MLB Regular Season Wins Odds

Overview

Baseball is commonly known as America’s pastime. While baseball isn’t nearly as popular around the world as some other sports, it still remains one of the top three sports in the United States, with Americans tuning in or attending games every spring and summer to watch their favorite team.

Brief History

MLB began in 1903 after the National League and American League merged. Theleagues were independent of one another prior to the merge, with the NL formed in 1876 and the AL established in 1901.

Before the merger, the American League was based in the Midwest, however it moved its teams to the East, where the National League was prominent, to try to take star players from the NL to the AL, therefore igniting a ‘baseball war.’

In 1902, the leagues and the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues signed a National Agreement that stopped teams from poaching players and created the World Series, first played in 1903, where the winners of each league faced off to decide a national champion.

There are 15 teams in the National League and 15 teams in the American League and teams compete in a 162-game regular season to determine who will make it to the playoffs.

Within each league, there are three divisions, the East, West and Central, with five teams in each division. Teams with the best record in each division make the playoffs, with three additional teams in each league also making the playoffs due to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

In the playoffs, the top two teams in each league will receive a bye, while the remaining teams will face each other in a best-of-three Wild-Card series. Those winners will advance to the Division Series, with teams competing in a best-of-five series to advance to the League Championship Series.

In the LCS, the remaining teams in each league compete in a best-of-seven series, with the winner going to the World Series, where a champion is crowned after another best-of-seven series.

How MLB Regular Season Odds Work

There are many ways people can bet on the MLB regular season. The three main ways are moneyline, run spreads and run total.

The moneyline is fairly easy to understand, as it is similar to other sports and has fans betting on who will win. If a team is favored to win, they will have negative odds, while the underdog gets positive odds.

The run spread, or runline, is similar to point spreads in football or basketball. The runline is a bet that means a team must win by or lose by less than a certain number of runs.

If a team is favored, they must win by more than the runline for the bet to cash out, while if the team is the underdog, they must win or lose by less than the run spread for the bet to win.

Fans can also bet the over/under on the run total, which is pretty straightforward. Odds are based on the total number of runs scored in the game between both teams.

If gamblers think the total number of runs will be more than the number given, they bet the over, while if they believe the runs scored will be less, they take the under.

Betting Strategy

When betting on baseball, fans should know a few different things about the team and game in order to be successful.

Bettors should take into account who is pitching for each team and how they have done recently, especially when betting the over/under and runline, as a relief pitcher could be known for giving up lots of runs at the end of the game and adding to the total.

The weather can also play an important role in baseball, as a windy or rainy day can affect how well hitters perform.

Schedule can also play a factor in betting, as the baseball season is long and tiring. A team coming off a rest day or in the middle of a homestand is expected to perform better than a team who is at the end of a road trip, as they are likely to be tired from travel.

Overall, when betting on baseball, gamblers should track how hitters and pitchers have been playing recently and the lineup, what the weather is like and how the team’s schedule looks.

Prop Bets

Fans can also bet on props in the MLB. There are many different player props people can bet on, such as how many strikeouts a pitcher will notch or how many hits they will allow, how many runs or hits/total bases a certain player will have and if a player will hit a home run.

There are also game prop bets to bet on. Things like which team will be the first to score a certain number of runs, who will win the first inning, the last team to score and whether the team who scores first will win are all bets a gambler can take to win more money.

HOW TO BET ON MLB Regular Season Wins Odds

There are three main ways people can bet on the MLB regular season, including the moneyline, runline and over/under. Prop bets are also another option for gamblers to bet on.

The moneyline is one of the most common bets to make in baseball. Betting on the moneyline is betting on who will win. If a team is favored, it will have negative odds, while if a team is the underdog, it will have positive odds.

If a bettor takes the underdog and they have +300 odds, a bettor will win $300 if they bet $100 and the underdog wins. If someone takes the favorite and they have -300 odds, the bettor will need to bet $300 to make $100 if the favorite wins.

The runline is similar to point spreads in other sports and is also a popular bet. In a runline bet, an oddsmaker will give the favorite a number of runs to win by or the underdog a number of wins to lose by less than.

For instance, if a team is favored, they could be given a -2.5 runline. If they win by 3 or more, the bet wins. If an underdog gets a runline of +2.5, they must win or lose by 2 or less for the bet to win.

Betting the over/under is another popular way to bet on baseball and fairly easy. An oddsmaker will give an estimate of how many runs the two teams will score altogether, which a bettor will then bet on. If the gambler thinks the teams will score less runs than the given total, they take the under, and vice versa for more runs.

Prop bets are also another way for gamblers to get involved in wagering. Props have to do with things that happen in a game and not the actual outcome of the game, and there are game props as well as player props to bet on.

While knowing what type of bet a person wants to place is important, knowing information about the team and game you are betting on is equally as important in order to win.

Fans should track how hitters and pitchers have been performing lately, what the lineup is and how a team’s schedule has looked recently. Bettors also shouldn’t forget about the weather, as that can play a factor in game performance as well.

MLB Regular Season Wins Faqs

BetUS has many MLB baseball games available to bet on, along with prop bets on each game. BetUS also allows for the use of cryptocurrency to place your baseball bets.
On the sportsbook part of the BetUS site, click on BASEBALL. From there, you can scroll down to the MLB and game or games that you want to bet on. After clicking on the game(s) you want to bet on, you will see all the odds and different types of betting options available for the game(s). You can then click on which game(s) you want to wager money on.
While 12 teams will make it to the postseason, six from the American League and six from the National, only two will advance to the World Series. The current favorites to play in the 2022 World Series are the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees, with the Yankees favored to win it all.
Baseball odds work the same as football odds. When looking at the odds numbers, you will see either a plus or minus sign. There is also the abbreviation EV; this means even odds. Teams with plus odds are the underdog while teams with negative odds are the favorite; if the game is a toss-up, there will be even odds for both teams.
You will get even money for every $100 bet with EV odds, so even odds will get you $200 on a $200 wager. You will get the amount shown for every $100 bet with plus odds, so +300 will get you $300 on a $100 wager. Negative odds show how much you have to wager to win $100, so -500 odds mean you need to wager $500 to win $100.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
