Now, looking at a situation where you bet on mostly small underdogs, say an average line of (115) over 100 bets, you would only need accuracy on about 47% of your picks (47 of 100) to show a profit. You should receive $5,405 in this case while losing $5,300, a profit of $105. Say you can up your winning percentage to 50% at an average money line of (115). If you are able to do that, you should instead collect $5,750, while losing $5,000, a profit of $750. In the event that a game you wagered on has been shortened, only your moneyline bets will be valid. All totals, team total and run line bets are refunded. This is because a shortened game unfairly affects the bettor. It takes away scoring opportunities for teams to score more runs to push a game over the total. It also takes away the opportunity for a team to score more runs to cover the run line. As explained earlier, the money line is the price offered on which team ultimately wins the game. It really is as simple as that, and in a money line sport like baseball, it's predominantly the way to victor bet correct score outcomes on the side. Prices are always relevant to the implied probability a certain team has in a particular matchup, and it's up to the bettor to decide whether or not they agree with that offering with their MLB bets. The goal of MLB bettors in the moneyline market is simple. They are looking to successfully predict the winner of baseball games. Unlike the MLB run line bet, which is baseball’s version of the point spread market, the margin of victory does not matter. And unlike the MLB over/under market, the number of runs scored in the game does not matter. The only thing that matters for the outcome of this bet is which team wins the game.
