How To Bet On The Oakland Athletics
The Athletics suffered though a down season after making the postseason between 2012-2014. As they rebuild and solidify their ballpark and ownership status, you can expect the Athletics to be favourites more often, as they rise back into prominence in the American League.
When betting on the A’s, most reputable sportsbooks will give you moneyline as odds. For example, if the Athletics are listed as -300 and the Mariners have a moneyline of +425, it means you’ll win $100 for betting $300 on the Athletics. As the underdog, you’ll win $425 for betting $100 on the Mariners. Whenever you see a negative number beside a team, it means they’re favoured to win, and vice versa.
The fact that Major League Baseball has a lengthy season has given wagering experts a chance to discover statistical trends that show odds which favour bettors in certain scenarios. These betting systems, such as the comeback kids betting system, tell players to place a wager on games that meet the requirements throughout the season, leading to a profit over the course of a 162 games.
In the case of the comeback kids system, you’ll need to pay attention to find teams that have come from behind to win despite giving up five walks or more in a game. The odds that sportsbooks give tend to be more valuable than the winning percentage of teams in this situation, giving you a bit of a leg up. Of course, you should always check lineups to make sure that a key player isn’t out, which would negate any betting system.
