There's some good money to be won when betting on MLB team season wins.
Each year before the Major League Baseball season starts, bookmakers set a number of wins for each team. You are then able to bet whether a team will go over or under that number for total wins by the team during the regular season.
We have two conflicting thoughts on placing such a wager:
1. These bets are very easy to beat because the number of wins the bookie sets on bad teams is usually too low. The number of wins set on the good teams is usually too high. In summary, there's great value in betting ON bad teams and betting AGAINST good teams.2. Now that we've mentioned the good, we'll mention the thing we don't like about this type of wager. You have to tie your money up for the whole season in order to play them! So, whether you decide to play this type of bet depends on how patient you are and if your bankroll can sustain having part of itself tied up for the better part of 6-7 months while your investment matures. Yes, we did call this an investment as in our estimation these are some of the easiest bets to beat consistently in all of gambling.
All wagering should be viewed as a marathon, not a sprint, so the money tied up issue really shouldn't be an issue, assuming that you're betting at a rock solid sportsbook or have a good relationship with your local bookie. Furthermore, if you were to tell a professional investor that you were going to tie up $1000 and get a 50-75% return on your money within 8 months, they would consider you a guru. It's all about putting it in perspective.
A baseball team must play at least 160 games for wagers on its season wins to have action.
