Earlier this week, the UNU Baseball Swarm made 12 predictions for the August 30th MLB games.
The results are in and Tuesday’s Swarm went 7-5 picking winners. The Swarm’s recommended bets produced a slight loss on investment of 9%, a far cry from Friday’s 11-1 record and 74% ROI Against the Spread. But that’s OK, what we’re looking for are results over time, and after Tuesday’s game, the Swarm is holding rock steady, picking winners in 2 out of every 3 games (63-32 overall). Here is the full list of the Swarm’s picks for 8-30 and how they turned out.
Two other items of note. First, the Swarm’s most confident pick won again, as the Tigers overcame an early deficit to beat the White Sox 8-4. Second, if you remember, the Swarm recommended two games Against the Spread where we felt like the Brainpower was low enough to suggest a Moneyline bet instead. Incredibly, both those games were won by the Swarm’s picks by a single run. Now, we’re still learning about Brainpower ( and obviously UNU Baseball is a huge part of that), but there’s something going on here! Here is the GIF of that replay.
The Swarm seemed confident the Rangers would win, but the split between “by a little” and “by a lot” lowered the group’s Brainpower enough that it only made sense to recommend a Moneyline bet, rather than ATS. If you watched this game, you know it was a back and forth affair, with the predicted Rangers jumping out to an early 4-0 lead, but still needing a walkoff 2 run home run to secure the victory.
