MLB Database (2003-2008 Seasons)

We collected betting data for each and every major U.S. sport since the 2003. We collect the opening and closing lines (and”line motion,” for various sportsbooks) and final scores — and perhaps above all, our proprietary”betting percentages.”
Our database for MLB includes nearly 14,000 games over the past six seasons. For the purposes of this article, spring training, we comprise the playoffs, but exclude. Comparable to baseball, baseball is a”moneyline” sport, so we emphasize”units won” (rather than winning percent ).
MLB - Betting Against the Public Similar to last year, we now provide results for”Betting Against the Public” at various thresholds of gambling percentage AND for home teams and visiting groups.
Table 1: MLB and Betting Against the Public (2003-2008 Seasons)
Bet% House Visitor Total
50 +103 -54 +49 units
40 +91 -30 +61
30 +64 +13 +77
25 +67 -46 +21
20 +20 -4 +16
15 +28 -5 +23
Using the Table
* In addition to general”Bet Against” results, we have broken out how Betting Against the Public works if a team is either a Home group or even a Visitor.
* For example, if a Home team has less than 30% of the public gambling on them (Visitor has over 70 percent of the public), this situation led to +64 units!
* On the other hand, visitors with significantly less than 30% of those bets (more than 70 percent of bets on Home group ), led to +13 units.
It’s important to note that the Betting Percentage data used in our articles comes out of our propriety betting percentage data from seven sportsbooks that are online. We provide the most complete picture of the sports. Using betting percentage information from two or just 1 sportsbooks or a fantasy bet sites will certain produce results that are different.
