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 SoxOver 9.5 (-110)
New York Yankees/Boston Red SoxUnder 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)
