What Baseball Markets Can You Bet on?
There are a lot of betting markets to choose from when you are doing your baseball wagering. Some of these are very similar with the betting markets offered for other sports. The most popular baseball betting market is the match winner or money line market.
In this market the name says it all and it is pretty self explanatory. You have to choose the winner of the match. As it is always the case, the favourites in this market come with lower odds, but with bigger chances of victory. The underdogs come with higher odds, but at the same times with quite smaller chances to take home the points.
Another market which is quite popular with baseball betting enthusiasts is the points spread or handicap market. Here, punters can once again back which team will win the match. This time however, the bookmaker has created more of an even playing field by handicapping the teams. This means that the stronger team has seen points taken away from it. At the same time the weaker team has seen extra points added to its tally before the match has started.
This evens out the odds for both teams, but it also complicates things a little for the punter. He now has to be more careful when predicting whether the favourite will turn over the deficit.
In addition to these two markets, many baseball betting enthusiasts often turn to the total runs markets. There, they can predict how many runs will be scored in the whole match or in each inning. This market is great for baseball fans who watch baseball for the thrill of the runs.
In addition to these popular team based markets, baseball oriented punters can also place wagers on outright betting markets. These include which team will win the MLB World Series market or which position a team will have market.
Finally, there are also lots of player related betting markets where punters can bet on the individual statistics. Punters can make accumulator betting propositions in which they combine various players’ efforts and performances.
