MLB Public Betting Explained
When bettors talk about public betting they are reference 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 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 picking against the public 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”.
