Baseball Betting Lines

Baseball Betting Lines

I have been guilty in the past of taking for granted that people knew how to use the baseball betting lines that are available through ScoresAndOdds.com. I have been told that this is not always the case so here is a quick run down of what is involved in this straightforward betting process.

In the case of a baseball betting lines wager the person who is placing the bet is only concerned with one thing and that is who will win the game. With this money line wager there is not a run total but there is a favorite and also an underdog. Which team is which is determined by the sportsbook that is setting the baseball betting lines.

I suppose that this is best shown as an example so we will choose Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers.

Orioles +120

Tigers -130

In this example the Tigers are favorites to win the game over the Orioles. The numbers that are presented next to each team are the odds that the sportbook has given each team to win the match so you can see that the tigers are the favorites and the Orioles are the underdogs.

The best way that I can describe this in terms of money is that if you were to place a wager of $100 on the Orioles you would win $120 if that was a successful bet and if you were to wager on the Tigers you would have to deposit $130 in order to win $100.

Now that has been explained we come on to the run line which is the same as the point spread which can be found in most other forms of sports wagering. These kind of baseball betting lines are always set at -1.5 or +1.5.

As an example

Cincinnati Reds +1.5 (-130)

New York Mets -1.5 (+110)

In the example above the Mets are the favorites whilst the reds are the underdogs . The figures which are directly next to the teams indicate that 1.5 needs to be taken from the Mets final score and 1.5 needs to be added to the reds final score with the odds in brackets showing you what you would win if successful.

That is basically all you need to know to get involved in some serious baseball betting. When the odds system is explained in a basic way it blows away all of the myths that surround baseball betting and leaves you to get on with it.

As already mentioned I would advise that you take a look at ScoresAndOdds.com for your sportbook account. The Scores.com website that you will be directed to will be ideal for you and you should go straight to the baseball section will become far more clearer when you take into account how the baseball betting lines work as you have been shown above.

The chances are that you may make a couple of small mistakes when you are making your first bets but that is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. To ensure that any mistakes will not burn a hole in your pocket you should only deposit a small amount of money to start with otherwise the pressure will be on and you could end up making some mistakes. Mistakes are usually made in this type of baseball betting lines due to first bet nerves and over examining things. You don't need to do this, keep it nice and simple and you won't go far wrong, your small deposit will ensure that you are not nervous when making the bets so this will act as perfect training.

When you are ready you can deposit a larger sum into the account that you opened through ScoresAndOdds.com and as your confidence grows you can start to place larger bets and before long you will be betting like a professional.

You may be tempted to look at all sorts of resources that are advertised on the ScoresAndOdds.com website and that is not a bad thing but when you are starting out it isn't easy to get completely overwhelmed by everything and this will have the effect of denting your progress or in some cases making you give up.

All of these resources will still be there in the weeks and moths ahead so concentrate on getting the basics right and you can then look at the good stuff later. When you are ready to make a larger deposit you can always take advantage of the sign up bonus.

The bonus will boost your bank and as long as you take notice of the easy to understand terms and conditions you won't go far wrong.

There are many ways that you can arrive at your selections from form study to paying for picks and you will soon find a method that suits you. I can confidently say that baseball betting changed my entire outlook on online gambling for ever and I sincerely hope that it does the same for you. You will find that you get to know the movements of the baseball betting lines, seemingly before they happen, and you will be able to take advantage of this new found betting opportunity on a regular basis. I'm sure you will take to it like a duck to water and wonder why you were ever apprehensive about getting involved in baseball betting in the first place.
