You can follow me on Twitter, Teddy This week’s betting 101. What is a Baseball run line a baseball run lines really simple. Alright to win a baseball game with a normal wager All you got to do is win to win a baseball run line bet you they have to win by two runs if you’re taking the favorite or Lose by only one run or win if you’re taking the underdog now most beginning betters when they’re betting the run line they say why should I late $2.00 – two dollars with this team to only win a Dollar when on the run line gonna be much closer to even money with a bet like that Of course, especially when the favorite wins by one run Not that often less than 20% of the time the favorite wins by one run But all that is priced into the equation with a run line. If you think you’re getting a bargain that the markets don’t notice because You’re laying a dollar 20 and other people are laying two dollars to win the game. There’s a reason for that it’s priced and effectively right and also point out that most of the time if it is the favorite and they are at home a Lot of times you’re getting one less at-bat. That’s a huge difference and when you talk about run lines and most of the professional betters that I know when they play run lines a Lot of times, they’re taking a run and a half, which I personally don’t like to do at all I want my full return on underdogs when they have the game that I expect them to have. What’s the time you’re laying the price? taking the plus one and exactly Which is why I don’t I want to do it it’s also worth noting the correlation between totals and run lines Games with lower totals you’re gonna get a better payback when you’re asking the team to win by a run and a half Then you will with a higher total simply because more runs are expected to be scored.
