New to betting baseball? The first thing you will notice, is that there are no point spreads involved, when betting on baseball sports bettors will use Moneylines.
Baseball money lines are odds expressed in terms of a dollar so if you bet a favorite you will lay more than a dollar in order to win a dollar and if you bet an underdog you will wager a dollar to win more than a dollar.
A favorite that is -150 means that you have to bet 150 to win 100 and on the opposite side, if one were to bet an underdog at +150 you would only have to bet 100 to win 150.
So simply put the favorite is always a minus and the underdog will always be a plus.
Don't let anyone tell you it doesn't matter where you bet baseball. Baseball betting lines are not created equal.
Smart baseball bettors will only play a "Dime Line" or a 10-cent line which offers the player the most value for their baseball gambling dollar.
In a game carrying a dime line, a minus -140 favorite would be paired with an underdog of plus +130.
If that same game had a 20-cent line, the underdog would get back only +120.
Ten cents on the dollar can easily add up to hundreds or thousands of dollars over the course of a baseball season.
Even if you consider yourself a small bettor you should always us a sportsbook that offers a true "Dime Line"
Here is an example of baseball odds you'll see at a sportsbook offering 20 cent lines:
Now, here is an example of some baseball odds you may see at a dimeline sportsbook:
As you have already probably noticed, the bookmaker offering the 10 cent odds pays $10 more on the underdogs than the 20 cent bookie does.
If you bet a bunch of underdogs this baseball season this will make you a ton of money over the course of the season.
