    Does betting MLB Runline favorites for dog money really work?

    Lets find out shall we?

    Rules are simple.
    Bet the runline in baseball for the highest dog price.
    1 unit
    -20 units will be the end of the thread proving it wont work. DO NOT FOLLOW THIS...Just collecting data for fun

    Todays play:

    Chicago Whitesox -1.5(+140)

    Yeah it probably wont, I was bored at work on lunch so I just felt like coming up with goofy shit. On the plus side there is no juice. and If an average price is +130 or +140 then you only have to hit 35-40% of the plays?

    Like many systems it will likely work for a given period. Probably the key is to refine it adding some type of condition to the bet, if one exists such as starting pitcher era etc..etc.. They may already be built into the money line.

    The main thing is to try an eliminate chalk from every play but don't go crazy look for ev to +120.

    Whether it be RL or heavy ML 2 team parlay.

    From my experience a Fav RL either hits or the said team loses straight up more times than not.

    FYI, the Marlins RL is +175. These are tricky since lines move. My advice would be to grade it out using closing lines so you have something that's repeatable if that's important to you.

    I've been doing this for a couple years off and on now...

    Straight Betting +RL's
    Straight Betting +ML's
    Parlaying - ML's
    Parlaying +RL's

    Parlaying - RL's

    I stopped betting dogs in both forms especially negative RL's
    because they're not a positive strategy whatsoever.
    Sure it feels good when you hit a +200 dog but its hit or miss, mostly miss.

    I never bet more than I can win on any play EVER.

    IMO the plays I posted above are a blueprint for
    SUCCESS IF YOU STICK TO IT, which is the hard part.

    The best strategy are the -ML's 2 unit risk 2 team parlays as it's quite obvious.

    But I still bet the +RL's parlays with 1 unit risk a lil more than occasionally.

    To be honest I look at the numbers 1st then look at the teams of said numbers
    I like then go from there.

    Basically whatever you do the book will slowly chip away your bankroll.

    It's all set up to make you feel like you can win, but as the law of large numbers states, you will never beat the juice in the long run.

    Keep trying though, lmk when your house goes up for auction and ill swoop in and pick it up cheap.

    If your wife's hot I might even let her keep living there. Banging her 3 times a week of course.

    The juice is a negative factor against you over time. It's an anchor. There is no negative affect against me over time correct? It's straight up win or lose. I Can win only 45% of my plays and still have a positive gain.

    Yeah I'm just killing time. I was bored at work so I thought I would come up with this ridiculousness. It could turn out a total disaster. Who knows.

    -20 is the stopping point and it will officially be dead. +200 units and I believe that is enough for it to be proven. IMO
