Baseball betting lines can be quite tricky if you do not understand how the odds system works. Therefore, we'd like to take a little timeout to discuss the "money line" in which betting MLB baseball revolves around. First off, a money line is not a point spread. Therefore, to win a bet in baseball against the money line all your team has to do is win the game.
MLB 1st 5 Innings betting: love to bet on baseball but can't stand to watch the last 4 innings when their team has the lead can now bet on just the first 5 innings. That's right only the first 5 innings of the baseball game determine if you will loose or win the wager. You can also wager on the 2nd half of MLB games as well. All of which present the sharp bettor with more opportunities to gain an edge.
The first thing you'll notice if you compare the 1st five innings line to the game line is that they are usually identical. The 2nd thing you should notice is that the results when comparing the 1st 5 innings to the full game results, are anything but identical. That fact alone should tell you that there is a great opportunity to gain an edge over the bookmakers.
