Someone put a stat on here last year regarding playing runlines for teams at home vs teams on the road.

It was showing it was not as good playing a favorite at home because they dont get that extra at bat or something.

Anyone remember it or have the link to the percentages?

I think the problem of betting home favorites on the runline is that if the game goes into extra innings the home team usually only wins by 1 run and therefore doesn't cover the (-1.5)...

don't forget that the home team usually gets 1 less at bat
