Is Steam a useful tool in handicapping MLB games? If so, which books should you be looking at?

Sunday we had 5 1/2 unit plays and went 2-3 for -.265 units.

Cin +135 won 6-2, Baltimore +141 won 8-5, Cleveland -132 lost 0-4, colorado +155 lost 6-12 and finally the Dodgers under 8 even lost 12-6.

Today so far I have sent out no plays.

I am getting a lot of positive feedback with the new breakdowns for MLB games. Especially the steam moves and actual % numbers on the games. These help you put the game into perspective. Also, the RLM is another feature that should have some interest.

For the steam moves not every book who has steam indicates value. The top 3 are Pinnacle, 5Dimes, and Cris. And even then it depends on the sport along with a number of other factors. I only list the steam when it falls into a category that is significant.

Let me also point out, Steam alone will not get you where you want to be in sports betting. But it is another tool to use.

Keep the questions coming as oftentimes it helps me in producing an end product that is effective and easy to understand.

Good Luck Today
