Online MLB Betting Lamentations & Preparations

There’s no arguing the fact that the 2016 online MLB betting season had one of the most climatic finales that professional baseball has seen in a very long time. When the Cleveland Indians jumped out to a 3-1 lead over the Chicago Cubs, most sportsbooks thought the World Series was all but decided. But in the most dramatic fashion, the underdogs delivered one of the most historic comebacks in the history of the MLB.

In the end it was Cleveland who tasted heartbreak and the only solace Indians’ fans could find was in the fact that they were not alone in their lamentation. This past year, almost every major sports league featured a theatrical comeback that culminated in the losing team being sent home with their tail between their legs.

In the NBA, sportsbook fans will recall the embarrassment the Warriors suffered at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers. After the first 4 games, Golden State had dominated their way to a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. One more win was all the Warriors needed to host the trophy, but this time around it was Cleveland that celebrated the flamboyant failure of their enemy.

More recently, those who bet on MLB and NFL games alike got treated to history as the New England Patriots delivered the largest comeback in the Super Bowl era. Matt Ryan and the Falcons blew a 25-point lead that undoubtedly helped ease the pain of Cleveland fans that were still bitter about the Indians’ upheaval.

So as we begin to enter the better part of 2017, even the most disheartened fans can reminisce about all the history we were able to witness. More so, MLB sportsbook fans can begin to prepare for another successful, auspicious baseball wagering season. The start of the season may still be a couple of months away, but it’s never too early for fans to get a head start on sizing up this year’s futures lines.
