This crossed my head the other day, I hear the stat that roughly 30% of games are 1 run games.  And thats the stat that keeps people away from runlines.  But, isn't part of that 30% the team you're betting against?   So both runline and moneyline would lose in that case and doesnt affect whether you bet RL or ML.  So really only 15-18% of those games affect you playing the runline (because moneyline would lose anyway on the other 12-15%).

So if what I said above makes sense, is it fair to say that you'll only lose 18% (overestimating) more games betting the runline vs the moneyline?  And not the 30% number that you hear everywhere?

RL's are the ONLY way to play MLB.

Boy do I disagree If you make a habit of betting runlines you will lose just like if you lay big juice or even straight betting all dogs in baseball is a loser.

I don't lay heavy juice, I play RL's. And I don't play DOGS all year, just occasionally. Last year Favs won 55% of the time, that mean Dogs won 45% of the time. You almost have a 50/50 chance  when you play Favs or Dogs anyway.
