Baseball is almost here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test again in 2017. On our most recent podcast, Paul and I took on each other, Vegas, and PECOTA at predicting over/under win total lines. This game is a way for us to preview each team, with the added benefit of being able to lord the title of baseball expert over the other at season's end. To see how the results ended in 2016, click here.
Like we said on the podcast, we want to open that contest up to you as well! Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway. Here's the link to our contest. We explain the scoring system over there. At the end of the year, we'll buy the winner two baseball books of his/her choosing (within reason, people). Personally, I'm excited for this one.
If you have questions, please let us know. You can tweet at us (@afootinthebox), email us (firstname.lastname@example.org), or simply comment on this post. Good luck!
