How to bet on Baseball (MLB)

Example of how a Run Line is made:

Dodgers Brown +1½ -155
Yankees Clemens - 1½ +135

The baseball run line is a combination of the point spread and the money line. The team you wager on must win covering the run line spread. The amount you lay or stake is determined by the money line odds next to the run line spread. (Odds are primarily determined by who's pitching). The same rules that apply to the totals apply for the run lines.

When wagering on the Yankees run line, the team selected must win by at least 2 runs.

When wagering on the Dodgers run line, the selected team can lose the game but not by more than one run.

Note: Run lines are always "listed pitchers".

Future Wagering

Future wagers, such as to win the Championship or the Divisional winners, will be graded as soon as the season or tournament is over.

Baseball Parlays

Over the Internet Parlays are limited to a specific pay-out:

The odds for Parlays are:

2 Team = 13/5
3 Team = 6/1
4 Team = 12/1
5 Team = 24/1
6 Team = 44/1
7 Team = 65/1
8 Team = 100/1

Note: These odds are based in teams with -110 Money Lines, any team with a different Money Line will change the final odds.

Example: If you make a 4 team parlay with favorites in the Money Line with the following lines:

Orioles -148
Giants -155
Angels -148
Twins -150

If you place a $25 wager on these picks, the payout for this 4 team parlay would be $167 because you are picking favorites in your bet. If you choose teams with a -110 money line the payout would be $250.

Example of how a Run Line is made:

Dodgers - Brown +1½ / -155
