Best National League Betting Tips

If you’ve never wagered on baseball online before, you may find yourself quickly falling in love. Every summer and fall night gives you a new chance to choose from a ton of games. You can bet on the Blue Jays, or pick any number of matchups to bet on, every single night.

Each of its 30 teams will play a massive 162 game regular season, which is nearly as many games as any given basketball and hockey team combined. Basically, that means in the National League, the New York Mets will play almost as many games as The New York Rangers and The Knicks combined in standard regular season play.

When placing your bet on the National League, focus on pitching in your over/under betting. Teams that don’t give up a lot of runs typically have great pitching, and you can often rely on that. Baseball is an unpredictable sport, but pitching is one of the steadiest things that you can count on. Always start with the pitching match-up.

It’s also important to know that the lowest ranked baseball teams still win about 30%-40% of their games. That’s a bit more than the cellar teams in other sports. So, for example, if the first place Dodgers are playing the last place Rockies in a 4-game series, the odds are good that the Dodgers will lose at least one of those games.

Baseball games are low scoring, compared to basketball, football or hockey games. So there is definitely an element of high drama added to every hit, run or out. Many of the games are decided in the 9th inning, particularly come playoff and World Series time.
