An Overview of Baseball

Baseball has been one of the most popular sports in America since the 19th century. During this period, the game attained a more professional level, hence, many people picked interest in it. Over the years, Baseball has developed exponentially and its popularity has greatly increased. Now, this game is not just popular in America, but in other parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, and Central America.

When it comes to Baseball, fans don’t just watch the live games but actively engage themselves in Baseball betting. To increase your chances of winning a bet in this game you need to stay updated with the latest Baseball predictions.

Currently, there are two well-known Baseball leagues in the world. We have Major League Baseball (MLB), which is the professional Baseball league of the U.S. The second one is Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), which is the professional Baseball league in Japan.

MLB Tips

The MLB is considered to be the oldest professional sports league in the US. This league consists of two parts, which are the American League (AL) and the National League (NL). Each of these parts contains a total of 15 teams and this makes the MLB contain the sum of 30 professional baseball teams.

In America, the MLB season is played from April till early October. Late October is given to the playoffs in the run-up to the World Baseball Series. In this league, teams play each other about 162 times per season. They play practically every night during the months when the Baseball season is active. This gives many opportunities for people to find and post good baseball picks.

Predicting the champion of an MLB season is an extremely difficult thing to do because there are so many factors you have to consider. Forms can switch during a season and underdogs may even appear from nowhere. This makes the concept of baseball predictions extremely interesting, however, it is still worth your time.

NPB Tips

The Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) is considered one of the most watched sports in Asia. The Japan Series puts winners from the Pacific League and the Central League to compete against themselves for this title. Each league is made up of six Baseball teams, making it twelve competing teams altogether.

How Does Baseball Prediction Work?

As stated earlier, to make a successful Baseball prediction, you must be able to predict the team that will win a match. The simplest way to bet on Baseball is using the point spread. Point spreads are a popular sports betting technique that you may be familiar with, especially if you bet on sports events that involve points. However, if you are a new bettor, point spread betting is simply handicap betting.

For example, the Los Angeles Dodgers are playing against the Chicago Cubs, with the Dodgers being the favorite team to win by -5.5. This will make the Chicago Cubs the underdogs by +5.5. If you stake on the favorites, your team has to win the match by at least 6 points for you to win the bet. If they don’t get up to 6 points, you lose.

The Houston Astros are playing against the New York Yankees, with the Astros being the favorites to win by -5.5. At the same time, this makes our NY Yankees the underdog by +5.5. So, if you place your bet on the favorite, your team must win the game by a margin of 6 or greater. If they don’t, the bet loses.

Alternatively, if you bet on Chicago Clubs to win, but they lose by less than 5 points, it counts as a success for you. This is because the favorite of the match was unable to cover the stipulated handicap of 5.5 or has failed to make the spread. Your odds are estimated based on the stipulated odds for a specific match.

One significant factor you have to consider before making your Baseball predictions is the match starting pitcher. The starting pitcher is the Baseball version of the American Football quarterback. This player is the most important person on every Baseball field and has the ability to effortlessly alter the normal balance of the game. It all depends on how good the player is. Before the match starts, the starting pitcher gets listed with the stipulated odds for the competition. You can then make possible predictions based on how skillful the pitcher is and his past track record. If the starting pitcher of a game is replaced, your stake will be considered invalid no matter the outcome.

How to Bet on Baseball

When it comes to betting on Baseball, the same rule applies to MLB and other leagues. So it is best to stay informed on what team is the favorite and understand how to stake on Baseball.

The best way you can improve your chances of winning a stake is to look for possible surprise wins from various underdogs and wager on them. Experienced bettors find it much easier to spot a winner, however, if you are a novice, you can still learn it. There are primarily six basic betting markets available in Baseball. They include

  • Point spread
  • Moneyline
  • Over/under
  • Run lines
  • Long-term bets
  • Outright bets

1. Point Spread

As stated earlier, point spread is the simplest way to bet on baseball. Essentially it is handicap betting and if you would like to wager on a specific team to win, it has to be within a given margin. We’ve already provided an example of how it works.

2. Moneyline Bets

Moneyline bets work by eliminating the point spread handicap. Here, the oddsmakers provide you with different odds for the different teams to win a match.

For example, in a match between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees are considered the favorites and are given an odd of –150. On the other end, Boston Red Sox are the underdogs with odds of +130. Let’s say the stake of this game is put at N100. If you are sure that the Yankees will win, you have to wager N150 to win N100. Hence, your whole winnings after the match will be N150 bet + N100 profit. However, if the Yankees lose, you lose too.

If you are wagering on the Red Sox,  you have to stake N100 to get N130. If your bet is accurate, you will receive the N100 stake back plus N130, as your gain. However, if the team loses, you lose.

3. Over/under Bet

Over/under bets are another very popular type of baseball betting. Essentially, this bet involves wagering that the sum amount of points scored in a match will either exceed or stay under the stipulated margin.

Generally, a specific number of points will be given, which represents the entire number of points that both teams in the competition are predicted to score combined (including overtime). The bettors have to then bet on the total score outcome being over or under the given mark.

The odds given for this betting line are just like the point spread bets. So you basically have to bet N110 if you want to win N100.

4. Run Lines

Baseball betting also involves wagering on run lines. This type of wager is actually similar to the point spread since it is also a kind of handicap betting. In run lines bet, you need to make a guess of the total number of runs a specific team will make during a match. For instance, if the favorite of the match is assigned a – 1.5 of runs, your team must win by at least 2 runs for you to win the wager. If the underdog is listed with + 1.5 runs, and you wager on them but they still lose by 2 or less, you still win your bet and get the profit.

5. Long-Term Bets

Just like any other popular sports that people wager on, Baseball also provides you with long-term bets. These are also called outright bets and involve placing a bet on a particular team to win the full competition. Contrarily to short-term bets (like point spread, over/under, and moneyline, and), these long-term bets provide you with greater odds. Hence, it gives you a chance to win better money. However, you have to wager on the winning team before the competition starts because after the competition starts, the odds drop.

Some popular outright bets are guessing the team that will win the MLB or even the World Series Champion. Apart from this, you can also wager individually on the National League winner or on the American League winner. All these are called Pennants. Also, each Baseball league is made up of three divisions (a total of six) – East, West, and Central division. You can decide to wager an outright bet on a specific team leading the division once the regular Baseball season ends. Outright bets are also available for the NPB, Minor League Baseball, as well as the Australian Baseball League.
