How to read Baseball Betting Lines?
If you are new to the baseball betting field, it is necessary to read baseball betting lines properly. Here we are going to give you a quick guide.
Reading the money line is very simple. As for an example: SD (-115) @ TB (+104).
To bet the favorite, the San Diego Padres, an investor would have to wager $115 to win $100 (plus the return of the $115 risked).
In betting the underdog Tampa Bay Devil Rays, that same investor could wager $100 to win $104 (plus the return of the $100 risked).
Different types of betting in baseball sports:
Money line: Here you bet on which team will win the match. The favorite will have the lowest price, but sometimes this can be misleading and it does not mean that the bet is safe. There is no tie.
Handicap: In this modality of adding or subtracting a quantity from the total number of runs of a team to determine the winner for the bet. So that by including this handicap in our forecast, it will be more difficult to get the payments and payments, in turn, they will be higher.
Race lines: A special type of predetermined handicap, of the type -1.5 races for the favorite and +1.5 for the other team. So, following this example, if we have bet in favor of the favorite, this must end with 2 minimum advantage runs for the bet to be successful.
Special: These are the specific proposals for this sport, such as which pitcher will achieve more strikeouts or how many races a specific team will achieve.
Future bets: Those that are made in the long term, that is, on results that will be evaluated at the global end of a competition or a league, such as which team will win the trophy.
