# How to make your own baseball moneyline

I'm always hearing how "sharp" bettors compare their lines to Vegas's lines. If they have the Red Sox at -140,but Vegas has them at - 160, there's value there. But how do you come up with your own lines?  For example....I assume that it starts out at with Team A at -100Team B at +100Before the juice is added of course. Then does team A get bumped to -120 because they are at home? Then team B gets and extra +15 points taking them to +115 cause they have been on a 3 game loosing streak? Add in pitching, rankings, batting, ect. If someone could point me in the right direction I'd be forever in your debt. Thanks!
