I am chasing first to score loses for GM 4 DET/NY (game 2 of my chase) and I don't like to play those together.
However, (last 3 years) 5 times a team has scored first the first three games in series. All were away, away and home. Only 1x did they score first the 4th game at home (STL v MIL last year, STL scored 1st all 6 games). But, STL lost that game so the trend would be 10 that the team scored first each game in the first 4 and lost the 4th game of a series, which would be good for your DET first to score and NYY win bets.
For the 2012 season (using the tricky SDQL stuff)  Home team scores first and wins = 32.3% Home team scores first and loses = 12.4% Away team scores first and wins = 20.9% Away team scores first and loses = 34.4%
In short, first to score loses has a 46.8% chance of hitting and a line around +200 would tell me that the odds makers think only a 33.3% chance.
Your bets (first to score DET and NY win) have 12.4% chance of hitting, using season actuals. That is why I stay away from doubling those two up.
2012 Detroit at home:
DET score first and win = 39.3% DET score first and lose = 11.9% Away score first and win = 23.8% Away score first and lose = 25.0%
Summary first to score and lose around 36.9% (closer to a +200 line). But DET score first and lose about 11.9%.
2012 NYY Away: NYY score first and win = 36.9% NYY score first and lose = 20.2% home score first and win = 16.7% home score first and lose = 26.2%
Summary first to score and lose around 46.2% (great % for a +200 line). But DET score first and lose about 26.2%.
Use the numbers anyway you want.
My only play (locked) and last chase still going is first to score loses +215. May add an OU or some other props but will not play a ML or RL.
