Interested in betting on MLB, but you’re not too sure how to start? Joe Osborne sits down to break down the basics of how to bet on Major League Baseball.

Whether it’s the moneyline, the run line, the total, or a player prop, there are an almost unlimited amount of ways you can place an MLB game.

Betting on a moneyline is the most straight forward bet you can make. It’s simply a bet on which team will win a given game. Don’t forget, you’ll always get a bigger payout if you bet on the underdog.

Another way you can bet on an MLB game is by betting on the runline. This is like the point spread for a baseball game. You’re either betting on one team to win by more than 1 run, or you’re betting on the other team to not lose by more than 1 run.

If you don’t want to bet on a team to win or lose, you can bet on the total which is simply a wager on how many runs will be scored in the game. You can take the OVER or the UNDER a total in a given game.

Finally, if you want to bake the bullpen out of the equation, you can make a “first 5 inning” bet which is simply a bet on only the first five innings of the game.

Outside of single game bets, you can always place futures wagers which are bets on a team to win their division, win the NL or AL pennant, or to win the World Series. Things like win totals and whether or not a team makes the playoffs are other examples of bets you can place.

    over and under is hard as balls. I like betting on the money line favorites on a two team parlay for even money. NFL do not give over 3 points in a game.
