When supporting your club becomes your avocation

In the year the Patriots almost completed the perfect season every line player read the story of the fervent New England fan who put $100 on the Pats on opening day and let it ride for nine straight weeks, keep in mind the Pats were pretty much smokin’ fools for the first 10 games outright and obviously covering the straight up bet for the entire regular season. The guy walked with just over 50 large but could have had just over 500k if he was just playing money line. So that got us to thinking about what about the baseball fanatic that loves his club so much that the just plays a C-Note per game +/- the juice and where would he be. Knowing that the good clubs are often laying pretty heavy juice you know that the Yanks and Sox would be a losing proposition but the team on top might surprise you. Here’s what $100 per game would net you on every team in the league as of last Sunday’s games.

1. Angels (.612) $2,128
2. Rangers (.573) $1,657
3. Dodgers (.588) $934
4. Phillies (.574) $860
5. Rockies (.551) $856
6. Giants (.542) $644
7. Marlins (.534) $625
8. Mariners (.517) $426
9. White Sox (.513) $411
10. Yankees (.622) $405
11. Cardinals (.567) $166
12. Astros (.483) $483
13. Rays (.538) -$194
14. Tigers (.530) -$314
