The art of placing a good futures bet in Baseball will always require due diligence on anyone’s part. In my next article today, I will reveal all of the bets I placed from Vegas so far this year.
The method to my madness is figuring out when to wager on a team based on their value.
In my set of picks to start the year, I selected TB, TEX and SF. Mind you the 1st 2 look horrid now, but I managed to secure the Giants at a +2500 World Series odd because the LA Dodgers were so heavily favored.
I also pounced on the Tigers having a bad 1st week, and were at +1100 (highest odd on the board this season), before they then jumped out to 27 – 12 for the year.
Detroit has since regressed to a 7 – 18 clip – corresponding with a late plane trip when they left Boston 4 Sundays ago, owners of the MLB best record.
Again gamblers have all the confidence in the “Motown Boys” because they are the 3 time reigning AL Central Champs, have an abundance of premiere talent, and the easiest path of resistance in their own AL Central Division.
I am elated I had the odd at twice the current value.
In the last several days I have hedged a bet with all AL Central teams in forms of a World Series and Division Winner wager. I am divulging all in the next article. Read the rest of this entry
