Something with that big of a spread on the line says the Royals are clearly the favorite to dominate the Cards.
Only the difference in the (+ money) and the (- money) is never that much.
The most it will be is around a .20-.30 cent difference.
IE: KC -270 / STL +240
or KC -140 / STL +120
It never gets as high as a full dollar difference.
Yes, with the MLB, it never gets that far apart, though I was just throwing numbers out there.
There are some crazy juices in other sports, though. I've seen Roger Federer at like -6000 in the first round of a grass tournament. Have to put up $600 just to win $1.
The NBA money lines get into the -300s as well.
Take it all in, Aussie. Next week we'll talk about parlays.
PS - Not a big fan of any of the games today. No MLB action for me. Though, the Orioles should win outright at home vs Houston, and probably stay under the 9.5 o/u. The -170 juice on Buehrle is too much for me to bet against Gozelanny tonight...
PSS (or is it PPS?) - the actual KC/StL line tonight is Brian Bannister (+117) @ Braden Looper (-127). No thanks.
