How do MLB Matchups work?
MLB matchups are a simplified look at today’s MLB games, featuring runlines, moneylines, and totals for every game on the odds board. Most popular wagers offered on the league: runlines, moneylines, and over/unders.
- A runline bet requires a team to win by a certain margin or lose by less than a margin. Most of the time you’ll see MLB runlines set at -1.5, meaning the favoured team (-) must win by at least two runs. If you bet the underdog (+) that means you’d win your wager if that team wins outright, or loses by one run.
- A moneyline bet is the simplest bet in baseball – you’re just betting on which team will win the game. A game’s favoured team is usually listed with a minus (-) sign while the underdog is given a plus (+) sign. In the example below, the Red Sox are -125 favourites, while the Cubs are +240 underdogs. That means if you bet on Boston to win, you’d have to wager $125 to win a total of $100. Meanwhile, a $100 bet on the Cubs would yield $240.
- An over/under or a total bet focuses on how many total combined runs will be scored during a game. If the total was set at 10 like in the example below, a 5-4 score would be a winning bet for bettors who backed the under, while if the game featured more than 10 runs, over bettors would cash in.
MLB matchups can be written together to include all three of the above bet types, like this example using the Cubs and Red Sox:
|Chicago Cubs||240||+1.5 (-110)||10o|
|Boston Red Sox||-125||-1.5 (-110)||10u|
