With so many games on tap, we hold the advantage as we're able to pick and choose our spots, utilizing short underdogs to turn a profit. The beauty of wagering on underdogs is that you can hit less than 50% of your MLB picks and still turn a profit, due to the moneyline paying out more than your risked amount. Please bookmark this page and check back daily for our current predictions. We highly recommend betting each pick, regardless of your personal opinion of the game. We will grind out a profit at season's end! You can bet on it! Lastly, check out our left menu which has tons of articles offering tips, strategy and betting advice!

In this article, Loot shows us how to use patterns to help us, while helping us steer clear of an over-simplified way of dealing with patterns. Click here to read!

In this article, Loot examines the scenario of betting on a baseball game simply because one of the pitchers is stinking it up and why it doesn't work as often as you would tend to think.
