How does it affect the over/unders in baseball?

lots of ways.   biggest threat is losing your starters in a delay when on the under.

pitchers dont like rain, it affects how they grip the ball, more chance of fielders slipping on a greasy surface i would lean towards the over

games go under. thats because lazy fat athletes called baseball players dont like to leave the dugout unless they have to. & when a stubborn umpire makes everyone have to play the game, the hitters swing at everything, put it in play, get the game done ASAP.

If the expected starters don't start then you get your money back right?

In my opinion, in the regular season, rain and cool weather tend toward the under.  The pitchers get a dry ball as much as often as they need.  But the ball doesn't carry as far on humid days, and most importantly the umps will often loosen up the strike zone considerably to keep things moving.  It's basic human nature to do so IMHO.

That said, for a playoff game, I don't think it will affect as much. 

For the record, I'm still leaning over on this game. LOL

dude. what do you think baseball players do when theyre not playing baseball? theyre getting manicures, posing in GQ, banging young hollywood. posting pictures on rich kids of instagram. The last thing they do is play in the rain.
