After much research, i am running the following system daily during MLB's regular 162 game season.
All favorites are -1 1/2 (in other words need to win by 2 runs). All my bets are either $100 to win ??? OR ??? to win $100.
04/04 Boston beat NYY 9-7..+165.00
I will try and post daily.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
A large percentage of baseball games are decided by one run. The run line was a marketing idea cooked up by Vegas sports books to introduce a pointspread to baseball.
Baseball is traditionally a money line bet, + 1.25, - 1.45, etc...
the beauty of it is all you have to do that way is pick the winner, no points, no run line, and in baseball the underdog wins quite often.
The sports books hate baseball. When I worked in in Vegas a guy on our crew was dating a girl that worked as an auditor for the Fremont sports book. Over the course of one season the Fremont won $50 on baseball.
The run line is just a way of gettig players to turn winners into losers.
You're much better off betting tewo and three team money line parlays. Catch a dog or two and the payoffs are nice.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
