Well yesterday was entertaining. I told mostly everyone in my network to bet Justin Verlander and his Tigers vs the A’s.
I was paid out nicely at -107 for the wager. That was simply to good of an odd to ignore.
What I love about http://www.bet365.com – is that they let you bet live. Once the Tigers took a 3 – 0 lead in the game, Oakland went up to +400 in the 6th Inning.
Simply to cover a $150 profit, I put a $48 Bet to net the same profit for either team winning at that time.
Hedging is something most bettors like to do. Sure, you take some of the profits away, however this is a great way to be conservative.
I have taught a lot of people who to do this aspect.
For the purpose of the game last night, I am never convinced of the Tigers with any lead in that Bullpen, plus the A’s have staged some late game heroics.
So what is my best pick for this series?
I like the way the site advertised the odd for Boston and Detroit. The Red Sox are a clear cut favorite with their rest Started Pitching, and holding home park advantage.
Detroit had to exercise Verlander and Max Scherzer in Game #4 and #5 to the fullest. This will probably be the decisive factor in this Series. This was another reason why it was so crucial to knock Tampa Bay out in 4.
Take Boston to win the ALCS at -135. This is a decent value odd. If you are betting on Detroit, then why not wait a game first. If the Tigers lose Game #1, the odd will be substantially higher afterwards.
Bet on Detroit after Game #2.
As for the Dodgers and Cardinals Series, I think the LA will win the Series, however how can you go wrong at +125 for those ‘Zombie Cardinals?”
There is good value in this team for that. They possess home park advantage in the Series, and have won 6 out of their last 7 playoff Series.
If you want to bet on the Cardinals, here is what I suggest. Bet the team after Game #1. Also, I would put money on the Dodgers taking Game #1 for this.
It is best to wait until the Cardinals have their backs against the wall to start betting them. They typically are outstanding when trailing a series, and even better when facing elimination.
