WHAT IS A BASEBALL SERIES BETS?

A MLB Series bet takes a little patience and a little research but there is plenty of value on these bets. It’s a great bet for those who like to play the favorite. The better the team, the more likely they are to win a series as opposed to one game where anything can happen.

The Major League Baseball season is much different than any of the other major sports league season. It is the oldest as well as the longest. Each team plays 162 games before the playoffs even begin. Because the game is so old and the season so long, the season is broken up into series. Multiple games versus one team as opposed to a new opponent everyday like in every other major sport. It is a tradition formed from necessity. A hundred years ago, all the games were played during the day and train was the only option for travel. It only made sense to travel as little as possible while playing as much as you can. Double-headers and 4-game series were the norm. As the years have passed and modern technology has changed many aspects, the MLB series has remained a big part of the game.

These days there will be a four game series often and a two game series every now and then but the usual series is a three game set. Which is perfect for the MLB Series bets. There are several bets to play when betting a MLB series. Winner of the series obviously and also a few Totals bets. Runs, home runs, and strikeouts all have good value in a MLB Series bet. There are several options and also several things to keep in mind before laying a MLB Series bet.

Home or Away – Home field advantage is a factor in every sport and baseball is no different. The home crowd, the rest, the ballpark and the weather can all give the home team a huge advantage. Be sure to check the teams’ home records as well as their away records before making a MLB Series bet.

Pitching Rotation – Starting pitching is the most valuable asset in baseball. Good teams have good pitchers. It’s as simple as that. Most pitching staffs are five pitchers deep. However, the weaker of the starters will be at the back of the rotation. Be sure to check where in the rotation a team is before making a series bet. While a team may be a big favorite on paper, they may be on the back end of their rotation and therefore actually be at a disadvantage. Injuries, rest days, and days off pop up for all teams at one point or another so the rotation is important to pay attention to.

Ballparks – A unique feature in Major League Baseball is the lack of regulation for ballpark dimensions. The mound has to be a certain height and the bases have to be so far apart but that’s pretty much it. Foul territory, outfield size, outfield shape, how tall the fences are, how far away are the fences, are different in every park. Some parks give the advantage to the hitter. Some to the pitcher. Know which parks are which before laying a MLB Series Bet.

A MLB Series bet takes a little patience and a little research but there is plenty of value on these bets. It’s a great bet for those who like to play the favorite. The better the team, the more likely they are to win a series as opposed to one game where anything can happen.
