Baseball has been one of the world’s favourite sports since the late 19th century and it is particularly popular among sports bettors.
If you’re looking to get started with baseball betting, we suggest first becoming familiar with the various baseball betting types available to choose from and as there are so many games packed into a season, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to place baseball wagers!
Moneyline Baseball Bets
Moneyline bets are the simplest of all which also makes it the most popular amongst baseball bettors. All you’ll have to do to place a moneyline bet on a baseball game is pick which of the 2 teams you believe will be the game’s victor.
However, it’s important to do plenty of research before the time so your decision on who to bet on is based on knowledge as opposed to a guess.
Runline Baseball Bets
A runline bet is a wager placed on what the total number of runs scored will be in an official nine innings (or longer) game.
In order to determine the ‘runline’, oddsmakers make use of statistical probabilities and study past outcomes in order to decide on the combined number of runs scored by both teams.
When betting on the runline, you’ll need to decide whether the total number will be higher or lower than that set by the oddsmaker.
Baseball Series Bets
Especially popular amongst baseball bettors ahead of the Playoff and World Series’, a series wager is a bet placed on which team you believe will be the overall series winner.
While far more difficult to predict than enjoying your favourite mobile casinos Canada, as the series progresses you’ll have a better idea of who may just be crowned the series champion.
While not recommended for beginners as they are more difficult to get right, a baseball parlay is a wager placed on who the winner will be of two or more games.
In order for your bet to be successful, you’ll need to correctly predict all selections, but parlays are very lucrative as all potential winnings are added to the next.
Proposition Baseball Bets
Also known as a novelty bet, proposition bets in baseball is a blanket terms for a large number of outcomes within the game.
For example, if you believe you know whether any runs will be scored in the first inning or who will score the first hit in the game, you can put place a proposition bet.
Major baseball games will offer a good amount of proposition bets and they can be highly lucrative depending on their level of specificity.
Baseball Futures Wagers
Similar to a series wager, in baseball a futures wager is placed before the start of the series.
Based on certain outcomes such as who will win the Baseball World Series and Playoff Series or how many games a certain team will win over all, futures wagers in baseball are also more difficult to predict making them highly lucrative.
