MLB Dollars per Run for 2018

Hello baseball fans,

Opening day is just around the corner!

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 2018, we will use average runs per game from 2017.

The following are the averages for 2017.

National League 4.59 runs per game
American League 4.71 runs per game

Dividing a dollar by runs per game gives us the following:

National League 21.8 cents per run or 0.218 dollars per run
American League 21.2 cents per run or 0.212 dollars per run

Good luck in 2018!

Ken Osterman
