The sport of baseball has its popularity in the United States of America. However, its popularity has grown recently all around the world. There are many people that are watching MLB. Many people make bets on this sport as well. Statistics in baseball is the strongest tool for winning money. With such a long season, baseball offers a surplus of betting options. In fact, there are a total of 4,860 regular season games per season. What’s better, baseball is a very data-friendly sport.
Moneyline – A bet on which side will win a particular game. There are no draws or ties in baseball, teams just play extra innings until there is a winner so it’s a very simple bet.
Run line – The run line is baseball’s version of a handicap. Baseball run lines are always -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The favorite will have to win by at least 2 runs to win on a run line bet while an underdog can either win outright or lose by a single run to cover the bet.
Over/Under – One of the most popular betting formats in sports, called over/under or totals bets, are wagers that don’t even concern themselves with who wins. It’s an awesome way to bet because you get to cheer for top-notch pitching and defense (if you choose to bet the “under”) or for lots of hits and tons of scoring (if you take the often-preferred “over” side of the bet).
