MLB Spring Training Betting

First pitch for baseball's spring training schedule is set for this week, and MLB betting opportunities are ready to launch at the online sportsbooks.

Baseball's exhibition season gets started in the Cactus League on Friday afternoon, with the Oakland Athletics taking on the Seattle Mariners. A line for the contest will be available at Bovada.

Arizona's slate for Saturday then has Oakland at Seattle again, along with Cleveland at Cincinnati, Colorado (split squad) at San Francisco, and Arizona at Colorado (split squad).


Prince Fielder: Tigers Odds Improve

On Tuesday, the Detroit Tigers were a 14/1 longshot to win the 2012 World Series.

Their starting catcher Victor Martinez blew out his ACL and nobody expected Justin Verlander would be able to carry the team like in 2011.

Then Prince Fielder signed for the princely sum of $214 million over nine years and suddenly the Tigers were 9/1 odds.

Detroit will still chase the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox for the shortest odds in the AL, with the Texas Rangers and Anaheim Angels pushing hard with their offseason signings of Yu Darvish and Albert Pujols respectively.


Pujols Boosts Angels World Series Odds

For $260 million, you should be able to increase your World Series from 22/1 to 12/1.

That’s what happened within minutes of the announcement from Albert Pujols that he was leaving St. Louis and signing with the Los Angeles Angels. A new challenge, new league, a new contract that boggles the craziest of minds.


MLB Odds: Albert Pujols Prop Bet

Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals are the World Series champions, but what team will the slugging first baseman be playing for next season?

That's the subject of a prop bet at Bovada as baseball enters its postseason. Pujols is set to be a free agent, and the Cardinals are just the second-favorite at 2/1 odds to retain his services.


World Series Game 7 Betting Odds
