Baseball Parlays

Baseball parlays offer bettors fat payouts with very little risk. On the flip side, their not easy to hit as all games of a parlay must win in order to cash your betting ticket.

A parlay, is a bet in which you select two more more teams (usually capped at 15) to win. As previously noted, all must win in order for your "parlay card" to be deemed a winner. You may also know this bet to be called a "combo" or a multiple."

When it comes to baseball parlays, there are no set payouts as in football. The reason for this is that there isn't a spread, your dealing with moneyline odds here. To calculate baseball parlays, we must turn the odds into decimals. Use the factor corresponding to the line if you are betting on the favorite; if betting on the underdog add 1 to the line.

Example:
Taking the Devil Rays +220 and the Brewers -135 in a 2 team parlay for $100 100(wager) x 3.2 x 1.74 - 100(wager)= $457

Example:
3 team parlay taking the Mariners +148, Cardinals EVEN and A's -119 for $100 100(wager) x 2.48 x 2.00 x 1.840 - 100(wager)= $813

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
