MLB’s Best Favorite & Underdog O/U Bets


Yesterday we did some digging and found a spot where bettors might be able to cash in when we discovered a handful of teams that have become very profitable OVER or UNDER bets on either the road or at home. With eight teams hitting at over 70% in one of those situations, we thought to take a look at some teams that are standout totals bets in another situation — as a favorite or underdog.

The 18-16-2 OVER/UNDER record of the Diamondbacks certainly isn’t anything special, but digging a little bit deeper into that O/U record shows that the D-backs are 9-3-1 O/U as a favorite, good enough for a 75% profit. Similarly, the Twins are a middling 17-14-2 O/U on the season, but they’ve gone 5-1 O/U (83.8% OVER) the six times they’ve been favorites this season.

Here’s a look at the best favorite and underdog OVER/UNDER bets so far this season:
