Of all the major sports, baseball is known for not having a great home field advantage. During the regular season, astute bettors will prey upon bookies by betting on teams that are in situations where the home field advantage is extreme.
Baseball picks are different from other sports picks for one big reason: No point spreads are offered. Your baseball picks either win or lose outright. For this reason, many bettors actually prefer wagering on professional baseball picks to all other sports picks.
Parity truly has arrived in Major League Baseball. Amazingly, nine teams in the National League are within striking distance of a playoff spot. In the American League, eight teams have a legitimate shot at reaching the post-season. That's 17 of 30 total teams with meaningful baseball to play over the last two and a half months of the season. However, there are still many people who insist baseball needs a salary cap. They cry that MLB does not provide a level playing field for all teams. But would a salary cap really improve Major League Baseball?
I grew up living, breathing and loving MLB. Before I knew about girls, or at least before I knew I would like them, there was MLB. Before I hated High School, there was MLB. Before the other sports came into my view, there was MLB. The scandal of steroids is the latest in a bath of player strikes, inflated salaries and inflated ticket prices that would test anyone's love and loyalty.
