With summer now upon us, the Major League Baseball (MLB) season is in full swing, which means bettors have dozens of games on the daily schedule.
Division races are warming up, contenders are emerging from the audience, as well as cellar-dwellers have prospects coming to the big show to see what they can do. Between the pops of two-way rookie Shohei Ohtani — blowing off batters as an ace starter and bashing dingers as a DH for the Los Angeles Angels — into New York Yankees sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge leading the most recent incarnation of the Bronx Bombers, baseball is back in full effect.
But the beauty of America’s Pastime is in the game’s delicate intricacies, something enthusiastic bettors understand quite nicely. You do not need to stay with the game score when gambling on baseball, as most sportsbooks offer dozens of proposition wagers — also known as prop bets — for every single game on the day’s docket.
I’m talking everything from stakes depending on the game’s first five innings — if starting pitchers tend to determine the outcome — to wagers on which team will cross the plate , or reach a particular number of runs. You can bet on whether a big basher will go yard, or which batter will collect the most offensive statistics.
Pretty much anything and everything that happens on the field through an MLB game is up for grabs if you’re prop betting. And these interesting wagers aren’t limited to the internet sportsbook world either. You’ll come across a lengthy lineup of baseball prop bets waiting at any significant sportsbook at Nevada — or Delaware and New Jersey as of this June.
Quantity is always pleasant, but what about quality?
The target for any thinking bettor is not simply to find action down, but to derive consistent profits from the hobby. And while a good prop bet can surely be entertaining, if not downright exciting, they’re typically longshots that prefer the house.
Given the continuing hubbub about sports betting legalization on the national level, and with the All-Star Game quickly approaching, it is time to research your baseball prop bets. Below you’ll get a listing of the most popular baseball prop bets, along with descriptions about how each one works.
From that point, I’ll discuss each wager’s relative merits from the view of profitability. The purpose here is to ascertain which baseball prop bets are worth your time, and which should be sent to the minors.
In the end, I expect to leave subscribers better prepared to wager on baseball props throughout 2018 and beyond.
