This Monday night matchup lines up with a historically-profitable system that has registered an 7% return on investment since 2005.

That’s seven cents in return for every dollar wagered over the past decade, on average.

If you had bet $100 on each game that has fit the betting system over that timeframe, you’d be up about $18,850. That’s roughly $1,150 per year.

This algorithm has encompassed more than 2,500 MLB games since 2005 and has gone 1381-1145-118 (55%) over that timeframe. Substantial data sets like this one, of course, ensure statistical significance.

For reference, bettors must win about 52.4% of the time over the long run in order to make a profit on wagers at or around -110.

This line fades the public heavily, according to the Action Network’s proprietary tracking data. And that’s exactly what this betting trend factors in — totals that have been undervalued in the market by retail bettors.

We don’t recommend using this betting algorithm as an alternative to investing — variance is a much sturdier constraint in sports gambling compared to the financial markets — but similar principles apply in regards to gains over a long time horizon.
