How To Bet On MLB Odds

MLB is a statistician’s dream and, thus, the perfect sport to bet on. MLB odds feature multiple betting options. You can bet on everything from the 1st inning runs to the first 5 inning results to the game’s outcome and overall season results to the performance of a single player. Learn more about the types of baseball bets that suit you, and have fun.

MLB Run Lines, aka Spreads

When looking at MLB odds, you may see the run line, which is similar to the spread in other sports. MLB run lines are commonly set at 1.5. For example, if the New York Yankees are playing the Houston Astros and the Yanks are listed at -1.5, they are the favorite and need to win by at least 2 runs. In this scenario, the Astros would be listed at +1.5 and could lose by up to 1 run, and an Astros bet would still cash in.

MLB Moneyline Odds

If you find the moneyline when looking at the MLB odds, then you are betting on the straight-up winner. The score doesn’t matter. For example, if the Toronto Blue Jays are playing the Boston Red Sox and the Blue Jays are listed at -125, a $125 bet would win you $100 while the underdog Red Sox would be a +115 underdog, and a $100 bet would win you $115. Either team will need to just win the game for your bet to cash in.

MLB Totals, aka Over/Under Bets

Over/Under bets are when you bet on whether the total runs for a game will go OVER or UNDER the set TOTAL. For example, if the MLB odds over/under for the Dodgers vs. Braves game is set at 8.5, that means the teams would have to score a combined nine runs or more to be considered over. Eight or fewer, and the under-bettors are winners.

YRFI/NRFI MLB Odds

Other popular MLB bets are Yes Run First Inning (YRFI) and No Run First (NRFI) Inning. These MLB props focus on whether a run will be scored in the first inning of a game. A YRFI bet predicts that at least one run will be scored by either team in the first inning. If either team scores a run during this inning, the bet wins; if the first inning ends with no runs scored, the bet loses. Conversely, an NRFI bet predicts that no runs will be scored by either team in the first inning. If the first inning concludes with a score of 0-0, the bet wins; if either team scores a run, the bet loses. These bets are popular among bettors because they provide quick results, with the outcome of the wager determined within the first inning of the game.

First 5 Innings MLB Odds

In MLB betting, a wager on the first 5 innings (often abbreviated as F5) focuses on the outcome of the game through the first five innings rather than the full nine innings. This type of bet can take several forms. The F5 Moneyline predicts which team will be leading at the end of the first five innings; if the chosen team is ahead after five innings, the bet wins, otherwise, it loses. The F5 Run Line, similar to a point spread, involves a handicap to level the playing field, requiring the favored team to be leading by a certain number of runs (typically -0.5 runs) for the bet to win, while the underdog can either be leading or tied for a bet on them to win. Additionally, the F5 Over/Under (Total Runs) bet predicts whether the combined total runs scored by both teams in the first five innings will be over or under a specified number; if the total runs exceed the set number, the “over” bet wins, and if they fall short, the “under” bet wins. These first 5 innings bets are popular because they focus on the performance of the starting pitchers, often considered the most predictable part of the game, and provide a quicker resolution than full-game bets.

MLB History

Major League Baseball (MLB) is quintessentially American. It’s as American as hot dogs and apple pie. The origins of the sport can be traced back to the early 19th century in the United States. The game evolved from older bat-and-ball games, such as rounders and cricket, which were played in England. The first official rules for the sport, known as the “Knickerbocker Rules,” were established in 1845 by Alexander Cartwright, a member of the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club in New York City. The first recorded game under these rules took place on June 19, 1846, in Hoboken, New Jersey. The MLB was officially formed in 1903, making MLB the oldest major professional sports league in the world.
