Vegas World Series Odds
Teams have played 162 regular season games and a bunch of playoff games. Now, it’s October. It’s time for the Fall Classic. The odds for each matchup in the best-of-seven series are affected the most by starting pitchers and home-field advantage.
So let’s play ball!
Vegas World Series Betting Online
The first formal World Series took place in 1903 between the Boston Americans and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Grandstand seats for the first championship series cost $1. Today, you would be lucky to get in the stadium for under $100.
Ticket prices aren’t the only thing that’s changed over the last 100 years. So has gambling on the series between the National League and American League champions. If you want to have some action on Game 1 through Game 7, your next bet is just a few clicks away at Bovada, Topbet or BetOnline.
These sites offer bets for beginners right through to prop bets and parlays for those with a little more experience placing wagers. The most popular bets, however, remain the money line, run line and over/under run total.
The odds will change with the betting action as millions of dollars are wagered on the most important games of the season.
World Series Run Line
The run line is like a point spread on a football game. The line for World Series run lines is 1.5. With a 1.5 run line you will be able to place a wager on the favored team to win by two runs or more, or the underdog team to lose by one run or to win the game outright.
World Series Money Lines
Win and you’re in, lose and you’re out — that’s the money line. This wager has odds attached to the favorite and underdog to determine the payout of winning bets. As in all other wagers, the payout on the favorites will be less than that of the underdog.
World Series Over Under
The over/under bet is a wager where oddsmakers predict the total number of runs for a given game. If a bettor thinks it’s going to be a pitchers’ duel, they will likely bet the under. If this is a friendly stadium for hitters, bettors will likely play the over. Just add up the score at the end of the game to see who wins.
World Series Futures
You can wager on the home team to win the World Series before the season even starts — that’s a futures bet. Now you have months of excitement until you know the outcome of your bet. Odds can change on futures bets as the season progresses, but your odds are fixed when you make your wager.
World Series Player Props
A prop bet is a side bet. It often has nothing to do with the outcome of the game or World Series. How many hits will a certain player collect, how many innings will the home team’s ace pitch in Game 1, how many home runs will the home team hit? These are all prop bets. You decide whose side you’re on in the bet.
