Home Ruin Derby for Cubs and White Sox

LAS VEGAS – Chicago baseball fans can feel a sliver of solace knowing that the Bay Area has been more offensive to the Home Diamond than the Cubs and White Sox.

Those who blindly bet the San Francisco Giants, until the All-Star break, lost 4.56 units, according to ats.io/mlb. But pathetic athletics dropped 18.84 units of MLB’s worst at the RingCentral Coliseum.

This combined home portfolio exceeded a total of 21.25 units lost between Cubs (17-29 at home, -10.95 units) and Sox (19-25, -10.30). At 17.81 units, the citizens also stained their playground.

That Chicago has two of these four culprits is shameful.

If he’s a local player, Rex Byers, head of betting at PlayUp USA in Vegas, wouldn’t visit Wrigley Field or Guaranteed Rate Field without getting a “decent sweat” — a big side or total bet — on the outcome.

“I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t go for entertainment purposes,” he says.

The Ohio native thrived as he faded or bet on both teams.

He’s accusing the Cubs players, who last weekend let a lazy pop-up fall between first base and right field, of “border resignation.” Had they not won it all in 2016, he would have bet a deal that they would never claim the crown in his lifetime.

“Enjoy this, I guess I say,” Byers, 45, says.

The Sox had a 46-46 record and minus 14 running teams. FanGraphs predicted the Twins (50-44, plus 28 difference) to win the MLS Central.

“[The White Sox] “You’re not going to be able to beat this boss,” Byers says of Tony La Russa. “And constantly plays with a bony head or scratching [will relegate them to] The once meaningful baseball game outside begins in October.”

No MLB team made more profit in the first half, of 15 units, than the Orioles. The Yankees (8.1 units) were delivered in the Bronx, as well as the Rockies (6.8 units) in Denver.

We’re trying to make sense of the first half to lock in the value of the second half.


Don Wallace, a loyal Houston reader, reminded me of some of the coins I handed out in my 2019 book, Sports Betting Winners.

He’s been tracing how Dennis Renevolt of Chicago, known as Van Smith in the book, has been working for decades. Dozens of great books record Rhinevault’s constant quest to win in sports betting.

On Friday night, July 15, Wallace was aiming to bet hard on the Astros and start bowler Justin Verlander on July 16, telling me, “I don’t care about the price!”

This action, la Rhinevault, involves betting a team of the top ten, according to ESPN’s power ratings, against a team of six retirees after losing to the bottom owner. On July 15, the Astros lost to the humble athletics team.

Houston, favorite – $360 (risked $360 to win $100) that Saturday, won 5-0.

Wallace also repeated what legendary TV host Brent Mossberger told me about the book.

“I’m a spotty bettor,” Mossberger said. “Win three in a row, I’ll bet on you the next day. You take your winnings the further you go when you do, but lines are the way to go in baseball.”

That Friday, Wallace was eager to continue supporting Seattle as well. After winning three times, he had just defeated Texas for his ninth straight win. As a -143 nominee, the Mariners won on July 16 and again, with -131 nominees, on July 17.

The Yankees, Blue Jays, Red Sox, Orioles, Astros, Mariners, Braves, Marlins and Dodgers — the elite in success — combined a combined 117-42 (73.6%) after three straight wins, which includes streak stops to be defeated.

Remember, remove the profit as you go.


Doug “Sheriff” Fitz, a retired Cleveland native who delved into obstruction of systems upon his retirement in Vegas, struggled trying to gain baseball’s charisma.

John Morges, a native of Chicago and a professional bookmaker in Florida, was up a few hundred dollars and barely qualified to pay.

“The berries were tough,” he says, imitating Chico Escuela’s character, comedian Garrett Morris from the popular 1970s sitcom “Saturday Night Live” that he often echoed, “The baseball was a berry, and the berries were good to me.”

But Brooklyn-born Vegas-born Noah Parker, a four-figure bookmaker, reports that he’s had success with certain road teams, especially in the extra rounds.

Additional innings begin with a runner per second. After nine rounds, he often bets on the visiting team. In the final week of the first half, road teams were 9-4 in additional innings.

Parker says, “I adapted and modified it.”

key numbers

Angels were 24-13 years old on May 15, then spiraled upward, going 15-40. During that coma when Shohei Otani wasn’t playing, his team was 9-37.

And 23 of those defeats were by at least two runs, and discount tickets were cashed out on the lucrative -1½ running streak.

The enemies were in their 14-8 yards, in a running line, against the Angels. For comparison, the Astros were -220 at home against the Angels on July 3, but Houston’s running streak was -110. Houston won 4-2.

When Ohtani doesn’t start, those poor angels are gone.

Endings of ‘N’ Possibilities

In total bets, the Mets and Astros games are 57-37 less than, and a profit margin of over 11 units. Circle the Washington Mets on August 1 and 3 and the Astros in a three-game series in Oakland starting on Monday.

Finally, Baltimore, of course, racked up this impressive win with several underdog wins.

Long Island maker Tom Barton has amassed a lot of those profits, and says Baltimore isn’t going away: “They have a stacked farm system, so Orioles are going to be good for a while.”
