THIS SIMPLE MLB INTERLEAGUE STRATEGY COULD BE THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN BASEBALL BETTING
Say what you want about MLB interleague play, it could be the best kept baseball betting secret around.
The annual matchups between American and National League teams have produced an incredible return on investment if you simply took the Junior Circuit (AL) to beat the Senior Circuit (NL) each and every time out over the past 13 years.
The American League won the interleague battle every season during that time frame, boasting a collective 1,897-1,571 record versus the National League between 2004 and 2016. Blindly betting $100 on the AL team in these games would have made you $16,935 richer during that span.
This trend continues in 2017, with American League clubs holding a 34-21 edge over National League competition heading into Sunday’s schedule – good for $1,093 (if you bet $100 on all 55 interleague games so far).
The bulk of those long-term profits have come when the American League representative plays host to the National League. American League teams are 1,054-706 at home in interleague action the past 14 seasons, including an impressive 19-7 home record this year ($1,071).
Despite moneyline odds padded toward the home side in those matchups, AL clubs have stacked $12,283 in baseball betting profits in those contests since 2004. They’ve outscored their visiting NL foes by an average final score of 4.91-4.11 in those games, including a 4.46-3.26 average so far in 2017.
