistics behind these trends warrants consideration. There is definitely some foundation behind these numbers as well, as the differences in playing in day games or night games can include weather, vision, pregame preparation and postgame routine as well. It’s hard to argue with the results.
Here are 10 MLB teams whose results have varied greatly in day and night games this season. Note that these numbers are taken directly from this week’s MLB Team Reports, and they can be tracked daily on the matchup pages on VSiN.com.
