MLB Best Bet Odds Today
Below are the latest odds for today’s MLB action.
How to Bet MLB Moneylines
Moneyline bets are a simple way of wagering on MLB games. All you need to do is pick the winner of the game, and you’ll win your bet.
The odds are pretty easy to understand, too. For example, if the Mets are a (-200) favorite, you would have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.
These odds will change every day depending upon the Mets’ matchup, so there’s always an opportunity for value every step of the way.
How to Bet MLB Run Lines
Run Line betting is another common way to bet on MLB games; you’re probably already familiar with it. You may know it as how much a team is “picked by" to win.
If the Red Sox are 1.5 run favorites over the Tigers, the Run Line would look something like this: Red Sox -1.5 (-200) vs Tigers +1.5 (+200).
In this scenario, the Red Sox would have to win by more than one run to cash your bet.
How to Bet MLB Over/Unders
If you’re unsure about a team’s moneyline or run line on a given day, you can still place a bet on the Over/Under — or total — in the matchup.
Sportsbooks will set a line for how many combined runs they project will be scored. From there, you can bet on the Over or Under.
For example, if you believe in the Braves’ offense and think it’ll be a high-scoring game, then you’ll want to take the Over. However, if it’s supposed to be more of a pitcher’s duel, you should go with the Under.
