What are some of the bets that can be made for baseball?


Sports betting is a very popular American hobby or profession. While most sports bettors enjoy making plays on football, basketball, horse racing, and boxing; the sport of baseball can also be a top sport to bet on. Below is a list several bets that can be made for the sport of baseball.

Money Line:
The money line is a straight forward bet in which you will bet on a team to either win or lose. There will be no spreads to cover or anything else, just bet on the winner. Generally in baseball for a bet to count the game must be played at least seven innings.

When you decide to bet on the spread in baseball there are several choices. You can pick the underdog to win the game and you will get one and half runs. This means that if you bet on the underdog Tigers vs the Yankees than the Tigers doesn’t necessarily have to win the game in order for you to win the bet. If the Tigers have a spread of one and a half runs and lose the game 5-4, you win the bet because the Tigers will get their underdog points to make the bet 6-5 Tigers. You can also bet on the favorite to win the bet. Lets say you pick the Yankees to beat the Tigers. The Yankees would lose one and a half runs and would need to win the game by at least two runs to make you win the bet.

Over and Under:
The over and under bets are very simple. The odds makers will come up with a number of total runs that will be scored in the entire game. If the odds makers pick 10 runs than you have the option to bet if the score will go over 10 or under 10. If the Yankees beat the Tigers 6-5 than the game went over the total. If you bet on the under you would have lost that bet.
