Look for value in games with either a low over/under or a high over/under and take advantage of them. I usually always bet under on game totals of 10.5 or more due to the percentages. If the game is lower then I need to look at the pitchers and offence for the two teams to make my decision. Also look at previous games from both teams and see what the final score was in them.
f you can find an over-achieving underdog playing against a struggling favorite then lock in the underdog bet as soon as you can. You wont be able to find these games often, but they do happen, so look for them and bet big on these games. Underdogs are always strong bets, but when their playing a struggling favorite it makes the bet even juicer.

These games can also be good for betting on team totals because generally a bad pitcher against a clicking offense spells lots of runs for one team
