MLB Vegas Odds

Vegas MLB Betting Online
In the summer months, baseball games dominate the big screens in Las Vegas sports books. The odds boards are filled with money lines, run lines and over/under totals.
Plus, you can bet every game all season long — you’re not limited to the few days when you’re visiting Las Vegas. Sports books, both on site and online, offer basically the same betting options. If you want to keep it simple and just bet on your favorite team to win, the money line odds are clearly posted.
How about which team is going to win the World Series or which player is going to be MVP? That’s a futures bet. You like your team to win, and win big. That’s the run line. You don’t know if your team is going to win or lose, but they score a ton of runs every night. Then take a look at the over/under bet.
And then there’s always the game within the game — prop bets. How many hits will Jose Ramirez collect tonight? How many times will Aaron Judge go deep in this game? How many innings will Clayton Kershaw pitch in tonight’s contest? Prop bets are endless. Online sites tend to offer more of these wagers than on site sports books.
With all of these options, there’s something for everyone when it comes to betting on baseball. How much action do you want?
MLB Run Line
The team that is favored to win the game must win by two runs or more to score in the run line. If the underdog loses by one run or wins the game outright, the underdog is the winning ticket. In other words, any one-run game goes to the underdog in the run line wager.
MLB Money Lines
The money line is Betting 101. It is simply betting on one team to win outright. The payout is determined by the numbers oddsmakers attach to each team. Obviously, a favorite pays less than the underdog in the money line.
MLB Over Under
The over/under bet is another popular wager. The run total in a baseball game is all that matters in this bet. You decide on whether the total is going to be “over” or “under” the number set by oddsmakers.
Futures bets are exactly that. You are wagering on an event that finishes in the future. For the MLB, the most popular futures bet in the winner of the World Series. But there are other bets like MVP, AL champion, NL champion, home run champ to name a few.
MLB Player Props
A prop bet is a side bet and it has little to do with the outcome of the game. How many hits will a player collect, how many home runs will be hit in a game, will the game go into extra innings — these are all prop bets. You decide whose side in the bet you’re on.
