with their weak behind offense it is very likely if they win it will only be by 1 run.

if you dont want to lay the juice for the -160 on the ML make your own -1 type runline.

that way if they win by 1 you get a push and get your money back
if they win by 2 you win

the end result is you get to bet less to win the same amount asif you bet 160 to win 100 on the ML

step 1: bet some amount on the ML
step 2: whatever that amount you bet WINS...bet that on the RL

that way if they win by 1 you get your money back, if they win by 2 you win, if they lose you lose

BUT....you reduced the juice so you dont lose as much money.

down side is if they only win by 1 you dont win, get your money back, but no profit. whereas if you take the ML juice you win if they win by 1, but you risk more

take the ML. home teams lose half an inning if they are ahead and it means a lot in the long run at hitting -1 or -1 1/2
