Betting Daily MLB Baseball Props at Online Sportsbooks
When the summer rolls around, MLB betting moves to the top of the list at most offshore sportsbooks taking action online. The top online books in the sports betting industry have gained a reputation for pushing the limits and expanding the options when it comes to betting on America’s Pastime.
One of the easiest and most exciting ways to bet on any MLB game is with the use of daily props. The odds are released the same day as the games are being played and they cover a wide spectrum of team and individual betting options.
MLB daily team props cover things such as a first inning score, which team does score first and the OVER/UNDER on run, hit and error totals for the game. Some team props have similar characteristics to live in-game wagers, but they are placed ahead of time before the game gets underway.
Daily player props are tied into individual performances. They are usually set for the top players on each team from that game’s starting pitchers to the best hitters in the lineup. One of the most popular player props for pitchers is the OVER/UNDER on strikeouts. When it comes to batters, the props can cover everything from total hits to a combined total of hits, home runs and RBI.
There is no limit to the number of betting props that are released on a daily basis for each game on that day’s slate. This also gives you the option of shopping around for the best value if you have online betting accounts with multiple sportsbooks. A few books have gained the reputation of offering an expanded board of MLB daily betting props and they take in the most action for bets of this nature.
One of the biggest benefits of betting MLB daily props along with the added excitement they add to the action on the field, is the value in the betting odds themselves. Betting on MLB games in general probably offers the best value in any of the major sports. When you have up to 15 games on each day’s MLB slate, there are bound to be some soft lines that gives the bettor the edge over the books. When it comes to betting lines set for a wide variety of team and player props, that edge can be more pronounced.
Successfully betting daily MLB props is a process that is well worth the added effort needed to find the best value on the board. Patterns emerge with both team and player props and by tracking past results while paying very close attention to current form, you are going to uncover a few solid betting opportunities on a regular basis. It also comes down to a timing issue since the actual betting odds for daily MLB props are not released until a few hours before the games.
If a particular lineup has had some hot bats lately, it may be the perfect candidate for a ‘team to score first’ prop. Riding individual hot batters is another betting strategy that can produce some prop bet winning plays. As mentioned, it will take some added time on your end to find where the best value in the prop bet odds lie.
You always have the option to pass on that day’s games if you cannot find a bet you like. There will also be times where you find a handful of daily MLB props that you absolutely love. You should have a betting strategy in place that also encompasses a money management feature. It is easy to get carried away with these types of bets, so you still have to be disciplined enough to pick and choose your spots.
