MLB Public Betting Explained
When bettors talk about public betting they are referring to who the general public or the “average joes” are betting on for any given baseball game. You may hear the term public betting or consensus picks used but they are the same thing and they both show which side of a game the majority of bettors are tacking. Experienced baseball bettors look at MLB public betting percentages to figure out who novice bettors are taking and may choose to “fade the public”. Fading a pick is simply picking the opposite side so if the public is all over one team “fading the public” means a person would be betting on the opposite side. The strategy around “fading the public” is that most bettors bet with their feelings rather than the data, so looking at BetQL's MLB public betting percentages and betting the opposite side can be somewhat profitable. If a game has a high amount of tickets being placed the higher the likelihood that the public is betting the game, so be sure to check out that data from BetQL before you decide to “fade the public”. If betting with or against the public isn’t part of your baseball betting process check out our sharp page where you can find MLB expert picks.

Fading the Public When Betting on the MLB
Fading the public is the betting strategy that you bet against who ever the consensus pick in that game is, and the thought process is that public bettors are novice bettors and the opposite is where the sharp bettors wager. The strategy of fading the public is one of the most talked about betting strategies but looking into the historical data it may not be all that successful. At BetQL we don't recommend you fade the public as a blanket statement, but on a case by case basis. The MLB public loves to bet on winning teams and they are usually willing to pay to do so at odds that aren't that advantageous. Not only does the public love to bet on winning teams they also love to bet on overs. A novice bettor is conditioned to bet on the best teams, and bet on scoring, unfortunately for the public most games don't pan out that way. The public also doesn't get much help from the media who plays up how great winning teams are and their propensity for scoring. Most sharp bettors are contrarians and they may use the consensus pick in a given game to guide them to the underdog.
How to Use BetQL's MLB Consensus Picks
At BetQL we recommend taking a look at the team, how they have been playing lately, and who is starting on the mound. If a team is on a hot streak, is getting a lot of love from the media, and has one of their top three on the mound then take a look at the MLB public percentage to see which side the casual bettors are flocking to, then fade the public. The fading the consensus pick strategy may be difficult to win on during the MLB regular season because there as so many games a day, but this is a strategy that can be employed in the playoffs. Novice bettors often don't watch the game and are purely betting with their gut. You can use BetQL's MLB consensus picks to identify those spots and profit on them.
