MLB Season Wins Betting Picks

There's some good money to be won when betting on MLB team season wins.

Each year before the Major League Baseball season starts, bookmakers set a number of wins for each team. You are then able to bet whether a team will go over or under that number for total wins by the team during the regular season.

We have two conflicting thoughts on placing such a wager:

1. These bets are very easy to beat because the number of wins the bookie sets on bad teams is usually too low. The number of wins set on the good teams is usually too high. In summary, there's great value in betting ON bad teams and betting AGAINST good teams.

2. Now that we've mentioned the good, we'll mention the thing we don't like about this type of wager. You have to tie your money up for the whole season in order to play them! So, whether you decide to play this type of bet depends on how patient you are and if your bankroll can sustain having part of itself tied up for the better part of 6-7 months while your investment matures. Yes, we did call this an investment as in our estimation these are some of the easiest bets to beat consistently in all of gambling.

All wagering should be viewed as a marathon, not a sprint, so the money tied up issue really shouldn't be an issue, assuming that you're betting at a rock solid sportsbook or have a good relationship with your local bookie. Furthermore, if you were to tell a professional investor that you were going to tie up $1000 and get a 50-75% return on your money within 8 months, they would consider you a guru. It's all about putting it in perspective.

A baseball team must play at least 160 games for wagers on its season wins to have action.

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.
