When handicapping baseball day-in and day-out, there is a lot to consider, such as team and pitcher power ratings, bullpen strength, hitting stats, defensive numbers, and even injury factors. Of course, it’s often valuable to look at teams’ situational records, and StatFox offers a plethora of these on its Team Report pages. We’re here today to look at performance on a particular day of the week over the last 2-1/2 seasons, that being Sundays.

We’re not just looking at Sunday because that’s what day it is today, although the timing hopefully will prove valuable. More importantly though, Sunday games in baseball present a pair of situations that can prove definitive over the course of the season, those being most often 1) Day Games and 2) The Final Games of a Series.

You may be saying to yourself, who cares how a team does on Sundays? Or “This type of information is just fluke anyway”. However, keep in mind that baseball can be a superstitious game, and a team’s preparation, be it going out late in an unfamiliar city on Saturday night, or perhaps even going to an early brunch, can often lead to less than typical results. Plus, if you’re one who believes heavily in numbers and trends, how can you argue with some of the results below.

Is it a fluke that the New York Yankees have been almost unbeatable at home lately on Sunday, or that Tampa Bay plays way below its normal standard on the Lord’s Day? Who can explain with certainty why Houston produces so well for bettors on this particular day of the week?

In any case, these are the team that have produced the most distinct results on Sundays over the last 2-1/2 seasons, sorted by units won/lost.
