*Odds are according to FanDuel as of Wednesday morning.

This Wednesday night contest between the Reds and Cubs really won’t generate that many eyeballs outside of a certain demographic.

But because this game fits a historically profitable algorithm that has returned 17% on investment since 2005, it might be worthwhile to tune in for a little bit.

Plus, games with little to no magnitude allow you to extract value out of the marketplace – and retail bettors.

This algorithm applies to games in which wind speeds are above 5 miles per hour at Wrigley Field, among other parameters.

The winds are slated to be about 6 mph at first pitch.

Wrigley Field, in particular, has shown a strong historical and statistical correlation between how fast the wind is moving and how often the over or under hits, depending on which direction the breeze is headed.

If you had bet $100 on each game that has fit this betting system since 2005, you’d be up over $7,000. That’s roughly $425 per year and a record of 251-164-21 (60% win rate) over a very lengthy sample size.

For reference, the annual average return of the S&P 500 – roughly the value of the American stock market – has been about 8% for over a century. That index is down about 18% year-to-date.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin, for instance, is down more than 60% during that same timeframe.

Still, don’t use this betting algorithm as an alternative to investing. The aforementioned figures are purely for reference.
