Reading Baseball Betting Lines

Reading baseball betting lines is easier than it looks at first glance. The first thing soon-to-be baseball bettors need to understand is how the money line works.

Money Lines

The margin of victory is so small in many baseball games that it’s impossible to have a point spread. Thus, you must understand odds represented as a money line. Click here to see examples of the money line.

Run Lines

The run line is essentially a combination of the point spread and the money line rolled into one. Don't worry though − a run line is not nearly as confusing as it sounds.

The run line normally uses a constant spread of 1.5 runs. The team that is favoured on the money line will also be the favoured team on the run line.

Understanding betting lines is always easier when you see an example. Click here to see examples of Run Lines.

Baseball Totals (Over and Unders)

Baseball totals are just like the totals for any other sport, in that you're betting the total number of runs is either over or under the bookmaker's predicted total.
