    Losing Streak (05/25/14)

    The Red Sox are in the midst of a ten game losing streak. What were the odds that Boston would drop ten in a row?



    The Boston Red Sox have lost ten straight for the first time since 2001. The defending World Series champions were favorites in seven of those games. What were the odds that the Red Sox would lose ten games in a row?

    According to our simulations, the Red Sox only had a 0.064 percent chance or approximately 1,563 to 1 odds of losing their last ten games.

    How has the losing streak impacted the Red Sox' season?

    Statistics Before Streak After Streak
    Division Standings 0.5 game out of 1st 8 games out of 1st
    World Series Odds 12/1 25/1
    Proj. Record 85-77 76-86
    Proj. Finish 1st AL East Last AL East

    The Red Sox' ten game losing streak is the second-longest by a reigning World Series champion in the last twenty years. The longest streak belongs to the Marlins in 1998 when the team lost eleven games in a row twice in the same season.

    The team still has a long way to go to break the franchise record of twenty straight losses, which was set in 1906 when the Red Sox were called the Boston Americans.

    Will the streak extend to eleven losses? Using the Predictalator, Boston will be an underdog in Monday's game against Atlanta.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
