Tough luck for the Braves sharing the division with Phillie. They are a good team.

I am still trying to work that out.  Like to hear your thoughts. 

Anyone's thoughts.  I have had this thread going since   July.

What percentage does the worst team in MLB beat the best team? At least 25%-30% sound about right? I'd guess that in NBA and NFL that the worst team vs best wins max around 8%? these numbers are pure speculation but think they're somewhat accurate.. In MLB it seems there is NEVER a lock

I hardly watch baseball so I'm probably guilty of talking out of my ass but back when I bet "real sports" I'd always blow NBA winnings w/ in first month and a half on MLB

I wish I understood the odds better.  I am embarrassed to say, I do not understand how the odds makers make their line.  Can anyone explain it clearly ?

Thanks

I say the Rangers hold their lead in the AL West and win @ least 7 8 of their next 16 games.

However, translating this into $ I suppose is another matter.  Unless someone takes the other side.

7-

There are 3 main types of bets, moneylines, run lines and over/unders. Moneylines are bets on the outcome of a game. A hypothetical example would be the Cubs @ the Yankees. Depending on who's pitching you'd see something along the lines of CHC + 200 and NYY -240. Basically, if you bet the Cubs (or any + moneyline) you would take your wager (let's say 100) and multiply it by 2.00 to get your potential profit (200$). When betting a - moneyline, you divide your bet size by the number (2.40) which would net you a profit of 41.66$. A run line is an adjusted line in which 1 team gives the other team 1.5 runs. In this example, you'd see something like Cubs getting 1.5 runs at even money and the Yankees giving 1.5 runs at -140 instead of -240. Personally, I always hated betting the home team -1.5 runs because it's almost impossible for the game to go into extra innings and win by more than 1. Lastly, the over under is a bet involving the total number of runs scored in a game. You can either bet that there will be less runs or more runs than the given number.

Hope this helps,
Nick

Yes, it helps a lot.

So , if the line, like the odds makers LAA/Oakland line at Harrahs today, is

Angels +125
Oakland -140

$100 bet on LAA shows a profit of $125  and Oak shows a profit of 100/140 or $71 ?

(I know its not expressed as 7/4 Angels , but 125/71 is 7/4.)  Anyway, is this right ?
