MLB Dollars per Run for 2019

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 2019, we will use average runs per game from 2018.

The following are the averages for 2018.

National League 4.38 runs per game

American League 4.52 runs per game

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

National League 22.8 cents per run or 0.228 dollars per run

American League 22.1 cents per run or 0.221 dollars per run

Good luck in 2019!
