My baseball handicapping methodology favors systems as opposed to trends. I still refer to trends but in MLB you must play the percentages and put a significant stock in finding a betting advantage on plus money picks. My clients will never have to worry about me backing a favorite team as like most serious sports investors, I don't have a favorite team and only look for value in picks based on the money line, run line or total.
My approach to sports betting is simple: if I don't see value, I don't waste my time or money on the matchup. I thoroughly research all of my picks released to my member base and if there is any reason to avoid a certain matchup, then it won't make my card. All picks are my best bets each day on the bases.
