MLB Handicapping System: Sports betting is constantly changing. What works one month or season may not have an impact next season. Gamblers love the favorite. Oddsmakers set a line and the public immediately percieves the odds as representation of one team favored over another. Often times the odds are set on public perception so you can't fall into this trap. MLB handicapping is about finding value and often times it's with the underdog. The financial upside of betting underdogs on the moneyline is very valuable over the course of a season.
