Springer MLB Live Betting

Didn't get your bet in before first pitch? Don't sweat it because most sportsbooks allow you to get bets in right up until the bottom of the ninth. Many in-game trends develop throughout the MLB season that can give bettors of the live game a serious advantage with their in-game wagers. Odds Shark is here to give you that edge with our MLB Live In-Game Betting Cheat Sheet so be sure to bookmark this page and keep it handy when making live MLB bets.

How the live MLB cheat sheet works:

The report below is updated daily and shows team records when either winning or losing at important checkpoints during the game. We also display the run differential in those situations which is very important because in-game runline betting (baseball's version of a spread) is often where bettors find their value.

The MLB Live Betting Cheat Sheet indicates which teams are great with a lead and what teams can't be trusted when ahead in a game. You're not likely to find great moneyline value when the Yankees or Red Sox are up by a few runs, but bettors would should consider them on the runline if the odds are fair.

Live MLB Betting Tips

Here's a few things to keep in mind when making in-game baseball wagers:

  • How is the bullpen of the team you're betting on performing? If it's been locking down opposing offenses and is injury free, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. However, be very cautious if it's been prone to blown saves or has been overused in recent days.
  • Live betting is often all about timing. Did the big favorite go down by a run in the first inning? If so, this might be a spot to jump on as they'll be offering much better odds than they were before the game.
  • Sometimes a starting pitcher just doesn't have it. His velocity is down and his breaking balls aren't moving the way they should be. Pay very close attention to the in-game commentary as this could be a great indication that the pitcher could implode in upcoming innings.
  • Are any big bats out of the lineup? This could have a major impact on a team's ability to score runs.
