MLB Baseball Odds
Unlike NFL betting and NBA betting, when you bet on baseball, there is no point spread to worry about – all you have to do is pick the winner of a game. While the option does sometimes exist to “give” a run to juice the odds, the standard for MLB betting odds is the moneyline. A favorite generally will be listed as something like “-130,” meaning you bet $130 to win $100, while an underdog would be “+125,” meaning you bet $100 to win $125. Baseball being a game where even the worst teams win one-third of their games in a season, it is uncommon to see lines in the 200s.
