How To Bet On The Houston Astros
One of the most popular bets before the regular season starts tends to be wagering on whether or not a team will win the World Series at the end of the year. However, when the regular season gets going, baseball fans turn to prognosticating the results of individual games. When betting on the potential World Series winner, you’ll likely receive ratio odds such as 10-1. However, when betting on a single game, you’ll be likely using moneylines to determine your play.
If the Houston Astros are listed at -250 against the Seattle Mariners with a line of +200, you can be sure that sportsbooks consider the Astros the favourite. As such, you’ll need to bet $250 to win $100 on your wager. If you bet on the Mariners, you’ll receive a bigger payout. In fact, to win $200, you need to bet $100 on the underdog team.
You can also bet on the outcome of series, as well as single postseason games and series. When the Astros make the playoffs, you’ll notice that the moneylines will stabilize somewhat as the number of surprises in the post season are fewer than the grueling 162 game season.
During the regular season, lines will fluctuate greatly according to the starting pitching matchup expected before the game. True, the quality of hitting and relief pitching are important to the outcome, but the greatest change in the day-to-day lineup are the starters. As such, you should always monitor trends among starting pitchers with the Houston Astros before placing a wager on a game or a series.
