Baseball Money Lines Explained

In baseball betting, money line bets are the most common way to wager. They’re also easy to understand. The team with the negative (-) money line is the favorite, and the team with the positive (+) money line is the underdog. For simplicity, negative and positive money lines both use $100 as a baseline (no pun intended).

Favorite – Negative Money Lines

As mentioned above, the favorite will always be listed with a negative money line. For betting on a favorite, the number represents how much money would need to be wagered in order to win $100 profit. For example, if the New York Yankees are listed at -160, you would need to place a $160 bet to win $100 in profit, for a total payout of $260.

Underdog – Positive Money Lines

Underdogs are typically listed with positive money lines, but not always. We’ll get into that in a bit, but first lets understand how to read a positive money line. When you’re betting on a positive money line, the number shown represents the amount of money that would be won from a $100 bet. So, if you see a +160 money line, that means a wager of $100 will pay out $160 in profit, for a total return of $260.

When Both Teams Have Negative Money Lines

In cases where two baseball teams are very evenly matched there can be two negative money lines. While it’s possible to have two opponents listed at -110, you’ll generally see one team listed as something like -113 and the opponent at -107. In a case like this, the team with the smaller number is the underdog, but not by much. Since both teams have a negative money line, they work the same way. A -113 team would require a $113 bet to win $100 more, and the team listed at -107 would require a $107 bet to win $100 more.

Futures Betting

As in every sport, futures bets can be good or bad depending on a number of factors. While professional punters are looking for value in their bets, futures betting is generally better for those looking to add some fun to the season.

Wagering on Futures for Entertainment

For casual bettors looking for entertainment value, MLB baseball is a great sport for futures betting. Tons of futures bets are available at online betting sites, with each site offering their own selection of futures. Futures bets also offer bettors the chance to turn a small bet into a big win.

For example, for the 2010 MLB baseball season, you could’ve gotten 11/1 on the Minnesota Twins to win the AL Championship, or 10/1 on the Boston Red Sox. You could’ve gotten 15/2 on the Chicago White Sox.

In the National League (NL), you could’ve gotten 6/1 on the Cincinnati Reds, 13/2 on the Phillies, or 7/1 on the West leading Padres.

Almost every sportsbook offers futures betting for divisional championships, AL & NL league championships, and the World Series. A lot of sportsbooks also offer futures bets for home run leaders, batting leaders, rbi leaders, Cy Young winners, and so on.

Whether you’re a baseball enthusiast or a fantasy baseball addict, futures betting can offer you a more excitement throughout the year. However, if making a profit is more important than having fun, you’ll do better sticking with betting on games.

There are a few reasons for this, the first one being that when you place a futures bet it takes all season until they pay out. If you’re on a limited bankroll or have better uses for that money, don’t plunk it down on long term bets like these.

Also, there tends to be more juice in futures bets, meaning your return isn’t as good as it could be in straight money line bets. Futures betting offers a lot of fun, but not the best value.
