Tips on betting MLB? I'm more of a NFL & Semi-NBA guy, but what things should I look at in betting baseball? I've? heard most people profit more off of MLB than any other sport.

Stay away from heavy chalk.  Check starting lineups for injuries and resting players.  Be aware of streaking teams, both winning and losing.  Make certain the team you're betting on has it's bullpen and closer in order and available.  It's a long, long, season so be prepared to grind it out without taking huge shots on single games or series.

Baseball is 9 innings, your going to kill yourself declaring winners in the 5th inning

One more thing. In baseball there is never a team being pretty good for a win no matter how good it looks. I've been up 11-12 runs late in games and have lost.  Teams can score 4 runs in late inning before you can even blink especially the yankees at home.

For the above responses definitely I understand. Definitely not notching anything up as a win until the game is final. I'm a Met fan I know 

And especially the yanks in that sandbox of a ballpark.
