but grand slams seems like 2 outs most often.

Here is final data from season 2018.
134 total Grand Slams hit.
1 more than the 2017 season
yes, I know this site: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/hitting/higs5.shtml
shows 132 GS hit for season 2017.
they are not correct.
Even Papa Johns' got it right: https://www.mlb.com/sponsors/papaslam
(there were 2 of us getting 133 for season 2017. I trust our count)

now,
0 outs: 19: 0.141791
1 out: 46: 0.3432836
2 outs: 69: 0.5149253


other data (for last 10 years coming later)
data for season 2018 (and partial list 2017) can be found here:

one reason to start a thread like this was to introduce a sports bet
I had never heard or seen before,
but it seems my husband and Uncle knew about it and bet it before the odds went down this season over last season. (season 2018 still ended +ev even at -110 for YES)

I have only seen this type bet at William Hill mobile.(their min bet is $2 unless you have been told something else)
not even sure if offered in a casino.

in 2017, my data shows for 15 games scheduled on any given day
the average line was
1.35/-1.55 (end of season went up to 1.40/-1.60)
+135 for YES (at least 1 grand slam today)
-155 for NO
the bet had to be made B4 the 1st game started.

in 2018 the average line started out like in 2017 but by mid-season and end was at -110/-110

will be interesting to see what happens next season.

I never saw the bet offered if there were less and 13 games scheduled for the day.
I have not seen the bet offered for a playoff game either.

Sally what is the actual bet? Is this a season long over/under.

Btw sounds like your hubby just passed recently, I am sorry to hear that. If he was into the gs bet then you should do it every year to commemorate him.

ETA never mind I just saw your last post. It was a daily over under.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT PART OF GWAE RADIO SHOW

yes. a daily yes or no actually.
My husband and his brother did real well for 2017.
they made the max bet ($1000 according to my hubbys' bet book) on all days the bet was offered and won over $40,000 just on that bet.
I only found that out after my husband died.

My Dad died a few years ago and my Mom sold his business so I have lots of money from that.
actually kind of ticked me off knowing my husband did all this betting and kept it from me.
well, I am over it now

will see what season 2019 brings

Sally.

My sincere condolences.

A stunning reminder that we never know what another person is going through.

I don't mean this to be an empty offer, but it feels useless at the moment. If there is something you need, you should ask, please. PM or whatever.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I was at a game where a batter struck out twice in one inning. No one has ever struck out thee times in an inning.

A batter can strike out infinite times in an inning, and homer infinite times in an inning (even the same inning) Thatís what makes sports with no timeclocks interesting.

Very true. In the Dodgers Rockies game on Monday the pitcher had four strikeouts in a half inning tying a record. A pitcher has never had 5.

Surprisingly, it happened three times this year in the MLB. It happened 8 times in 2012.

Well I just learned something new about baseball today. Thanks for that. Really cool.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
