Dangers Of Betting Baseball Run Lines

Their “Runline Score” would be 8.5 – still not beating the Blue Jays’ 9 runs. In the Red Sox-Yankees game from above, for example, the 10-cent juice on the moneyline (-130 vs. +120) became 20-cent juice when looking at the run line (-170 vs. +150).

Therefore, if you took the Red Sox at +1.5 against the Yankees, they must lose by one or win for your bet to hit. Inning bets are simply choosing whether you think something will happen, or whether a score will be over or under a certain amount by, or within a certain inning.

Because the number moved a full five points in your direction, the odds changed from -110 to -177, meaning you would need to wager $177 for a potential $100 profit. In a worst-case scenario, you end up taking the underdog with the run line in a game in which they are blown out.

Or put another way, you’ll win more money betting $100 on the underdog than on the favorite. The run line for Major League baseball is essentially like a point spread. Though with the run line, it is consistent across the board.
