Dime lines are vital this time of year, and few books offer the competitive pricing found at BetOnline.

The new Major League Baseball season opens March 30.

That sportsbook's main man, Dave Mason, explained via his Twitter account the importance of shopping for the best dime lines.  Mason also noted the fluctuations.

"Another example for those wondering what dime lines are and how much odds can change from book to book. If you like money, you need to bet at a book equipped with dime lines."


The example he provided was for the 2022 World Series as we prepare for the new Major League Baseball season.  No, the World Series does NOT start tomorrow. 

"World Series starts tomorrow. Lot's of new/rarely bet MLB bettors will be playing. Be sure to bet at a book with dime lines. Some books have 'em, some don't. Odds Compare: BOOK A PHI +145 HOU -175 (30cents) BOOK B PHI +140 HOU -166 (26c) @betonline_ag PHI +149 HOU -162 (13c)."

A lot of books feature what is known as a 20 cent line.  If you were to place your bets consistently with BetOnline throughout the season, it is indeed possible to save thousands of dollars.

Something else to consider, BetOnline does not report your winnings. 

Now let's look at those all important World Series odds for this year (2023).
