I like the trend but may I ask a general question here. Do any of you guys think league looks at these and gives Umps directive to tighten strike zone maybe and consequently causing reversal?

League observation

I really don’t think the leagues look into these trends as we wouldn’t see these lopsided margins if they did.

Well this is lopsided for sure, but with a small sampling. The league would have to be remiss if not negligent if an ump is showing a demonstrably lopsided tendency

don't you think vegas knows those ump trends...
if you think they don't you shouldn't be gambling.




have you ever felt like the world is a tuxedo and you're a pair of brown shoes?

Public clueless

The sharps and the odds makers indeed follow this closely - yet the public rarely has a clue when following these strong trends.

I appreciate the posting.I just think trends have underlying reasons. With the O/U trends maybe the Ump is just getting assigned to games with high scoring teams If the underlying reason for a trend occuring is unknown, then I feel like it would be a factor that is largely random.In other words, trends are good if bettor knows cause before vegas does. Its interesting

Umpires have different strike zones & some pitchers and/or hitters may benefit from one umpire or another. Home plate Umps definitely can have an influence on the total of a game.
