Baseball is back, and so is betting on baseball. Your favorite online sportsbooks have tons of MLB action on the betting board. Coming off the madness of March and round the clock betting on college basketball. April belongs to baseball with all 30 MLB teams back in action.
Betting on Baseball – The Evolution
There are any number of ways to get in on all the action. Especially when it comes to betting on baseball at online sportsbook sites. Or through their mobile sports betting apps.
The baseball moneyline, total line and run line still account for most of the weekly MLB betting handle. However, baseball futures, props and live-in game wagers are a great way to further diversify.
Your overall baseball betting strategy this season needs to evolve with technology.
Another great way to change things up this season is to add one or two more online sportsbooks to the mix. Today’s marketplace is jammed packed with online betting outlets. Covering all the betting action the world of sports has to offer.
Use Multiple Sportsbooks To Compare Betting Lines
Having the ability to shop MLB moneylines from one online book to the next is the best way to find betting value in numbers.
For example, you might be able to bet on the New York Yankees’ next game as favorites with a -125 money line at Book B. This is as opposed to -135 odds at Book A.
You are obviously hoping to win that bet. However, if the Yankees happened to lose, it would cost you $10 less in commission (or juice) on that wager.
Over the course of a 162-game MLB regular season plus the playoffs, that $10 savings can really add up.
The same betting value can hold true for betting MLB underdogs on the moneyline. If you bet the Cincinnati Reds as +135 road underdogs at Book B. As opposed to using the +130 odds at Book A. You would make an extra $5 if the Reds go on to win.
Making an extra $5 or even $10 on a winning MLB moneyline bet can add up to be quite a bit of extra cash in your betting bankroll. Over an extended time frame, it’s the difference in profit and losses.
Betting on Baseball – Extended Prop Menu
If you are big into daily fantasy baseball. You can double down on that excitement with a few daily MLB player props at the best baseball sportsbooks. There is no better way to follow your favorite players than wagering on their performance on the mound, at the plate or in the field from one game to the next.
Online sportsbooks post a long list of player prop options for every game every day of the MLB season. It would be easy to build your entire MLB betting strategy around daily player props.
The actual betting odds on these types of daily props tend to focus on a player’s career and season stats. When it comes to setting the numbers.
Wager on Hot and Cold Streaks
This gives you the opportunity to wager on a player’s hot streaks. Or go against a player when their bats go cold or their pitches are a bit off the mark.
Over the course of an extended 162-game schedule, every marquee MLB player is going to go through highly productive hot streaks. While also working their way through a few rough patches along the way.
Now is the time to set your lineup for another season of betting baseball at your favorite online sportsbooks.
