Major League Baseball Wagering Part II
In Part I of Major League Baseball Wagering, we discussed many of the basic principles regarding betting, and we considered simple wagers that you could make. We learned how to read game lines and looked at some examples of typical and popular wagering opportunities. We now know how to use this information to intelligently wager on Major League Baseball (MLB). Now we're going to take a look at more complicated types of wagering, including MLB futures, parlays, multiples, round robins and teasers.
A typical futures wager would be putting money down in May on which team will win the American League pennant or which two clubs will play in the World Series. Futures bets are placed on an outcome and not a single game and typically that outcome will not be decided tomorrow or the next day. You may make a futures wager that the Yankees will win the AL East when they are three games up with four to go in the regular season, but such a bet isn't going to have a very big payoff. The point is that with futures you can generally get much higher odds prior to the start of or early in the season when the outcome is difficult to determine. When the result starts to become clear or fairly certain, odds begin to even out.
You have to win them all, or most of them in some special cases, in order to collect. Single parlays are defined as multiple bets within the same sport. A single multiple or single parlay is defined as where, in order to win the wager, all selected bets within the combined bet parlay must win.
Single sport parlays generally give two to two-and-a-half to one on a single sport parlay double; two bets within the same sport, yet unrelated. A single sport parlay triple, which is three bets parlayed into one wager, generally pays approximately six to one.
By selecting two or more single bets from two or more different sports, and then combining them, you create a multiple wager. The beauty of this type of wager is that you can get high odds on your possible return. Keep in mind, the odds are high for a reason.
The outcomes aren't easy to predict.
With a boxed multiple, the more combinations you choose correctly, the higher the return. In this case, one multiple wager can produce a larger than usual dividend on your investment. Again, as in parlays, and for baseball wagering, beware of related wagers and policies surrounding your boxed multiple choices.
Yankees game, you may want to consider going with a teaser instead. If the straight bet over/under line is 6, you can move the line on a teaser higher or lower, depending on what is offered and your prediction. Teasers can also function on point spreads to possibly give the bettor an advantage.
Usually the point spread is decreased for the favorite or increased for the underdog. Generally, a more favorable wager will cost you more, but it can dramatically increase your chances of winning.
If you predict a win for the Diamondbacks against the Dodgers and you feel they will beat the spread, ask yourself why. Is it because of the starting pitchers? Possibly you're basing your prediction on recent run totals that have been tallied against similar teams? When you start analyzing the reasons a straight bet makes sense, you can start to see how this information can be efficiently used to place wagers on MLB futures, parlays, multiples, round robins and teasers.
