    Red Sox +103
    Mariners -111

    Yankees -107
    Mets -101

    Those are 4 cent lines numb nuts. Totals are 5 cent.
    Incorrect. Those are 8 cent lines. -111/+103 - that's simple math - there is an 8 cent spread. You don't take the spread and cut it in half to figure out how many "cents" there is. Pinnacle quickly moves to a dimeline (for example they have TB/KC -127/+117 which is a 10 cent line) and it gets wider from there. Other books are more competitive.

    Wash/Ariz Pinnacle has -197/+181. 16 cents. Betonline has -195/+184, so only 11 cents and better odds no matter what team you pick. 5Dimes has -200/+185, so again tighter than Pinnacle (only 15 cents).

    For CHC/Mia Pinny has -177/+163 (14 cents). 5dimes has -178/+168, so only 10 cents. Bottom line, as a whole both those books have better lines for baseball than Pinnacle does. And both are solid when it comes to knowing you'll get paid.

    Pinnacle is a great book and beats them in other sports, but not baseball.

    You may have been betting online for 10-15 years, but you obviously haven't fully looked into what the different sportsbooks offer.

    5 dimes has a great reputation. Their owner is a bit of a jackass but it's a solid book and a great option. They also have tons more betting options/props than Pinny.

    Pinnacle is a great book as I mentioned, but there are better options if you're betting baseball.

    I'd still be up money if I put 20$ on Cleveland 3 games in a row and the Cubs won in 7! Although with my luck this year if I do this Cleveland will end up winning in 7. lol

    Can't believe I've never seen this thread. I've been betting on sports for almost a decade. What book do you guys use? I've been with Pinnacle for years and don't think I would ever switch at this point
