MLB Futures

When betting on MLB futures, remember that you should be looking for value. Some teams receive too much hype, driving down their odds. Sportsbooks base the odds on the public’s perception of the teams, not ‘true’ odds. Also, remember that a bet on the World Series winner is not a bet on who will have the best regular season record. In short 5 and 7 game series’, anyone can win.

Many bettors like to bet on 2-3 teams per year, giving them more chances to win and more fun along the way. If you do this, don’t pick the three biggest favorites or you wont make much even if you win. Always pick someone you think has an outside shot at winning, with greater odds for a better payoff.

Baseball World Series Futures

If you’re a casual bettor or MLB fan looking to add some fun to the World Series, then go for it. However, if you take your betting seriously and are working with a bankroll, keep in mind that it takes all season long to collect a winning futures bet. Don’t commit too much of your bankroll to a futures bet, keeping it liquid for other bets along the way.

MLB futures odds will be posted deep into the season, but the best time to bet on underdogs is before the season starts. If you’re right about an underdog, their odds will go down as the season progresses. So, get these bets in before everyone else realizes they have a shot to win the World Series.

If you’re picking a favorite to win the World Series, there isn’t much harm in waiting until the season is a couple of weeks old. Since the season is so long, MLB futures odds on favorites won’t go down much during the first couple of weeks. These teams are expected to do well, and the first couple weeks will only justify the lower odds. While there could be a slight dip in the odds, it won’t be much…so why risk a bet on a big favorite until they’ve proven they’re worth the low odds you’re going to get?
