Whether you’re looking for moneylines, run lines, totals or parlays, FOX Bet is the place to be for online MLB betting all season long. You can also make futures wagers on what teams will make the playoffs, who will win the World Series and which players will ultimately lead the league in a variety of categories or be honored with end-of-year awards.

There is a full slate of Major League Baseball betting available throughout the MLB season, starting with Opening Day in March and continuing through playoffs all the way to the World Series in late October.

There are dozens of different wagers you can make prior to the start of a game. They include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • a straight-up winner (the moneyline)
  • a side to win against a run line of 1.5 runs
  • over or under the total number of runs that will be scored in the game (by both teams or by either team)
  • a 5-inning moneyline (akin to a halftime line in an NFL or NBA game)
  • a parlay (a combination of bets that gives you a chance to win more cash if you pick them all correctly)
  • any one of a number of game-related props.

A run line represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given team. The team that is considered the “favorite” (noted with a “-” sign preceding the number) would need to win the game by a certain number of runs while the team that is considered the “underdog” (noted with a “+” sign preceding the number) is given a margin by which the team can lose the game but still “cover” the run line.

To use an example, if the line is Red Sox (-1.5) vs. Dodgers (+1.5): a winning against-the-spread wager on the Red Sox would require Boston to win by 2 or more runs. The Dodgers are the winning wager in this scenario if the team either wins outright or loses the game by 1 run.
