World Series 2020 Odds, Top Contenders, and Prediction

The 2020 MLB season is still in limbo. We won’t see the 162-game season, that’s for sure, while some sources say the MLB could start in late June or early July. The shortened season would be better than nothing, but there’s still a lot of things to be done before the players take the field. […]

2020 World Series Early Betting Odds, Preview and Prediction

Major League baseball’s Spring Training won’t start until next month with the first Spring Training game to be played on February 21, 2020. That game will be between the Royals and Rangers at the Surprise Stadium in Surprise, Arizona and it will kick off the Cactus League. The Grapefruit League opens the following day with […]

How the Vanishing of the Intentional Walk is Affecting MLB Betting

Basketball has the time-out for cleaning up a spill on the court. Soccer has the Neymar Roll. Football has the holding penalty, or maybe the T/O to ice the kicker. In every sport there’s a buzzkill just waiting to happen. Some might argue that in baseball, the most time-honored buzzkill is the “check runner” when […]

Sluggers vs Contact Hitters: Moneyball Tactics Still Prevail Over Pure Power in 2019

Oakland’s “moneyball” playoff run of Hollywood lore ultimately had little to do with advanced calculus and mathematical wizardry. Billy Bean’s staff used analytics as means to an end, but the simple goal was to put more baserunners on the diamond with a maximum number of RBI opportunities. Moneyball also had an element of psychology. Remember […]

Major League Baseball: A Look at 2019 World Series Futures Odds

I have explained to our readers before why there are very few individual baseball games previewed here at Legit Gambling Sites. Major League Baseball occurs every day with odds posted the previous afternoon, leaving little time for bloggers to write, edit, post, and promote a story. Not that it gets any more relaxed when it […]

MLB All Star Game Roster Analysis, Vegas Odds, and Winning Moneyline Angle

I occasionally mention chess on our sports blog, and not just because chess is the original “war of minds” that would inform how MLB skippers would approach their craft in the modern era. Chess is also a useful strategy-template for handicapping. Successful gamblers know that any angle which appears to be simple – the weather, […]

Don’t Look Now, But People Are Gambling on the Little League World Series

Politically speaking, Americans do not tend to think rationally, but make associations instead. This point was driven home to me in my college days, when my philosophy professor – a pastor and obviously a right-wing conservative – was teaching a class of mostly liberal youngsters. On a very nice day with an outdoor courtyard shining […]

What on Earth is Happening to the World Baseball Classic?

Just when you think you’re getting good at something, the universe has to come along and take it away! In spite of an abiding love of all international sports, I couldn’t really get a handle on the World Baseball Classic in 2013. I knew that Nippon Professional Baseball was a time-honored institution full of wonderful […]

Why is MLB Gambling So Popular in an Impatient World?

I play an internet golf simulation a lot, especially when I’m working on a story. I suppose that’s about as dorky of a confession that it’s possible to make in public. But the visuals and math calculations on the website are good for my mind. It takes less than a minute to play a shot […]

Updated MLB Odds: 2019 Pennant Futures at the Quarter Turn

I certainly understand some of the allure of daily MLB betting. It’s more of a relaxed viewing experience than MMA prizefighting or even basketball and hockey. There is a heavy dose of suspense and intrigue whenever a club puts runners on base. But there are just so many weird results and unexpected outcomes. Managers must […]

A Look at 5 Popular Major League Baseball Betting Systems

How do you define “success” when gambling at a sportsbook? Suppose a guy really, really wants to beat the bookie, and dives into fanatical research on everything from March Madness to the English Premier League. He “succeeds,” winning 58% of his bets including some underdog moneylines and parlays, and makes a few hundred bucks a […]

Predicting O/U Win Total Markets for the 2019 Major League Baseball Season

I’ve been saying throughout the NCAA hoops season that national-title futures and other long-term markets are the way to go, compared to watching 4 games at once hoping to hit just a small fraction of the “World’s Biggest Parlay” in March. But baseball and basketball fans can agree that futures betting is hot-and-cold cup of […]
