Where are you getting these lines? 5dimes currently has Oakland +215 and Kansas City +155. These bets will win because they beat market price, it says absolutely nothing about -1.5 being better than the money line. I'll take the Angels -175 and the Royals +180 each for the max, please

Oak went off at +220 on the alt. The pick is a good punt even at +200 whether it won or lost. Even if As win game by 1 run that's still much cheaper bet than losing a heavy chalk play. Also the Angels went off at -185 run line and -185 alt line. You can box these if you play lines against each other and bet against a 1 run game happening (20% or so).

*To me a good box is when there are high team totals and O/U lines. But a lot of work with small limits though.

An algo that can pick dog winners is my preferred way to play (Steel's does/did).

And, if you get +200 dogs, they only need to hit 1/3rd the time. If/when I don't like the +200 dog then sidelines (or runline) is my play. ***Most people don't play the alts since they don't like losing 60%-70% of the time; I don't mind since they makes $$$ (and that's the point of this game).

Home teams alts > +200 normally hit more than 1/3rd. And all +200 alts have done decent this year. Night games also have a very small home edge beyond the usual. Thus BallPark effect vs pitcher effect; and mediocre/poor pitchers have larger home/away splits. Those are things you need to look at when picking alt lines.
