We split our mlb picks on Monday with KC winning in extra innings…and LAA never in the lead.
Today there are 7 home dogs and only two so far are eliminated from consideration. I will update as the plays become clear today.
The market 30 min before the open is gapping up over .5%. We are well positioned to take advantage of a few day bounce with 9 active swing trades…5 of which were put on yesterday. Of note Bernanke speaks around noon today…..could be a market moving event.
“for those of us that like a little more volume, is there anything we can imply when you DON’T take a home dog that fits what appears to be every other criteria?
the marlins tonight for example. home dog, public on the road team and even a ‘name’ pitcher on the road team.
so if that’s not a play, can we take the opposite side, knowing that something must be amiss with the marlins that is preventing a play on them?”
Yes you can imply its not a play:) I agree the marlins looked like a perfect setup last night. But one of the variables I look at that I never go against was heavily on Milwaukee …so was a clear cut pass for me.
As far as taking the opposite side…betting on road favorites where the public is heavy on the road favorite so far over the years is a losing proposition. Its more then likely the worst bet in baseball!
