Welcome to what may be the most important baseball betting article you ever read. Today we're going to educate you about dimelines (aka: 10 cent lines) and the importance of placing your MLB bets with dimeline sportsbooks.Why is this so important having to do with baseball wagering? Because it saves you money!
Not all baseball sportsbooks are created equal. Some offer what's called a 20 cent line while others offer the almighty dimeline that we're preaching to you today. The difference is as follows:
Here is an example of baseball odds you'll see at a sportsbook offering 20 cent lines:New York Yankees -120
Now, here is an example of some baseball odds you may see at a dimeline sportsbook:New York Yankees -120
As you have already probably noticed, the bookmaker offering the 10 cent odds pays $10 more on the underdogs than the 20 cent bookie does. If your betting a lot of underdogs during the baseball season (which you should) this will make you a ton of money over the course of the season. Gambling with a 20 cent line just doesn't make sense.
Here's a current list of online sportsbooks offering dime bases:
BetOnline - Offers 10c lines up to -199. Great signup bonuses and can get Visa to work for deposits as well!
