Hi blue1947,

Approximately 30% of all baseball games are decided by one run.

"Research shows that about 30 percent of all baseball games are
decided by exactly one run. That's less than one game in three. In
about 40 percent of those one-run decisions, the underdog wins the
game straight-up. The favored team wins by one run in the other 60

Let's talk Winning

"Bettors who favor the runline are sure to have more than the usual
share of thrills, as well as the indigestion, that comes with sports
betting, as 30 percent of all MLB games are decided by a single run,
which might explain why most bettors stick to the moneyline."

I hope this is helpful.
