Most Profitable Moneyline teams
The Brewers, Rockies and Diamondbacks have all surprised (on the field and for bettors) to start the season. The Astros profitability is even more impressive having been favored in all but 13 games this season.
Least Profitable Moneyline teams
Philadelphia and San Francisco have the two worst records in baseball. The defending champions are struggling and destroying bankrolls on their way to a 43-45 record. Chicago has received the majority of moneyline bets in all but 10 games this season.
Most Profitable OVER teams
The Mets are 6th in home runs hit and 4th in runs allowed, an excellent combination for OVER bettors.
Most Profitable UNDER teams
Cleveland is the most profitable UNDER team in 2017. Only the Dodgers and Diamondbacks have allowed fewer runs this season and the Indians are the division leader with the fewest run scored.
Most Profitable Pitchers
Clayton Kershaw is the first 14-game winner in the league this year. The Dodgers ace has been favored in every game this season from odds of -157 to -355.
