How to Bet on MLB Baseball
Knowing the ins and outs of baseball rules and team statistics is essential to get started with MLB betting. Having basic knowledge of the players and teams will help you make smart decisions in when selecting what bets to target. Having easy access to MLB odds and free picks is a good starting point on your MLB handicapping journey.
Moneyline bets are the most common option for MLB betting. A moneyline bet requires bettors to pick an outright winner in the matchup. If the Yankees (+120) are playing the Dodgers (-130), the Dodgers are the favorite and the Yankees are the underdog and your potential payout is based on each team's moneyline odds. In this example, you'd win more money for betting on the Yankees, but since they're the underdog, they have a lower probability of winning.
Runline betting is very similar to a point spread in football or basketball. The oddsmaker will adjust the line so the underdog will receive an advantage in the matchup. The underdog will receive +1.5 runs and the favorite will receive -1.5 runs. So for the Dodgers (the favorite) to cover the runline vs the Yankees (the underdog) they must win by two or more run. For the Yankees to cover the runline in this example, they must either win or not lose by more than a run.
When betting the total, you will need to decide if the total number of runs scored in the game will go OVER or UNDER the oddsmaker’s selected number. For example, if the total for Yankees vs Dodgers is set at 8.5 runs and the final score of the game is 5-3 (a combined score of eight runs), it would mean that the total went UNDER.
