Default Betting against the worst team in baseball

I'm not sure if it'll win but I'm interested in it. The Baltimore Orioles are by far the worst team in baseball and every day I am just going to fade them and see what happens. If they're around +200 dogs I'll take the favorite on the RL as long as the favorite isn't at home. I might add in fading the Royals because they're terribly bad as well. Just an idea. Will start it off tonight with Philadelphia -102

I've thought about that angle before, but never tried it. I study the pitchers a lot and make most of my decisions on the pitcher matchups. This one is pretty close. Both have an ERA over 4 and their WHIP is about the same. Pivetta has more strikeouts with less innings pitched than Gausman and their number of walks is about the same even though Gausman has pitched about 20 more innings than Pivetta.

Philly is only -102 on the ML, so not a lot of juice.

I took a shot at Philly +1.5 -210. Yes, a lot of juice, but they are the visitor and will get all 9 bats and I win a one run game.

Pivetta beat the Baltimore back in May 4-1 and the Phillys are in a battle for first place, so they will be motivated for a win.

Taking the big odds against the Bottom team is hard to swallow, because they do win occasionally.
BUT put in a parlay it's not as bad.
I have been betting against the bottom 2 teams in a 2 Team Parlay.
Flat Bet of 1 Unit.
I started on June 1st. Not sure when i'll stop.
Here is how its gone:

JUNE 1st to Today TOTALS:

+14.01 Units
WINS 21/18 LOSSES

Nice info Mike, thanks. This is just an idea because I was curious how itíd work out. Phillies currently up 5-1 so doesnít look too bad to start but itís only one game.

Rounders, you taking the Rangers against Baltimore today to continue your trend?

It is tempting, but Baltimore will win a game sooner or later. Texas just got swept by Boston, but had a rest day yesterday. I would like to think they have a win in them soon.

I might go with the Rangers even though they are not good this year, but their record is better than Baltimore's.

Cole Hamels is going for Texas. His best years are behind him now, but his stats are a little better than Cobb's who is pitching for Baltimore.

Tough call for me. But if you fade a bad team you have to do it everyday and not try to pick and choose.

I was thinking a lot about it Real Money. You're right about doing it every day but it is kinda hard knowing Hamels is not pitching well at all. Rangers are also a very bad team and on a losing streak, may just lay off of it today. Learned a lot from facts over the past couple years and the main thing is to never bet against a winning streak or on a losing one. What do you think about it though? It's a tough call.

Rounders,

I passed on the Rangers. It turned out to be another loss for Baltimore after all. It just scared me putting $$ on the Rangers, a bad team. I don't like to bet scared money.

GL with the trend, may it continue.
