MLB Playoff Specials Betting Odds & Lines

MLB Playoff Specials are a futures prop where you have only two choices, yes or no. Yes means that the selected team will make the playoffs and no means they won’t. It’s one of the simplest futures bets you can make.

With the season just getting underway, now is the time to make long-term futures bets using current MLB odds at BetUS. The BetUS online sportsbook is offering a 125% sign-up bonus up to $2500 along with a first deposit bonus if your first deposit is $200.

MLB Playoff Specials Betting Strategy: Waiting for the Right Favorites

MLB betting on playoff specials is not the kind of thing you can set a specific strategy for. This is because you really have to break down each team separately. Our advice is to focus on a few teams to start and come up with your best bet against the MLB odds for them to make or miss the playoffs.

Some of the more popular teams to bet “yes” on during the preseason were the New York Yankees, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros and St. Louis Cardinals. These five teams provide a perfect example of one strategy to use when betting MLB playoff specials. That lesson is to wait to be favorites.

Despite having five of the best rosters in the MLB, all five of those favorites are underperforming and have far more valuable odds now than four weeks ago. This is particularly true for the Yankees and Cardinals who are each in fourth place in their respective divisions. If you bet preseason, you’d be in far worse shape than if you placed a wager today with shorter MLB odds.

How to bet on MLB Playoff Specials Odds

Waiting to bet on favorites is not an exact science, but it’s rare that teams who are expected to be among the top 5 are going to overperform. Generally, they will finish among the best teams in the league, or fail to live up to expectations. This is another reason betting on favorites is not the most profitable idea during the preseason.

We believe it’s better to focus on teams you expect to overachieve at longer odds.

The Pittsburgh Pirates, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Baltimore Orioles are great examples of this so far in the 2023 MLB season. All three teams were expected to finish at the bottom of their divisions with the Pirates and D-Backs contending for the worst team in the league. Their MLB lines mirrored this and were astronomically low to make the playoffs.

Each of the three underdogs have played out of their minds so far with Pittsburgh and Arizona currently leading their divisions while the Orioles are in second. The MLB lines are still long for these three as regression is expected. However, it’s far from unrealistic to assume one may be for real and hold on to make the playoffs. The MLB lines are still good to wager on today, but if you picked these teams during the preseason to make the playoffs, your potential payout could be through the roof.
