    Are all books switching to "action" for mlb for the season? Don't see listed anywhere on three different books.

    With a 60 game season, +20 units is a good season.

    Selection

    Dodgers -1.5 -145 (this is so square)

    Keep in mind, with the shortened season, managing is so important. One loss is like three losses in a regular schedule. The Giants are real bad and who is Kapler, not proven as yet.

    Fade the big move (ftbm)

    Two seasons ago, I created a rules based system thru Bet Labs that has yielded positive units with a 23% ROI, with a record of 42-42 (since built). The rules based system yielded the following results:

    All Time: 201-247 +37.16 units 10% ROI

    The parameters are the following:
    the opening moneyline is between -135 and -125;
    the closing moneyline is between -171 and -150

    Big line movement throughout the day where the favorite gets pounded is a great play to fade. The numbers prove that out. For the 2020 MLB season, all FADE THE BIG MOVE selections will be three (3) unit plays.

    This rules based play should make for interesting fodder.

    This play is a close to gametime decision.

    Good luck this year.

    Just for info Soto was scratched from the game. That did affect the line. Huge bat gone.


    Hope to see you pick up where you finished last year bud.

    No action on the rainout would be sweet. Interesting that the rules changes have presented themselves on the first game.

    What book did you use for this play? A lot of books still have the 5 inning rule if the game is called or postponed.

    Most do.

    So far only one requires 8.5 or 9 innings

    I use three books Bookmaker, Heritage and 5dimes. Last nights wager Nationals play was placed on Heritage. Heritage uses the 8.5 rule on suspended games, thus a losing result. A Bookmaker play would of yielded a cancelled wager. We take the loss as a man.

    We only have about another 150 wagers to go.

    **correction**

    Heritage uses 5.5 inning rule on suspended games. The result is a loss.

    Brewers -101 (2 units)(L)
    Padres -121 (1 unit) (W)

    We go 2-2 -0.32 units. Our contrarian double dog play (CDDP) split with the +170 Marlins dominating the Phillies. The flyer on the Tigers might of puzzled the group. With the Reds touted so highly as a vast improving team, the line seemed a little fishy to me.

    Fractional losing night for night, but we take it nonetheless.

    With 5dimes and so many other books not allowing listed pitchers, does this change your strategy, plays and timing for model?
