Baseball’s Best and Worst Runline Bets

Want to make more money betting baseball? Easy, just start making runline bets. Well, maybe it’s not that easy because you still have to make the right pick, but there’s a handful of teams you should be targeting in runline betting as well as a few teams to stay away from.

Betting moneyline favorites in baseball isn’t often an extremely lucrative venture, but betting the -1.5 runline is a great way to get more bang for your buck. Using the San Francisco Giants as an example, they were -110 on the moneyline in a game vs the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier in the season, but +175 on the runline. They went on to win the game 6-2.

Difference in profits based on a $100 bet: Moneyline $90.91, Runline $175

So before you make that moneyline wager, check out our list of the best and worst runline bets in baseball and watch your profits soar. Be on the lookout for matchups between teams with a high number of runline wins and teams with a high number of losses of two or more runs.
