The first couple of years when sports bookies were putting up over/under totals on baseball games, it was a very experimental process. Most games were set at 8 or 9 for total scores by both teams. Well years ago, a man flew to Chicago, and figured out that the wind almost everyday plays a very big role in the games at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. An elderly lady living in a very tall apartment, just across the street made a deal that would change both of their lives. 15 minutes before each game, the gambler would call the lady at her home and ask here which direction the flags were pointing do to the wind blowing on or off of the lake. If the wind was blowing out to the outfield, he would bet the game to be high scoring because of the increased chances of there being more home runs. If the flags were blowing in, he would bet the game to be low scoring because the ball was not going to be hit far on those days. He would then pay the ladys rent each month. This man made a killing over the first few years. Now since the age of technology, the sports books now get this information before they post up the odds. When the wind is blowing out, you can see these over/under totals be posed up to 13 runs, or as low as 7, depending on the wind direction.
