During the summer months baseball takes center stage, offering sports bettors a variety of unique wagering opportunities. And baseball lines are available daily, allowing both novice and hardcore sports betting fans to get in on the action with moneylines, totals, runlines, and futures
Moneyline means you are betting who will win the baseball game Straight Up (SU) without a point spread. The team that wins the game wins the wager. The team with the negative sign (i.e. Philadelphia -115) is usually the favorite.
New York Yankees -150
Boston Red Sox +140
Total The Total betting line is also referred to the Over/Under Total and in this example it is 8½ O -120. For you to win your wager the Total runs from both teams would have to be 9 runs or more. The payout odds of -120 odds means that for every $120 bet pays out $100
|New York Yankees/Boston Red Sox||Over 9.5 (-110)|
|New York Yankees/Boston Red Sox||Under 9.5 (-110)|
Run Line (RL) The Run Line in baseball is equivalent to the point spread in football and is always set at -1.5 or +1.5. You win the wager by covering the spread – or + the spread.
|New York Yankees||-150||-1.5 (-110)|
|Boston Red Sox||+140||+1.5 (+100)|
