    He had 11 K's 2 starts ago and was cruising in his last start before getting ejected in the 7th after throwing at a guy

    Actually he hasn't gained a unit since June.

    Gil Meche is +6.05 Units in his past five starts.

    Brian Bannister -1.05 Units
    Luke Hochevar -2.1 Units
    John Bale -3 Units
    Brett Tomko -3.5 Units
    But Greinke is on fire now.

That assumes you bet on every single game and picked the home team every single time. If you picked your matchups wisely, I wouldn't be surprised to see that number to be at 70% easy.
    Say you win 70 percent... the problem is, if you're laying -200 every time, you're only breaking even at 66.7 percent.

    No matter who they are playing bet on the Royals if Greinke is pitching. Look at the matchup if Meche is going and decide. Bet against them the rest of the time.

    I think this new one (+1.5 Run Line betting) is good... and proven. I believe it'll also work in hockey.

    59.24 percent sounds good, but we'd have to take the juice into account. Actually I can break down how well betting on each home team has fared this year:

    Tampa Bay +20.4
    Minnesota +18
    Chicago Cubs +14.8
    Chicago Sox +13.8
    Boston +13.6
    Florida +9
    Pittsburgh +7.3
    Baltimore +6.4
    Texas +4.6
    Colorado +3.8
    NY Mets +3.3
    LA Angels +1.9
    St. Louis +1.1
    Milwaukee +0.9
    Atlanta +0.3
    Aizona -0.1
    Houston -1
    Cincinnati -1.4
    Toronto -1.6
    Detroit -1.9
    Philadelphia -3.5
    Oakland -4.1
    NY Yankees -5.9
    LA Dodgers -6.7
    Kansas City -7.4
    Cleveland -8.3
    Washington -12.4
    San Diego -14.8
    San Francisco -14.9
    Seattle -19

    Taking away the teams you mentioned may make it seem profitable, but who's to say those teams keep losing at home? Moreover, what if a squad like Toronto or Baltimore bottoms out and loses 12 Units at home the rest of the year?

    I have what sounds like a really obvious idea for you.

    Bet on home teams if the home team in question is not: Seattle, Washington, San Diego, San Francisco.

    Home teams this year are 919-708 so far, or 56.4% win rate. Excluding those four teams above, home teams are a cumulative 833-573, or 59.24% win rate. Maybe not great numbers, but hey. Your systems aren't doing that great, by your own admission. =P
