Seen an interesting stat that said that 70-79% of all wins are by 2 or more runs, my questions throughout the season do you think you would be more profitable betting all RL's for all teams you pick to win? Or just betting ML's -150 and under?

I personally never play RL's in MLB or in NHL either like to stick to the -150's or even higher

That's how I like to play it as well if I don't want to lay the full wood. I have only played -1.5 twice this year, did win both but I just don't like losing when I have selected the winning team. It's tough enough handicapping winners without having to worry about winning by 2.

RL is there for suckers. Most people don't realize how many games are won by 1. The lines for RL isn't fair for the bettor.
