ScoresAndOdds Experts Scorching Hot to Begin MLB Season

For over two decades, ScoresAndOdds has continued to set the industry standard for providing up-to-date sports betting lines and odds.

But the platform has evolved into much more than that. The RotoGrinders experts that you know and trust also provide premium betting picks at ScoresAndOdds for every major (and most niche) sports.

And those experts are absolutely crushing to begin the 2023 Major League Baseball season. Heading into the games on May 2nd, the group is collectively already up a whopping 62.8 units. If you’re unfamiliar with sports betting, that’s an utterly ridiculous number for anyone after one month of wagers.

Measuring Sports Betting Success

Let’s backtrack for a second. What is a unit? A unit is a generic term used in the sports betting community to help measure success and profit. It’s typically used in place of an actual dollar amount.

Everyone’s “unit” is different. Perhaps Sports Bettor X uses a benchmark of $1 for every wager he/she places – Sports Bettor X would consider $1 equal to 1 unit. If Sports Bettor Y uses $100 as a typical wager amount, then $100 would be the unit for Sports Bettor Y. So, if Sports Bettor Y tailed every single MLB pick made by ScoresAndOdds experts this season, Y, in theory, would be profiting $6,280 to date ($100 times 62.8 units).

Why do you see losing records occasionally?

Well, you can’t win ‘em all. That’s for sure. Many of our experts like finding wagers at plus money, and the higher the odds, the less likely a sportsbook believes that outcome will occur. Home run player props are a perfect example to use here, as all of them are at plus money (unless you are the Padres and Giants playing in Mexico City).

Let’s say an expert picks three home runs props today, risking one unit each, all at +400 odds. The day is over, and only one home run pick was successful. It may seem like a bad day, but a “losing” 1-2 home run record is misleading. Profit is the only thing that matters when the smoke clears. This expert would lose one unit each for the two players that did not hit a home run but would gain FOUR (at +400 odds or 4/1 on your money) units thanks to the lone home run that was hit. Yes, it’s a losing record, but it’s still a 2-unit profit at the end of the day!

Of course, it may be impossible to tail every single pick made by our experts due to the sheer size of the team we have assembled. Not only are your favorite RotoGrinders analysts part of the SAO team, but there are also a handful of longtime handicappers that are on the squad. Collectively, the team of 40 (and counting) experts provide a pleasant variety of daily picks and analysis.

Our experts offer a bit of everything. You name it – spreads, moneylines, totals, player props (including the ever-so-popular home runs), futures – the ScoresAndOdds experts always have something to scratch the itch. You will even find picks catered specifically to fantasy pick’em sites, such as Underdog Fantasy and PrizePicks. You can get started with some bonus cash on both sites using our Underdog Fantasy promo code and PrizePicks promo code.

Most of the picks you’ll find at SAO offer reasoning and theory behind them. It’s a great opportunity to learn how, why, and where our experts are finding an edge on the lines and odds. Follow who you wish and tail whoever you want. ScoresAndOdds has you covered.
