The Predictem Staff brings you their daily Major League Baseball “Underdog of the day pick” which should be one of the more interesting pages on this site to follow. Many pros claim that the only way to win at baseball betting is to do so by staying away from the favorites (chalk) and betting nothing but underdogs. Now that’s not to say that you can bet all the underdogs out there and turn a profit, but all your plays should be taken from the pool of underdogs that the oddsmakers present us with.
Betting MLB underdogs means that there’s the possibility of hitting less than 50% of our picks and still grinding out a profit. Now that’s not to say that we’re not shooting for the stars here because we are, however it doesn’t need to be said that a handicapper’s winning percentage is going to be much lower than the norm solely betting on underdogs. Nonetheless, it should still end up being a very profitable proposition (most months.)
