Whenever someone asks another person about what sport to bet on and who to bet on that sport, the average American will probably say baseball or basketball. As to who to bet on, the answer will probably be a bit vaguer than the first one.
Most of the time people bet on a team because it is their home team-a New Yorker betting on the Yankees-or simply because they grew up watching the team and idolize it, like when someone loves the Red Sox because he or she remembers dad taking them to the ballgame on weekends.
However, if you are one to seriously bet on sports, you want to get a better reason to invest your hard earned money. If you are looking to bet on sports that are easier to understand and follow, you might want to try baseball. However, if you /bet on sports/ like the Major League Baseball, chances are you need to understand the pitching lineups of each team so you can get the best picks. This may be a bit confusing at first, but it is infinitely better than understanding more complicated numbers in other sports.
To bet on sports like baseball, it is important to look at the setup of each team whenever they are facing a lefty or righty pitcher. The reason behind this is that some managers will not allow their lefty players to play if they know that the right-handed people can manage the game. The Boston Red Sox have premium offensive ball players. They have both Trot Nixon and Johnny Damon holding their own in the outfield and both of them are left-handed when batting.
Because of their dexterity, they score more home runs when facing right-handed pitchers than lefties, so good managers will put lefty pitchers when they know that Nixon or Damon will be up to bat. It is really important that you understand the dynamics of the team’s setup. If they are set up wrong, even if they have the strongest players, they will still not be a good pick.
Some baseball teams really stand out when it comes to maximizing their players’ and team’s setup, some just falter in this department. The Rockies had a good run, 14-9 lefties last season at home but only got a poor 6-17 when they were away on the road. This season they are doing 7-2 in home base against left handed pitchers, but only a measly 2-2 when on the road.
The Orioles did a sorrowful 7-18 while on the road a few years back when pitted against left handed pitchers and this season they are doing worse at 1-10. It is really essential to go into the statistics of the entire team, other than going through the profile of each member. From there you can find the pieces that you can fit together so that you can choose winner after winner and get very good money from betting, too. Numbers translate to winning picks and more profit.
