To preface, I really don't like baseball. I played til I was 17 yrs old. I liked it then, don't like it now. So, for sports, this time of the year is torture for me.
But because I get horribly bored, I experiment with betting on baseball (very small bets, like 5 bucks, fyi). Every year it's the same fucking results.
Example: I play a 9.5 over, the score is 3. I play a 7 under, the score is 15.
How the fuck do you handicap this? In my opinion, you can't. In football or basketball, I can dissect a game, see where I went wrong, etc. But baseball?? It's a joke to even try.
In my opinion, it's like betting a NFL total of 44 and final is 14. Gentleman, that doesn't happen (often).
I know some of you guys look at the baseball season as a whole and are in it for the long haul. But I don't gamble like that. I want to be able to pick my spots, make my play on one big game. You can't do that during the regular season in baseball (I can't, anyway).
I'm glad work has picked up and I have more things to do nowadays, rather than waste my time and money betting on baseball. Good fucking god.

Just curious. I'm just started giving it a whirl. I think there's money to made here. After years and years of douchbags playing Hold'em, eventually people are going to start to drift to new games. Here in Las Vegas it's happening already, younger and younger people are starting to play the old man's game cause they're getting tired of Hold'em. Mixed games are getting more and more popular.
