MLB Odds Analysis: The Ump Angle

Betting Umpires For Profits

Michael Alexander

Although much has been written about what angles to use for profitable MLB Picks betting most of these articles focus on the pitching. It is a fact that pitching is 90% of the MLB Picks game there are also other profitable ways at which to look at an MLB Pick.

One such way, that I believe is somewhat overlooked, is the impact of the umpire on the outcome of an MLB Picks game. Specifically, the homeplate umpire.

Based on how they call any particular game, they can have a profound affect on the MLB picks outcome. Although Major League Baseball is trying to get a uniform strike zone amongst all umpires there still can be variations.


Those variations can have a big impact on the MLB Picks game.

For example, an umpire who has a large strike zone tends to favor pitchers and produces more UNDER Winners while tight strike zones favore the MLB Odds OVER.

So let’s take a look at what umpires produce profitable MLB Picks over and unders:

Top MLB Odds UNDER umpires:


Andy Fletcher 13-3-2

Scott Barry 12-4-1

Brian Gorman 12-4-1

Fieldin Clubreth 11-4-1

Bill Miller 13-5


Top MLB Odds OVER Umpires:


Tim McClelland 12-5-2

Eric Cooper 12-5

Randy Marsh 11-5-1

Jim Reynolds 8-4

Jerry Meals 11-6-1


Although just making an MLB Picks selection based solely on who is behind the plate could be your way to the poor house it certainly should be one of the aspects that needs to be considered when betting the totals in an MLB Picks contest.
