I'm a guy who does a lot of betting and looks at a lot of statistics and I'm looking at the rangers game today. The line for the rangers - 1.5 is +165 and it's the same line for the angels - 1.5. I'm putting money on both sides - basically meaning that I win money if either side wins by at least 2 runs


I'm looking at the rangers games last 2 years or so, primarily their home games, and about 75-85% of their games are decided by 2+ runs. I did some math and this is definitely a favorable proposition as long as it keeps winning at least about an 80% percent


In this case, you got 2 teams with a lot of big bats and 2 mediocre pitchers in the most favorable hitting park in the league. Holland and Vargas are both terrible and 1 of the 2 will likely get destroyed in the game


Any thoughts on this?

If either team wins by 1 you're basically getting "middled". You're risking 2 units to win 0.65 units on every bet. I wouldn't advise doing this going forward, but just my opinion.
