This Tuesday night AL East matchup lines up with a historically profitable system that has registered an 8% return on investment since 2005.
That’s eight 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 $15,000 — good for roughly $925 per year.
That’s over a lengthy sample size of exactly 1,900 games. Substantial data sets like this one, of course, ensure statistical significance.
This line fades the public heavily, according to Action Network’s proprietary tracking data. And that’s exactly what this betting trend factors in — teams 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 regard to gains over a long time horizon.
