MLB Money Line Odds Explained

Betting the MLB Money Line is the simplest and a popular form of MLB betting. In MLB money line betting you are simply picking which team will win the game. Reading MLB odds is also just as easy as picking a moneyline winner. Odds for the favorite in a given game will be shown as a negative number (ie. -200) that means you will have to bet $200 to win $100. MLB money line odds will the underdog as a positive number (ie. +500) that means you will win $500 on a $100 bet. A bet can “push” in MLB money line betting if the game ends in a tie. In this case most sports books will return to you the amount that was wagered on the game.

The most common MLB line for money line betting typically ranges from -110, which would be considered a small favorite all the way up to -350 which would be considered a massive favorite. The odds for MLB money line betting are usually not that favorable to baseball bettors, so it may be difficult to find value. That is why MLB moneyline betting is not as popular as betting the MLB against the spread. Many bettors like to parlay multiple MLB money line bets together to help to improve the pay out of their MLB money line bet.
