The baseball season is always a difficult one for new bettors. The football season is far behind and the basketball season has subsided. Gone is the days of Madness and the phrase “pitchers and catchers report” are not welcomed. There are several reasons for this such as hard comprehension of the money line, the long grind of the season and summer vacation. Upon closer review the sports bettor may find there are other things that a sports bettor may wager on like propositions. This article covers sports propositions when it comes to baseball and how a sports bettor may profit from it.
The first question that is addressed is what a proposition is. The proposition is a special bet that is most popular when it comes to the super bowl but is also used in in everyday sports betting most specifically with baseball in this case. Propositions can range from what team will score first, if runs will be scored early or even individual player propositions. The individual player propositions are sometimes harder to find but can be just as profitable.
What team to score first is the one of the more popular propositions to bet on and it is because you condense the game and by doing it try to narrow down your handicapping ability as a sports bettor. The first thing that is looked at when handicapping baseball is the pitchers and that is no different here. In fact it is even more specific because as a handicapper the sports bettor wants to see how the pitcher does against the opponent and how he does early in the game. Some pitchers are shaky in the early goings but then settle down to form and this would be a good example of a pitcher to go against. Value could be had when looking at tired arms. This proposition will also come in handy when avoiding teams that have bullpens that collapse.
