If you are considering on expanding your horizons and get in some baseball action, there are certain concepts that may be useful for you. The beginning of the MLB season is crucial for several reasons, this is when the teams start to show their true colors and show their money making potential. For example, who would have thought that the Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros and Arizona Diamondbacks would be among the most profitable teams in baseball throughout the first two months? At the same time, there have been some major disappointments at the other end of the spectrum. Next we’ll see some of the least profitable teams for what we have seen of this season.
Miami Marlins own the second-worst record in baseball through 45 games. It should be no surprise that they are at the top of this list. There were serious question marks about Miami’s pitching staff heading in to the year and they have been absolutely terrible with a combined 4.82 ERA. Meanwhile, the Marlins offense hasn’t been much better as they rank 24th in the majors with 190 runs scored. Miami might not have been expected to contend for a playoff spot this season but they also weren’t expected to be as bad as they have been.

New York Mets
It’s not really surprising that the two worst teams to bet on this season come from the National League East what it is surprising is that the Mets are one of them. New York was supposed to contend for a playoff spot this season but they are six games below .500 through 44 games. A potentially elite starting rotation has struggled with injuries and inconsistencies this season. The Mets pitching staff ranks 30th in the majors with a 5.11 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Meanwhile, the offense hasn’t been much better as it ranks in the bottom third in runs scored. There is no way to sugarcoat how bad New York has been so far this season. The fact that they are second to only the Marlins in terms of the worst team for baseball betting on is a testament to how rough of a start they have had in 2017.
San Diego was expected to struggle this season so in a way they have lived up to expectations. The Padres own the worst run differential in the majors by a wide margin with a minus-90 margin so far this season. To put that in perspective, the San Francisco Giants own the second-worst mark at minus-65, which is 25 runs better.
Philadelphia Phillies have shown flashes of their potential this season. However, they still own the worst record in baseball through 44 games. Philadelphia’s offense ranks 26th in the majors in runs scored while its pitching staff ranks 29th in the majors with a brutal 4.91 ERA. The Phillies are committed to a youth movement so they are willing to stick it out now in an effort to lay the foundation for a better future.
