Please check out this New York Times article by the authors (Carlton Chin & Jay Granat) of one of the books we have reviewed. We like these analyses because they often give different angles on playoff match-ups. And as a result, they sometimes give reasons for “live dogs” to surprise the public favorites. This is another example:
- The article leans towards SF slightly.
- Texas is a visiting favorite in game one — and is an overall series favorite.
- The talk is all about Cliff Lee and his historic playoff performances.
- The public is on visiting Texas to the tune of 72% of the bets.
