Baseball Betting Guide

Baseball is one of America's most popular sports and whilst it has not caught on as much as other American sports such as the NFLin the UK, it still has a loyal and growing following thanks largely to the sports coverage on Sky TV channel, ESPN America.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) season runs from the first Sunday in April through to the first Sunday in October and consists of 30 different teams. Each plays a total of 162 games per season! That's a lot of baseball betting opportunities! The season culminates in the winner of each of the MLB's two leagues, the American League and National league, coming together to play in the World Series.

MLB Odds & Betting Opportunities

With the Baseball season lasting for six months and games played just about every day in that time, the World Series picture takes many twists and turns with every pitch. The rules of baseball run very deep and in order to successfully begin betting on the sport, we would suggest that you understand the rules before trying to make money!

Popular Baseball Bet Types

The most popular baseball bet for an individual game is handicap betting which gives a run or more start to the weaker team. There is also the total runs in a game market which is an over and under line market, inviting punter to bet on whether the game will be a high or low scoring affair.

Antepost betting is also popular from pre-season right up to the play-offs, with fans betting on which team they think will win the World Series. The New York Yankees are historically one of the best teams in Major League Baseball and they will always feature high on any MLB outright markets but it was only in 2009 that the Yankees ended a nine year draoght, suggesting that they can be beaten and it's just a case of doing your homework to find the value in backing the other teams.
