AP Laserphotos ths favorites With the start of the pennant races just a matter of- awaiting the first ball to be thrown out, no dQubt followed shortly thereafter by the first overzealous manager, a study and recap of last year's major league baseball activity from wagering standpoint should be a must for the serious diamond speculator. : There were approximately 2100 games contested last season. Each had a favorite and an underdog with the exception of about 100 games that Vere on the board at pick 'em, a condition where the bettor picks either team and gives odds of 5 to 5 to the dealer accomodating such speculations. 1 Last year's results showed the home teams winning 57.1 of the games, the visiting teams 42.9. Favorites had a winning record of 58.2, underdogs 41.8. By far the best bet in baseball was on the home team underdogs, which showed a 48.5 winning average with 316 victories against 335 losses. A wager on every home team underdog last season would have resulted in a handsome overall profit in getting odds of as high as 9 to 5 on those games. - It should be borne in mind that despite the fact that favorites did win 57.1 of last year's games, betting the favorite in every game would have resulted in a substantial loss, what with giving odds of from 6 to 5 to as high as 12 to 5 on favored teams.

CINCINNATI CINCINNATI Beechmont Volkswagen Inc Stillpass Brothers Inc 8667 Beechmont Ave. 1200 Reading Road 232-4000 761-1800 INDIANAPOLIS (AP)-Marvis Frazier, the 18-year-old son of former world heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, isn't allowing the national Golden Gloves championship he captured Saturday to rush him into a pro career. "I think I've got a lot to learn before I become a pro," said Frazier after he outpointed a taller, older, heavier and more experienced Phillip Brown for the heavyweight title in the final bout of the 51st National Golden Gloves. "I learn something every time I get into the ring. Sure, I know you can make a lot of money boxing as a heavyweight. But, I know enough about the sport to realize I'd be making a mistake to turn pro now." Frazier started the tournament relatively unknown as a boxer, but well known because of his father. He left as one of the promising stars for the 1980 Olympics. Only one of last year's champions, Richard Sandoval, Pomona, Calif., repeated. Sandoval, 18, overpowered Alexander Pelen, 17, Waianae, Hawaii, and the referee stopped the one-sided fight in the second round. Three deputy sheriffs from Nashville, Tenn., representing the Knoxville team, went home with titles. Jerome Coffee, 21, defeated Dario Medrano, 23, Lansing, Mich., in the 112 pound final with the ref halting action in the first round; Johnny Bumphus, 18, outpointed Efrain Nleves,51, Milwaukee, for the 132 pound title; and Mike McCallum, 22, a 1977 Gloves champion who reached the Olympic quarter-finals in 1976 as a member of the Jamaican team, outpointed Donald Bowers. Bowers, 19, Jackson, Tenn., had earned the 156 pound title last year but decided to drop down to 147 this year. Jackie Beard, a 17-year-old from Jackson, also had his bid for a second consecutive Gloves title end with a loss in the finals. He was outpointed by Kenneth Baysmore, 17, Washington, D.C., at 119 pounds. Other champions crowned Saturday night before a near-capacity crowd of 8,000 at the Indiana Convention Center were Roland Cooley, 18, Philadelphia, 125; Lemuel Steeples, 22, St. Louis; James Shuler, 19, Philadelphia; Antonio Ayala, 16, San Antonio, Texas; and Lee Roy Murphy, 20, Chicago. "I'm proud of my father and his accomplishments, but I don't fight like he did. He was a slugger and I'm a boxer. I've got to be myself. I'm a different person," said Frazier, who was two inches shorter, 18 pounds lighter and six years younger than his 6-foot-3, 210 pound, opponent.
