The following are some general guidelines followed by many pros which will give you a ‘leg up’ on many other bettors (first four tips out of 11 basics):

1) When betting straight, restrict your bets to win and show only.

2) As a general rule, bet horses you like with odds of 5-1 or greater to win and odds of 5-1 or less, to place.

3) Play close attention to horses’ recent performances. Form handicapping has a lot of merit, and you face your best chances with a horse in top condition.

4) Horses backed heavily by touting services and computer handicappers may win more, but so many bettors are placing their cash on them, they give poor value for the money. Try to find the ‘dark horse,’ one that has a good shot at the post but is not overly backed.

5) Be wary of the ‘smart money,’ bets placed at the last minute by supposedly, those in the know. There isn’t much smart money at the tracks.

6) Go with your gut feelings. If there’s a horse you fancy, by all means bet on that horse. There’s no worse feeling than not doing what you felt you should have done, and it working out, without you. And if it doesn’t work out, no big deal.

7) Pay special attention to fast starters on slow courses. It is more difficult to maneuver on a muddy, slow or heavy course, and these conditions will favor the horse that takes the early lead.

8) Avoid horses moving up in class. They may have looked good against lesser horses, but the move to better competition may reveal different colors.

9) Avoid horses that have not raced in the past four weeks. They may be recuperating from illness and the owners are using the race as a tune-up. The winning percentages of long-idled horses are way below average.

10) Bet only winners. If you see a horse that has been around but never won a race, why figure that today’s race will be any different? Instead, choose a horse that has some background of winning.

11) Bet only horses you feel have a good chance of winning. If you had eliminated all the horses you’ve bet in the past but have not really believed in, you would be sitting with a much higher.

How to bet on Baseball

Every single fact needed to know in order to bet on baseball!

Money lines (side and totals), and run lines on all games. You won’t strike out when you play with Our sponsors SportsBooks

Money line
When wagering on sides, if you are betting the favorite, you will be laying odds. When betting on the underdog, you will be picking the odds. The odds for each game are based on who is pitching. There are four ways of betting baseball:

Action: you do not care if the listed pitchers start the game.

Listing both pitchers: you want action only if both pitchers start the game.

Listing your pitcher: you want action only if your pitcher starts the game.

Listing the opponents’ pitcher: you want action only if the other teams’ pitcher starts the game.

Example of how straight bets are done:

Dodgers Brown +130 over -110
Yankees Mussina -150 under -110

When wagering on the Yankees (favorite), you will be staking $150 to win $100.

When wagering on the Dodgers (underdog), you will be laying $100 to win $130.

If there is a pitching change prior to the start of the game. All “listed pitchers” wagers will be cancelled and the money refunded. All “action goes” wagers will be adjusted to the odds of the new pitcher.

Totals (over/under)
Wagering on the total runs scored on the game:

If you wager on the Dodgers/Yankees game to go OVER the predicted total, the amount of the runs on the game must be equal or more than 10 in order to win the wager.

If you wager on the Dodgers/Yankees game to go UNDER the predicted total, the amount of runs on the game must not exceed 9 in order to win the wager.

The game must go to 8 1/2 complete innings. In the event of a pitcher change or an incomplete game (less than 8 1/2 innings) all money lines wagers are no action. Parlays will revert to the next level (3 team parlay becomes a 2 team parlay and a two team parlay will become a straight wager). Also create at the bottom of the page: “Special Baseball Rules:

  • A game must go over 4 1/2 innings for you to have action on the money lines.
  • A game must go over 8 1/2 innings for you to have action on the run-line and the totals.
  • In the case of a postponed or canceled game after 8 1/2 innings the money line will be no action, but the run-line and the totals will have action.
  • ALL BASEBALL WAGERS MADE ON THE INTERNET ARE ALWAYS LISTED PITCHERS. 
    *Note: Totals are always listed pitchers.

Example of how a Run Line is made:

Dodgers Brown +1½ -155
Yankees Clemens – 1½ +135

The baseball run line is a combination of the point spread and the money line. The team you wager on must win covering the run line spread. The amount you lay or stake is determined by the money line odds next to the run line spread. (Odds are primarily determined by who’s pitching). The same rules that apply to the totals apply for the run lines.

When wagering on the Yankees run line, the team selected must win by at least 2 runs.

When wagering on the Dodgers run line, the selected team can lose the game but not by more than one run.

Note: Run lines are always “listed pitchers”.
