MLB – Baseball Betting Odds Online

MLB Betting News

MLB betting takes as much strategy as it does luck. You have to take several factors into account, such as the performance of the starting pitcher, the strength of a team’s bullpen, a team’s home and away win/loss record, a team’s head-to-head play record, and a team’s offensive output, just to name a few examples. In addition to that, you have to consider betting options, such as money lines, totals, run lines, and futures. The simplest bet is the money line; you just go ahead and pick the team that you think is going to win a game. Choosing the favorite team pays less that betting on the underdog. It’s not as simple as that, though – favorites do lose games, so consider factors like good pitchers on bad teams, underdogs who play well at home, and small favorites over underdogs. Follow the season’s statistics in order to make sound bets.

MLB betting also has an equivalent to half-time betting in basketball and football. That would be the 5-inning line – which is pretty much the same as the money line but only up to the first 5 innings of play (the starting pitcher does play a significant role in determining the odds). On the other hand, betting on MLB totals means wagering on the number of runs scored by both teams – whether they score more or less runs than set by an online sportsbook (or over/under if we put it in gambling terms). There may also be the possibility to bet on a single team’s totals (or conversely combine two or more bets in different games, which is called a parlay). Offensive output, pitching, stadium, and weather should all be taken into account when betting totals. For instance, some stadiums are notable for producing more runs than other stadiums.

The run line in MLB betting is to baseball what the spread is to football. That is, how many runs a team will win a game by. Pitching is a good starting point for game analysis. Take note of alternate run lines because they have been flipped. As a result, the favorite is the underdog and the underdog is the favorite. In certain situations, like when you think the underdog has a good chance of covering the run line, you can increase your payout. Finally, futures are available for the duration the entire season; off-season, regular season, pennant races, and play-offs. MLB betting futures includes who will win the World Series, who will win the pennant, who will win the Cy Young award, and so on and so forth. Performance, injuries, and personnel moves can affect future odds and add drama to the proceedings.

As you can see there are many ways to bet on baseball games – though most are the same as in others sports but with alternative names, accounting for the difference in rules and gameplay –, but BET NOW makes it very simple to navigate this exciting and possibly lucrative world with many different opportunities to place MLB betting wagers.
