Home to MLB Previews, Predictions and Expert Tips

Major League Baseball is a first-rate sport to bet on. From the regular season to the postseason, the betting scope is as broad as the angles for profit available. If you’re interested in betting on the MLB game today, as it stands, you’ve come to the right place. It doesn’t matter if you are a sharp baller or if you are just starting out and taking your first swing, at SBR we’ve got you covered.

Our expert handicappers painstakingly preview games by analyzing baseball statistics, data records, and trends to not only serve up the best MLB predictions but also deliver comprehensive reasoning for each recommended wager, all the while scrutinizing MLB odds from a list of top-notch online sportsbooks like FanDuel, Tipico, Circa Sports, and theScore Bet.

Baseball is slow, low-scoring, and quiet compared to the NFL, NCAAF, NBA, and other mainstream American sports. However, this sport, fondly known as the national pastime or America’s favorite pastime, is nonetheless prominent with the betting community, which is regularly seeking Major League Baseball picks.

MLB Regular Season Betting

In any given baseball season, a jam-packed schedule stretches before bettors weekly that often cracks more than a dozen games to bet on. In total, a season encompasses 2,430 games that stretch over six months from April to October. Today, Major League Baseball has 30 teams – 29 in the United States and 1 in Canada – that are divided equally into the American League (AL) and National League (NL).

2022 MLB Season

The 2022 Major League season got underway on April 7 after a slight delay. Major League Baseball and the MLBPA ultimately agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement after a lockout through the offseason that pushed back the initial start date for the season. In the end, the season remains set for a full 162-game schedule.

A full season in front of fans and with all 30 teams set up in their regular home ballparks will be a return to normalcy for baseball fans and bettors alike. We can expect to see MLB odds and lines released earlier in the day than they were over the last couple of seasons, and the volatility that plagued those seasons should be righted.

Among the changes as a result of the lockout, is the adaptation of the universal designated hitter in the National League. That could lead to some higher scores and eventually some inflated Over/Under lines.

Baseball Moneyline

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 Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer, and Clayton Kershaw, 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.

MLB Picks on the Run Line

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.

MLB Total Betting

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.
