History of baseball betting
Baseball is one of numerous bat-and-ball games that originated from England in the 19th century. Games such as rounders and cricket grew in popularity — but baseball didn’t really take up serious notoriety until it was exported to North America. Here, players competed in their own baseball-like games in the 1800s, until professionalism arrived in 1869. The history of baseball has endured some controversial periods, such as when the Negro Leagues were formed for African-Americans, who were not allowed to compete in the professional leagues.
Baseball continued to grow during the early 1990s and found popularity in Cuba, Mexico and other nations around the Caribbean. Over the 1940s and 1950s integration into the ‘majors’ began to occur, while in 1960 the league expanded to cover the entirety of the USA.
Betting on baseball ran alongside the game during these times. However, sports betting in the USA has endured its list of obstacles. But the act of baseball betting can be found as far back as the late 1800s, where fans would place bets on outcomes still available today! Betting on baseball has regularly centred around match winners, as well as individual scoring. This created a rise in betting on home runs, strikeouts and more stats-based achievements.
Indeed, the amount of stats used in baseball has only boosted MLB betting. That’s because bookmakers can offer even wider and outlandish betting markets — because they have to stats to confirm outcomes!
World Baseball Classic
Many see baseball as an all-American game but the sport is followed passionately all over the world. Countries such as Mexico, Cuba and Japan boast rich baseball traditions. And that means the World Baseball Classic is always a lot more competitive than you might suppose!
The World Baseball Classic takes place every four years and brings together the biggest baseball nations on the planet. Japan, Dominican Republic and the USA have all won the World Baseball Classic since its inception in 2006. Before that, the Baseball World Cup was the biggest international baseball tournament on the planet — but that was disbanded in 2011 after the Netherlands claimed their first-ever title!
The baseball betting odds often put USA as the favourite to win the World Baseball Classic. That is understandable as America hosts the best players in the world, who train with the best facilities. Yet Cuba, Canada and Japan are just three nations who regularly challenge the Americans — and often beat them — at each tournament.
Betting on baseball is therefore not always about the favourites. Baseball may be a team game but it requires individual brilliance to secure home runs and strikeouts. So when you live stream baseball and bet In Play, be aware that anything can happen at the next pitch!
Best baseball betting odds
The most popular baseball bets focus on match winners. Yet there are plenty of other great baseball betting odds that are worth looking at. For example, you can bet on the correct score of any game in the MLB, as well as match totals. This latter bet type involves you betting on the total number of runs scored in a game, or by a specific team. To do this, Unibet offers odds on every total, such as +/- 5.5 runs. You could bet on a game between Boston and Washington yielding +7.5 runs. If this happens, you win your bet!
Live baseball betting at Unibet lets you bet on individual players. You can bet on who will hit the next home run, player totals and special bets. This is particularly extensive during the World Series, where you can bet on a wide variety of outcomes.
