MLB Hangover Betting Theory: Does It Really Work?

The Hangover Theory. It’s a betting spot that’s been around as long as players have been spraying alcoholic beverages in celebration in Major League Baseball. 

The theory says this: Play against teams the game after they clinch their division because, you know, they’ll be too hung over to swing a bat. 

Well, as far as records go, there’s a little something to this. Since 1999, teams are 41-47 in that spot. In the past five seasons — since the adjusted playoff format — teams are a measly 12-18.
