Baseball bettors get a breather for the next four days , but it’s a good idea to look back at some of the best bets from the unofficial first half of the season and make adjustments moving forward.
Best Money Team
Pittsburgh Pirates (56-36, +24.98 units)
The Pirates have been by far the most profitable bet in the bigs to this point and are riding a three-game winning streak into the break.
Best Money Pitcher
The Diamondbacks’ Patrick Corbin has been a pleasant surprise for bettors in the first half. Arizona is 17-2 in the rookie’s 19 starts and any $100 bettor would be $1,445 if they had wagered on each of those outings.
