|According to legend,some wiseguys years ago waited until almost gametime to bet the over-under at Wrigley Field,and went on to crush the house.

Then,the house waited until 10AM of the day of the game to post a line to cut down on the weatherman's errors,regardless of whether it's a day or a night game.
The problem for bettors is that you can play the runline in these games until such time as the 5 Dimes overnight lines have expired.
If they can post an over-under night game line 9 hours before the start,why can't they do it for a day game?
Even with the late start,waiting is no guarantee:Today 6.5 versus 18 in the game.
