That will depend on where you live and your country's laws. Regulations in some countries/states are more restrictive than others. But if there are no restrictions, you can place bets at the sportsbooks we recommend on this page.
- Can you bet on baseball?
The answer depends on where you live. Since the US Supreme Court struck down the law making it illegal, many states have passed laws legalizing sports betting – but online baseball gambling is not legal in every state. In the rest of the world, whether you can bet on baseball will depend on your country's gambling legislation and whether the sportsbook offers wagers on baseball games.
- What does 1.5 mean in baseball betting?
When you are looking at the betting line for an MLB game, the 1.5 will be referring to the run line, which is essentially a point spread. If the number is negative, the team must win by at least two runs for bettors to count it as a win. Should it be positive, that team just has to win by a run for bettors to win.
So, even if your team wins or loses the game, bettors can still win as long as the run line is covered. When used as part of a sound baseball betting strategy, they can be a great way to make some money.
- What does 'TT' mean in baseball betting?
'TT' refers to 'team total' bet, which is basically baseball's way of saying over/under bets. The number listed will be for the total number of runs scored by both teams in the game. It is not uncommon for bettors to hedge their bets (reduce their risk) by putting something down on either the over or under.
- How do you win a baseball bet?
It depends on how you bet on a given game. If you bet the run line, your team will either have to win by two (-1.5) or win by 1 (+1.5). Bet the team totals, and it depends on if the total score of the game (both teams) is more or less than the sportsbook's total. But if you took the moneyline, then you win if the team you chose won the game.
- What does 'F5' mean in baseball?
'F5' refers to the line on just the first five innings of a game. This can be a great choice if the starting pitcher tends to start strong for the first five innings, then gets tired and gives up a few runs before getting pulled. It is easier to feel confident in betting on just the first five innings since starting pitchers are often good for at least five innings.
