MLB Baseball Futures prop list by Sportsbook

Spring training is a time that many baseball bettors look forward to. While the games themselves can vary in terms of competitiveness, the opportunity to evaluate team depth and form headed into the regular season helps shape decisions for online sportsbook futures betting. This article compares market offerings from the best online sportsbooks.


Many sportsbooks offer season win totals. In a long year with plenty of swings, bettors often find value in these numbers. One popular strategy over the past several seasons has been to take the opposite of "overpriced teams" - teams where the public perception overly influences the line, giving value on the other side. One such example is the season win total of the New York Yankees: Often one of the biggest numbers on the board.

The below grid lists the projected season win totals from some of the industry's most recognized online sportsbooks. For example, if the Atlanta Braves line is set at 87.5 games, and you believe Atlanta wins 88 games or more, lay a bet on the over. Conversely, if you believe that Atlanta will win less than 87 games a bet on the under would be the winner. Mostly each sportsbook has the same projected total though as shown below there are variations of a half-point occasionally; also important to analyze is the juice attached to each line.

Most online sportsbooks have odds on if your team will win the World Series. Take for example the Houston Astros - a significant underdog that many expect have no shot at winning it all. If you believe the Astros are a good bet, you clearly want your winning ticket to pay off at the highest possible price: In this case +30,000 instead of +25,000 or less.

If you don't feel too strongly on the outright World Series winner, not to worry, online sportsbooks also set odds on both the National League and American League Pennant Winner. If you are confident that the Cincinnati Reds will secure a trip to the big dance but not necessarily have a shot at winning, shop for the best available price for them to win their respective pennant (+600 at the time of this publishing).

In addition, each of the online sportsbooks listed above offer game lines on spring training games.

One of the most important aspects of baseball betting is pricing structure. Some sportsbooks offer what's referred to as a dime line, charging .10 up to -191 or .25 up to -280, for example. Others have a pricier .20 line, such that if one team is priced at  -140, the other side would be +120. Also worth considering is if your online sportsbook offers overnight lines, 5-inning lines, reduced juice on totals or team totals. Check out SBR's Best Baseball Betting lines grid for more on this.

While preseason props and futures are most popular, experienced bettors also realize that the name of the baseball handicapping game is in line shopping. Win or lose, bettors who consistently have the best available price will perform better than average. The free SBR Odds baseball lines grid lists a growing number of sportsbook prices from everything to run-line, moneyline, and total.
