MLB Reports Placed Bets: Gambling 101 In 2016

So I have let my profits ride on this winter heading into futures betting in 2016 MLB. I thought I would take you into a little look on what I have thrown down so far.
In 2014, I made 3 over/under selections (Washington over 91.5 wins, Kansas City over 81.5 Wins, and the Padres under 79.5 wins). Made a nice profit of a few hundred dollars for that.
For my initial World Series picks I wagered the Rangers, Rays but I was smart enough to take a +2500 preseason SF Giants selection.
Halfway through the season I plunked down some money on the Royals when they were near .500, talking of firing Ned Yost, and running at an +8000 odd to win the World Series.
I also was able to win money on the Orioles for the AL East Division, and at +5000 to win the World Series, I was able to hedge bet both KC and BAL in the 1st round of the postseason, and also the World Series.
2015 saw most of my money come on the heels of player performances. My 3 World Series picks for the preseason odds were the Jays at +2000, Nats and M’s also killed me on the surface. I was able to hedge bet in the ALCS, and I also doubled down when KC was only at -115 odd after taking a 1 – 0 ALCS lead.
The players I won with were Jose Altuve (over 200.5 hits), Chris Davis and Bryce Harper won me money with their HR totals going over. I collected cash on hits (under) for Dustin Pedroia and HRs for Adrian Gonzalez. I went 9 – 4 in those categories.
As soon as Zack Greinke signed with the Diamondbacks, I had my buddy Chuck (MLB Reports Owner here) wager $100 on a 40/1 odd for Arizona. The next week it jumped all the way to +1500.
I have since bet $50 on the Dodgers at their current value of +1500. I also have thrown down $60 on both the Nats and Mets at +1100. I am all about the National League winning the Fall Classic this year.
Last weeks over/under totals had me rushing to bet with Atlantis Casino in Reno, NV.
ALL $50 Wagers:
SF Giants: Over 90 wins (-115)
LA Dodgers: Over 87 wins (-110)
St. Louis Cardinals: Over 87.5 wins (-110)
Pittsburgh Pirates: Over 87 wins (-105)
Washington Nationals: Over 87 wins (-115)
NY Mets: Over 88 wins (-110)
Chicago Cubs: Over 89 Wins (-120)
Insight: I only need 5 of the 7 clubs to go over to turn a nice profit. I project them all to win 90 games.
All Wagers – $50
KC Royals: Over 87 wins (-110)
Houston Astros: Over 85.5 wins (-110)
SD Padres: Under 74 wins (+100)
Cincinnati Reds: Under 71 wins (-120)
Milwaukee Brewers: Under 71.5 wins (-110)
Colorado Rockies: Under 68.5 wins (+100)
Philadelphia Phillies: Under 66.5 wins (+100)
Atlanta Braves: Under 65 wins (+100)
Then there is yesterday’s HR format. Again a call to Mr. Booth for a joint venture bet. Here is what we put money on. We went for some value plays.
To win the Regular Season HR crown in 2016
Giancarlo Stanton $100 on 7/1 odd pays $700 profit
Nolan Arenado $35 on 22/1 odd pays $770 profit
Yoenis Cespedes $20 on 200/1 odd pays $2000 profit.
Manny Machado $10 on 100/1 odd pays $1000 profit.
Kyle Schwarber $7 on 100/1 odd pays $700 profit.
I will be placing some more dough on player performances when they come out later this month.
