Best MLB Betting Sites

From its outset, baseball has always been a game that lent itself to numerical analysis. It was the natural sport where sabermetrics would first begin to flourish, because even the casual fan of the sport isn’t averse to pulling out a pen while watching a baseball game and keeping score. While doing so, you get more into the flow of the game, and start trying to think along with the managers as the game progresses, wondering what moves they might make, pondering the way you’d approach the situation in your own fertile baseball mind. [+]

It’s this approach that also makes baseball the ideal game for the sports bettor. The analysis-based formula that the game so naturally lends itself to is the same sort of style those considering wagering on baseball should follow. By paying attention to detail, and learning the ins and outs of every team, patterns and tendencies will soon become evident and that’s when the smart money can capitalize.

The wonderful aspect to Major League Baseball is that there are always games, usually more than a dozen of them every day, so if it’s action you want, it is action you will get. [+]

There are a number of avenues that you can follow when looking for Major League Baseball betting lines. The straight moneyline is the simplest option. Based on what the return would be on a bet of $100, the favorite is indicated via a minus number and the underdog is assigned a plus total. 

Another possibility is the total, also known as the over/under. Sportsbooks set a number for the total runs that will be scored in any given game and you can then either wager that the actual number will either be lower or higher than that bar.

How To Win At MLB Betting

With many games on tap every day and action everywhere you look, one effective method to bet on Major League Baseball is via a parlay, combining three or four games into one wager. Yes, counting on the results of that many games going your way is tougher than a straight single-game bet but on the flip side, the odds and payout for a successful parlay may prove worth the risk.

Another way to win at Major League Baseball betting is by playing the runline.;Generally listed at 1.5, you are wagering that a team won’t just win, but will win by at least two runs. A plus number means that team would be the underdog and a minus total assigned to a team makes them the favorite.

Because you are basically assigning a pointspreaad to the game, this bet will pay off at greater odds, but it’s advisable to remember than on average, some 30 per cent of Major League Baseball games are decided by one run.

Prop bets are also popular ways to wager on Major League Baseball. Maybe you want to bet on how many strikeouts Clayton Kershaw will record, either on the season, or in a specific game, how many home runs Bryce Harper will clout during the campaign, or how many hits Miguel Cabrera will collect. You might want to wager in a futures bet on the winners of the Cy Young and MVP Awards. Or pick out a team – perhaps your personal favorite – and bet the over/under on how many games they will win during the season.
