Free MLB run line picks

Of all the betting types, MLB picks on the run line and are some of the most sought-after from our expert cappers, though in baseball the spread goes by a different name: the run line and it’s set to a 1.5-run spread. Betting on the run line allows bettors to find value in matchups that are otherwise lopsided in straight up betting markets due to an edge presented by All-Star caliber pitchers.

Free MLB totals picks

Our MLB score predictions are keenly followed because no sport is as influenced by environmental and conditional intangibles as much as baseball. These factors can greatly impact the outcome of games and bets. Our top-notch handicappers take care of all the hard graft that goes into researching external factors. Be it research on weather forecasts, geographical realities, stadium dimension, and more – for example, Denver’s altitude makes Coors Field a right challenge for many pitchers, while Wrigley Field in Chicago can get super windy – they’ve got it covered for MLB picks.

Free MLB moneyline picks

As with any sport, betting the moneyline is the most straightforward of any betting types. It simply doesn’t get more straightforward than placing a wager on a team to win. It’s a 50-50 proposition that can go either way. Betting favorites can come at a hefty premium when a side boasts elite pitchers like Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, and Shohei Ohtani, to name a few. On the flipside, betting an underdog can be most rewarding – but only if the disadvantaged (by the odds) team in question wins.

Free MLB prop picks

Oftentimes, the best value when making your MLB picks will come from the prop markets. These come in many different forms including team props and game props, but our favorites are player props. How many hits, home runs, or total bases will a batter record? How many strikeouts or walks for a pitcher, or how many innings will they complete? There's plenty of value to be found when shopping for lines and MLB odds across a variety of sportsbooks.
