Mobile Betting To understand baseball betting one must first understand what is known as a “money line”. Unlike a point spread, the money line is used for betting on baseball games because they tend to be low scoring.

For example, say the Yankees are playing the Blue Jays, the money line would look something like this:

New York Yankees -160
Toronto Blue Jays +180

If the punter plays the favoured Yankees they would need to shell out 160 to win 100, or an equal ratio. If the punter decides they like the underdog Blue Jays they would place 100 to win 180, or an equal ratio.

Different factors should be accounted for before deciding on which team to put the money on: Home field advantage, injuries, umpires, weather, fatigue, whether or not a team is currently on a hot streak, the list goes on and on.

However, the most important factor to pay attention to is the starting pitchers and how each team matches up against them. A bettor should never underestimate the odds maker’s final line. For they are usually keenly aware of all of the aforementioned factors.

So, like any other form of sports betting, you should study the match-up hard before laying money on either side.
