Baseball Betting - Favorites vs Dogs - Who to bet this season

By: Tony Acosta     Date: Jun 20, 2015


There are many ways to bet baseball from tracking hot streaks, to pitching matchups, to betting favorites. In this article I'd like to turn your attention to betting underdogs. The table below shows this seasons betting performances in the American League. If you blindly bet underdogs thus far you would be cashing in on 9 of the 15 teams. The most profitable being the Texas Rangers at 31-17 as an uderdog and cashing in $1835 on a $100 bet. Favorite Underdog Pick-em Total BAL 19-12 (+395) 12-16 (-100) 3-5 (-225) 34-33 (70) BOS 22-25 (-1165) 6-12 (-460) 2-2 (-10) 30-39 (-1635) CHW 16-12 (-125) 12-24 (-925) 0-2 (-210) 28-38 (-1260) CLE 20-23 (-1350) 10-10 (+230) 1-2 (-110) 31-35 (-1230) DET 24-14 (+500) 9-15 (-390) 1-4 (-320) 34-33 (-210) HOU 18-13 (-80) 20-15 (+905) 2-1 (+95) 40-29 (920) KC 24-14 (+530) 12-11 (+365) 2-1 (+95) 38-26 (990) LAA 23-15 (+295) 11-15 (-220) 1-3 (-215) 35-33 (-140) MIN 4-4 (-95) 30-26 +1280) 3-0 (+300) 37-30 (1485) NYY 20-14 (+95) 14-15 (+130) 3-1 (+195) 37-30 (420) OAK 19-24 (-1425) 7-16 (-725) 3-1 (+195) 29-41 (-1955) SEA 19-23 (-1190) 12-11 (+405) 0-3 (-315) 31-37 (-1100 TB 20-11 (+510) 15-15 (+390) 4-4 (-20) 39-30 (880) TEX 5-4 (+20) 31-27 +1835) 1-0 (+100) 37-31 (1955) TOR 21-9 (+850) 13-22 (-645) 3-1 (+195) 37-32 (400) The point that I am trying to make with this article is that there is money to be made betting MLB underdogs. Remember, winning only 50% of the time with underdogs will make you money. So the next time that a "tout" does nothing but pick favorites beware because more than likely it will be a losing season in the long run.
