Baseball Injuries, Soft Lines and Biting Dogs!

Baseball has a long regular season, almost twice as many games as pro basketball, and ten times more games than the NFL regular season. Baseball athletes have to play just about every day and sometimes even have to play twice in a day during double-headers. This is why it's essential to keep up on injuries. In football, if a starting quarterback or star running back is injured and expected to miss a game, that injury will be reflected in the betting line.

NFL QBs Tom Manning and Drew Brees might be a 10-point home favorite over a below-average team, but without them they might be only a 3-point favorite. The bulk of baseball lines are based on the starting pitchers. Sides and totals will be adjusted a bit when star players are out of the lineup, but not to the extent that football lines often move. For bettors, sometimes the loss of one or two important positional players can be a large enough void that it offers great value to wager against a team.

Having control is essential for sports bettors. The smart bettor has control over his or her finances and is in control enough not to bet too much on one game. For example, if an undisciplined bettor loses three bets in a row all on afternoon baseball games, he might come back and bet twice as much as he lost on one game in the evening, an all out offensive to try and break even. This is foolish, and you’ll end up in the poorhouse before you ever get near the penthouse.

In baseball, control also refers to a pitcher’s ability to throw strikes. It’s important for sports bettors to understand this kind of control, because it can be a useful handicapping tool for estimating sides and totals.
