I know live plo has button straddles a lot and it is kind of broken (+ev) and makes the game worse.
I'm in vegas and at the venetian they have 2/5 and 5/10 deep games with the standard utg straddle but also a button straddle which I've never seen in nlhe before.
You think button straddles are +ev in nlhe?

Its busted 3-4 handed (and Kills game too imo), prob 5 handed. Dno about everything in between.

The button straddle in particular is pretty annoying and bad for just about every format of a live poker game but also necessary for you do yourself. The last thing you want to be known as is the guy who doesn't straddle.
In general, I don't think they are +ev but as PU said, in certain lineups they definitely can be
