Bet totals ‘over’and over again

The beauty of baseball this year? Those bloody bullpens!

I submit that fans betting the ”˜under’ regarding totals does so at their own peril.

Latest example was the KC-LA Angels game last Friday in Anaheim. I recommended betting ”˜over’ 8½. The Royals were up 4-1 in the bottom of the eighth. Final: Angels 9, KC 8 in 10! Bullpens are imploding everywhere.

Fortunately, I was on the right side of that collapse.

I see that there were bets on the outcome of the Michael Jackson trial. This garbage, which wasn’t for entertainment purposes, is what the feds look for in going after the gaming industry here. — Mark Mayer
