Where Can I Bet On MLB Online

Hardcore MLB handicappers, along with casual fans of the America’s pastime (MLB still calls itself that but we all know it has been surpassed by football), have plenty of wagering options available to them. The best of the best sportsbooks make up the OSB Top 5 list presented below. 

MLB Moneyline Betting

There is no spread in baseball as there is in the NHL, since so many games are determined by just one run. Thus, you are left with picking a side via a moneyline bet. You will almost never see a team reach -300 as a moneyline favorite. There are simply too many variables, even as good as the starting pitcher – say Clayton Kershaw – might be. Even the worst teams will win more than 60 games.

MLB Total Betting

The totals in MLB games will almost always run from 5.5-10.5. The 5.5 is somewhat rare and is rarely only when two National League aces face off. We say NL aces because American League totals are slightly inflated due to the presence of the DH. You will see 10.5 between two struggling starting pitchers or often at Colorado’s Coors Field, where the altitude makes a big difference in the flight path of the baseball.

MLB Runline Betting

One version of the spread in MLB betting is the runline. At its basic, one team will be a 1.5 run favorite over the other. Most often, the underdog on the moneyline will be the favorite on the runline and vice versa.
