Experience the Best in MLB Betting at Betway Sports with your Welcome Bonus
Major League Baseball betting is available throughout every stage of the MLB season. Whether you want to check out our MLB regular season markets or wager on the MLB play-offs, Betway provides MLB markets and odds for every single game.
For MLB regular season betting, the 30 MLB teams are split into two leagues – the American League and National League. The fifteen teams in each league are further split into East, West and Central Divisions. You can bet on all 164 of each MLB team’s regular season games, throughout rival divisional games, inter-divisional games and inter-league games. The six teams who finish top of their division qualify for the play-offs, and are joined by four wildcard teams – the teams with the four best regular season records outside of the top-placed teams.
The MLB play-offs make up the most prestigious stage of the MLB season, and Betway provides markets and MLB odds all the way from the single-eliminator Wildcard games, through the Division Series (quarter-finals) and League Championship Series (semi-finals) to the World Series (finals).
Bet on MLB
Major League Baseball (MLB) began in 1903, when the previously separate National and American Baseball Leagues first agreed to co-operate in the interests of creating truly national competition. As it stands today, MLB is comprised of 30 teams – 29 from the USA and one (the Toronto Blue Jays) from Canada.
With the regular season running from April until October and comprising 162 games for each team, there is boundless potential for MLB betting. And once the regular season ends, we head into the dramatic winner-takes-all drama of the post-season. It’s here that Divisional Championship and League Championship series are played to decide the teams that will face off in the World Series and decide which team rules the roost as MLB Champions.
Historically, MLB betting has featured some of the most recognisable names in world sport, and fans all over the world tune in to lend their avid support to teams including the New York Yankees, the LA Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox. The greatest players in the game can go on to enjoy true legendary status, with recent stars such as Vladimir Guerrero and Ken Griffey Jr. taking their place in baseball’s hall of fame alongside timeless icons like Babe Ruth and Willie Mays.
At Betway Sports, those seeking a complete range of MLB betting markets, each primed with the best possible MLB odds, will immediately recognise that they have come to the right place.

How to bet on Major League Baseball
The Money Line bet is the most popular MLB betting market. An MLB money line bet simply requires you to back one team to win in any given game. One team will always be the favourite (most likely to win) and one will always be the underdog (least likely to win). favourite will have shorter odds – but the underdog will offer a better payout if they pull off a surprise victory.
Another popular market type is MLB Run Line betting. TA Run Line bet is a cross between the Money Line bet and a Points Spread bet, the market involves betting on a team to win by a specific margin. This is achieved by betting via a “handicap”. For example, you could bet on the Boston Red Sox to win with a -1.5 handicap, paying out if they beat their opponents by two runs or more.
If you’d prefer to bet on a market that takes both teams into account, you may want to try MLB Total Runs betting. For this market, you simply bet on how many runs will be scored in the game, via the “over/under” method. For example, you could bet on a game between the White Sox and the LA Dodgers finishing with over 3.50runs – and if the game finishes with at least four runs, your bet wins.
