MLB Lines Comparisons Between Sportsbooks

Dave Mason of BetOnline reveals how his book compares to others when it comes to Major League Baseball betting. 


Why it Matters

Many sportsbooks offer a 20 cent line compared to the BetOnline standard dime line.  By betting on baseball at BetOnline consistently, one can save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in any given season.


Some books even offer greater than a 20 cent line.  In fact, it is widely believed that a number of US regulated books will offer higher priced lines in an effort to offset high operational costs (due to advertising) as well as tax assessments (as high as 50 percent in some states).


BOOK A SF +155 NYY -189 (34cents)

BOOK B SF +160 NYY -190 (30c)

BOOK C SF +152 NYY -180 (28c)

BetOnline SF +165 NYY -179 (14c)

Amazing Futures and Live In-Play

BetOnline opened futures betting for all star MLB players just ahead of Opening Day.

The site will offer live in-play betting on all games.  Just be careful this season as the new pitch clock will result in some delays that could take some getting used to if you've engaged in this type of wagering routinely over the years.

Should I Bet on the Seattle Mariners George Kirby?

Should I Bet on the Seattle Mariners George Kirby?

Kirby struck out seven batters across eight scoreless frames on Wednesday in a no-decision against the Yankees his last start.  He hasn't had a win in his last three games and will have his back against the wall facing this Padres team that has scored a single run in four of their last seven.
