For those who plan on creating a betting line explained in my book Betting on Major League Baseball: The Underdog Method, here are the dollar values for runs in each league.
For the year 2016, we will use average runs per game from 2015.
The following are the averages for 2015.
National League 4.11 runs per game
American League 4.38 runs per game
Dividing a dollar by runs per game gives us the following:
National League 24.3 cents per run or 0.243 dollars per run
American League 22.8 cents per run or 0.228 dollars per run
Good luck in 2016!
