A point spread allows bettors to wager on the margin of victory in an MLB game, but the spread is almost always set at -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog due to baseball’s low-scoring nature. In baseball, the spread is often referred to as the “run line.” Odds will be assigned to each side of the spread, depending on each team’s ability, and work the same as a moneyline.
A total (also known as an over/under) allows bettors to choose whether the number of runs scored by both teams will be over or under the listed amount. If an MLB total is set at 8, bettors can wager on the combined score going over or under 8 runs.
A moneyline bet, the most popular betting option in baseball, requires bettors to pick the winner of the game, with the odds adjusted according to each team’s ability. A -150 favorite is expected to win the game, so bettors need to risk $1.50 for every $1 they want to win. A +120 underdog gives bettors the chance to win $1.20 for every $1 risked.
