Btw, I've read this thread through again for the first time.

Apart from the odd dodgy comment, you cannot win on MLB matches from the offset due to their unpredictability.

Trading out however is an option, which in June when I wrote this thread, was a new concept to me and wasn't considered.

I had some big wins Multiple betting on MLB @ Bwin, probably why I started this thread.

So I stick to what I wrote to an extent.

you can win on EVERY sport - it's just a matter of doing your homework better than 98% of the people you are betting against. And it's not just knowing about Ramirez's record on Monday nights in May against left-handed pitchers when batting third, you need to understand the percentages of betting - if you can lay 2.24, it's better than backing at 1.8; why bookies love it when you bet multiples; and why bookies lay the overs so heavily in points/run totals.

Baseball is a tight margin sport - every time you take 1.8 on a team you rate 1.85, there goes 1.5% of your margin - you need to find more winners to stay ahead. And that sort of difference is often the difference between the long-term winners and the guys who think they are, but never keep detailed enough records to know..

Squash - the overs is a 'public' bet. Because the overs is open-ended, people want to see a high-scoring game.


The results for college football and arena football markets are similar to those found in the professional football and professional basketball totals market. In all of these leagues, the overs are overbet. We suggest that there is a clear preference for bettors to bet the over and the extent of the bias depends upon the volume of uninformed bettors to informed bettors and limits placed on bets in these markets.

From some academic paper I found on google which essentially backs up what all the bookies have known for years.

The public love it (and remember 95% of gamblers lose in the long run) so the line moves up and it's usually the pros backing the unders to balance up the book (and winning).

o dwyer - have you considered limiting yourself to only above even money shots? I think this would help you as you are clearly stuck in the idea that some things are certainties, which nothing is (if you dont know that by now maybe you never will). I think it would help you to restrict yourself to odds against for a little while.

Seriously ODwyer. Why do you feel the need to post what your profit and loss is and why are you so interested in what everyone else is making?

Answer the question please.

It is hardly good practice to speak money at the best of times yet you feel the need to post EVERY DAY asking what people have made. Do you have some sort of inferioirty complex or something, do you need to be seen as being successful?

And I am not Kairess btw
