How to Compare MLB Sportsbooks

Share with:

The 2018 Major League Baseball (MLB) season is officially underway.

Baseball sports bettors who will be wagering for the long 162-game season are advised to optimize their bankroll allocation by choosing online sportsbooks that offer MLB dimelines.

MLB dimelines can save players thousands by the time this year's World Series rolls around.

What is an MLB Dimeline?
A dimeline refers to an MLB line where an online sportsbook charges about 5% in commission on a Pick Em line. This commission leads to a 10 cent spread difference between the price offered for both the favorite and underdog. As an example, let's say that the Toronto Blue Jays vs. NY Yankees line was offered by a sportsbook at -165/+155, this is an MLB dimeline.

Sportsbooks that deal 20 cent lines would juice the favorite to -175 on this lineset, which would require an additional $10 per wager to be wagered to win $100. In a such a long season, every small edge matters. Small edges are what allows for towering casinos to be built across the Las Vegas strip, as the old saying goes.

MLB Futures: Sportsbook Comparison
MLB Futures are on the board and ready for players to take a swing at. The Houston Astros are about +550 to win it all, so every $100 wager returns $550 in profit. The NY Yankees are the second favorite at odds ranging from +560 to +620.

Long shot bets are available on the Miami Marlins at betting odds that range from +5000 to +7500.
