I have been making baseball picks using my posted numbers off and on through the season to date and the results are kind of interesting. I have made picks in 3 situations.
1. Play the over/under when all the numbers agree on one side and the line is a minimum of -110. The results so far have been 27-17 for a +9.25 units.
2. Looking for value in picking favorites to win. To do this I sort the games each day by the line and then look to see if any of them look to present more value that other games with a similar line. This hasn’t worked at all with a record of 12-16 with a loss of 7.3 units. This seems kind of strange since it is always picking favorites.
3. Compared to #2 this one is interesting. Playing underdogs when all the predictions pick the underdog. This has gone 20-15 for +10.34 units.
So for now playing over/under or the underdog to win any time all of the numbers are in agreement has been a good strategy. I probably would have expected the reverse results for #2 and #3.
