Master pages have no concept of even or odd, only left or right of the spine for facing pages when the master is set up as a multi-page spread.
Are you looing for a way to apply a master page based on whther the page has an even or odd number assigned? Are you set up as facing pages?

It's typically described the other way - Apply Master Pages to Pages
This is much easier (faster) if the document is set up as Facing Pages.
Right Click the Master Page (B) Dialog comes up, you would have to enter 1,3,5,7etc
It was set up as facing pages, but I changed it to single because each page has a bleed.
(not sure if I need to do that or not, but if I don't the bleed ends up on the next page)
I have two different Master Pages. One for the left page where the page number appears on the bottom left
and one for the right page where the page number appears on the right.
Once I changed to single page, it appears that I have to specify which page applies to which Master.
I'd like the flow to continue between Master A and Master B pages
Yes, but I have 300+ pages, do I need to specify every even number and every odd number?
How do you handle spreads when you have a bleed?
Do you really need bleed at the spine? Unless you are doing spiral binding, or you really have art dying into the binding, you generally don't.
In cases where you do, it is easy to "break" a facing-pages spread into a left and right half. Disable page shuffling for the spread, then just pull it apart. See InDesignSecrets » Blog Archive » Breaking Pages Apart to Bleed Off a Spine
There's a script reference down inthe comments from Harbs, too, that will do the entire document if you need it (I believe Daniel said earlier today that he's had trouble with the script once and had to break the spreads manually, but I've never seen another report of a problem.)
Yes, It will be spiral bound.
Thanks for the advice.
I think that laying the pages out a single pages and applying the separate master pages manually will be easier in this case since there is a bleed on each page.
Thanks for your help.
I think the easier method is to increase the page width by the amount of the inside bleed, increase the inside margin, set the inside bleed to 0, and leave it as facing pages.
Alright, I'll try that and see how it goes!
