MLB Odds

major league baseball odds

Major League Baseball is a professional baseball organization spanning the United States and Canada. In fact, it’s the oldest of all the major professional sports leagues amongst the USA and Canada, after forming as far back as 1876. The league now has 30 teams that play MLB since the National League and the American League merged in 2000.

The league contains 30 franchises, one of which is in Canada. Each team plays 162 games, 81 as the “home” team, 81 as the “visitor”. At the end of the season, five teams from each of the two leagues advance to a postseason tournament known as the World Series. This competition ends with a best-of-seven championship series between the two league champions. The all-time leaders of World Series wins are the New York Yankees, who have secured the championship 27 times.

How to bet on MLB

There are many different bets that you can make when it comes to baseball. Some of the most popular include:

We run through all of these bets in the FAQ section featured below.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the Moneyline in MLB?

    This is the single most popular bet in Baseball and MLB. This is probably because it’s the most simple bet possible, you just bet on who you think will win the game.

    Odds are displayed as the amount of money you can win if you bet $100. With the favorites showing with a minus(-) number and the favorites showing with a plus(+) number. For instance LA Dodger -130.

    When a team has a negative number, this is the amount you will need to bet to be able to win $100. So if you bet on the Dodgers, you’ll need to bet $130 to win $100.

    If you want to know more about odds in general and how to calculate them, we recommend checking out our detailed betting guide.

  • What is the Run Line in MLB?

    The run line is similar to what you might know as the spread in other sports. A standard run line is 1.5 which we will use as our example to explain this type of bet.

    The favorites might be listed as -1.5, whilst the underdog might be listed as +1.5. This evens up the game a little and means the favorites must now win by 2 points and the underdogs have a 2 points advantage and you can win your bet on them even if they lose the game by one point.

    The Run Line allows bettors to back favorites at better odds and get a better chance of winning bets whilst backing the underdog. Simply put the Run Line brings the odds closer and draws in more action.

  • What are Totals Bets (Over/Under) in MLB?

    This is a popular form of bet to place when you aren’t too sure who will win the game. Instead of picking one team, you can just bet on whether the game will be low or high scoring.

    A sportsbook will pick a points line and then you can choose whether the total number of runs scored will be under or over that number. The number is usually so statistically close to what these teams' scoreline will be that there is very little difference in the odds whether you choose the under or over.

  • What is a Parlay Bet in MLB?

    Parlay bets are also known as combo bets or accumulators. These are single wagers that link together two or more events which all must come true for you to win the bet.

    For instance, you might bet that the Dodgers will win, there will be over 8.5 runs scored in total and the Dodgers will score first. If all of these outcomes were to come true in the game, you’ll win the bet, but if just one of them doesn’t come through, you’ll lose your stake.

    These bets are a fun way of spinning up a small amount of money into a big win with some high variance and long odds. We recommend making these kinds of bets on sportsbooks that allow you to cash out if you like. This way if a few of your bets are on course to win you can cash out early and net a profit without having to wait out the entire bet.

  • What is an MLB Prop Bet?

    A prop bet or proposition bet is a side bet on something that can occur during a game. These can sometimes be known as novelty bets or side bets on some sportsbooks.

    Some popular prop bets might include:

    • The first team to score.
    • Run scored in the first inning.
    • Amount of total hits/runs/errors.
    • Home team’s total runs.
    • Total home runs hit.
