Pete Rose admits to betting on Reds 'every night'

On ESPN Radio today, Pete Rose admitted betting on baseball "every night".

"I bet on my team every night. I didn't bet on my team four nights a week. I was wrong," Rose said.

Rose said that he believed in his team so much that he bet on them to win every night.

"I bet on my team to win every night because I love my team, I believe in my team," Rose said. "I did everything in my power every night to win that game."

Pete can join the NCAA Tournament Pool, but there's not much payout for him.

Every night? Even during the offseason? That's a recipe for failure.

If he DID bet on them every game, he MIGHT have turned a SLIGHT profit ...

Betting on your team to win doesn't seem nearly as problematic as betting on them to lose

Do they have to cover spreads in baseball betting?

"And the Reds pull off a suicide squeeze down by four runs!"

Baseball betting is almost always a money line.

Usually it's something like

Favorite -160
Underdog +180

You bet $160 on the favorite to win $100. You bet $100 on the underdog to win $180.

Where exactly do the rules against betting on your team say it's ok to bet on your team to win. Pete Rose deserves to be on permanently ineligible list. Then he should go and ask the HoF to rescind their rule against entry to those on the PI list -- as it had been pre 1990.
