The best baseball handicappers have a solid feel for teams’ tendencies.

With Opening Day on Thursday, I went through the database for a refresher on all 30 teams, looking for where they perform at their best and worst. All of the records shown are based on the last three regular seasons and do not include the playoffs. Remember, each team only played 60 games in 2020. 

Before diving deep into the data, here are some bullet points from 2019-21:

Head-to-head angles 

— MLB’s most dramatic head-to-head mismatch over the last three seasons was Dodgers-Pirates. The Dodgers have won all 12 meetings since the start of 2019. The teams will meet in May in Pittsburgh and a few weeks later in Los Angeles.

— Another one-sided series has been Cleveland-Angels. The now-named Guardians have won 11 of 12 in the three-year span. The teams will meet at the end of April in Los Angeles and in September in Cleveland.

Negative angles

— The worst ROI situation in baseball from 2019-21 was the Orioles playing as a home favorite. The O’s are 7-18 in that spot for -17.1 units and an ROI of -68.4%.

— The Red Sox are 11-31 (26.2%) as home underdogs over the last three seasons, losing 17.7 units.

— In a small sample size, the Dodgers have struggled as road underdogs, going just 5-12 (29.4%) for -6.25 units.

— In the division/league/interleague categories, the worst return on investment has come from backing the Brewers against AL opponents. The Brewers are 27-33 in interleague play for -17 units and an ROI of -28.3%.

— The Padres have been bad in bounce-back spots, going 87-114 (43.3%) after a loss. That spot has produced the biggest unit loss of any situation on this report (-46.83 units for an ROI of -23.3%).

Positive angles

— The best ROI return over the last three seasons was the Pirates playing as road favorites (7-2, + 4 units, ROI of -44.4%).

— Another plus situation has been the Giants as road favorites. The Giants are 34-14 in that spot, winning 70.8% of those games and producing 15.3 units of profit.

— The Rays have excelled as road underdogs, going 42-32 (56.8%) for + 21.7 units and an ROI of 29.3%.

— The Astros have won 69.4% of series openers, going 86-38 for + 32.6 units of profit.

— In the division/league/interleague categories, the best return on investment has come from backing the Rays against NL opponents. The Rays are 41-19 in interleague play for + 19.2 units and an ROI of 32%.

— In terms of sheer volume, the tendency that has produced the most units of profit has been the Giants in night games (142-102 record for + 52.8 units and an ROI of 21.6%).
