MLB Betting News: Umpire Assignments

Much like referees in basketball, baseball umpires can make an impact on the game, which is why bettors should know exactly who is assigned where on each crew daily.

A four-man umpire crew will usually work the same baseball series throughout and simply rotates clockwise from 3B (third base) to HP (home plate). For example, today's first base umpire will work behind home plate tomorrow with today's home plate umpire moving to third base tomorrow. Some umpires call a baseball game much differently than others in terms of balls and strikes, favoring certain starting pitchers more than others and often affecting how many runs are scored and whether a total goes over or under the number set by a sportsbook.

Those with a smaller strike zone also tend to favor hitters, leading to more totals going OVER than UNDER. For this reason, many baseball handicappers who wager on totals track umpire assignments and keep a record of statistics and betting trends associated with them based on when umpires are behind home plate.
