Baseball Sportsbook Betting

If you live in the U.S., you know baseball; an if you are a gambler you also know it is pretty much the only sport around during the summer months. So what is a gambler to do? … Bet on Baseball of course!

Baseball betting is unique in that you have a money line instead of a point spread which makes it a lot easier to win bets. Ask any bookmaker and they will tell you a good baseball season is one where they broke even.

Baseball Betting StrategyThe fact is you will make money this baseball season, the question now is; how do you capitalize on your winnings? The answer is simpler than you think, bet more parlays. It is estimated that the favorite team will win 60% of the time in baseball. Granted a parlay will all dog money lines will have a huge payout but consistently winning 60% of your wagers over a season, and a season as long as baseball has? Those are odds you can’t let go by.

The secret to increasing your winning percentage when you bet on MLB, is to successfully identify the winning favorites. This you can easily do by analyzing the performance of the starting pitchers, the home/away stats and the team’s success rate against each other. All of this information is widely available and easy to interpret.

Once you have identified these you can build your parlay strategy; don’t get greedy and bet a 10 team parlay, rather make 2 or 3 team parlay combinations, you can also bet the games as straight wagers. Throw in a nice solid dog in the mix and you have a great daily payout.

Now be careful

If your winning percentage is consistently above average when you bet on baseball you may expose yourself to penalties like having your wager limits lowered for parlays o even the sport as a whole. A reputable bookie will always pay you as long as they don’t find any evidence of fraudulent activity but you need to keep in mind that the purpose of their business is to generate enough profit to stay in business so they will apply risk management policies where they deem necessary.

You always want to play with established sportsbooks that are financially stable to make sure you get paid when you win. This is especially true during what is considered the off season in the gambling industry. Some smaller or newer books experience a cash flow problem that in the best of cases slows down payments and in the worst case scenario the place shuts down and you never get paid.

For this reason, I always play at, their lines in baseball are some of the best I’ve seen and I know my money is secure because they are rock-solid. Now if you excuse me I have a few parlays to make…
