Betting Against the Public

Betting against the public is one of the most profitable strategies to employ during the baseball season. Casual bettors love backing popular teams like the Yankees, Red Sox and Dodgers. When the squares load up on big-name favorites, fading that action has been profitable.

The key to success is wagering on underdogs in heavily bet division games with reverse line movement. Reverse line movement is when the line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. A $100 bettor following this system would have returned a $16,917 profit since 2005.

Contrarian Unders for Winning Teams

Not a fan of betting the moneyline? A wager type you are more familiar with is the over/under. An approach that works on the diamond is betting the under when two winning teams play.

Winning teams score runs and the public likes to bet the over. So, if you have a pair of winning teams on the field the oddsmakers will inflate the total expecting casual bettors to get down on the over. This has helped $100 bettors return a profit of $18,829 in these matchups since 2005.
