How to bet on baseball
Not only is baseball America’s favourite pass-time, but it is also a very popular sport for people to place a cheeky bet on. While it may not draw in a huge audience outside of its native America, the format of the sport makes it perfect for placing a bet on, and it has seen a steady increase in popularity across The Atlantic in recent years.
The most common types of bets placed on the sport are very similar to those placed on cricket, with outright results, run totals and accumulators being the most popular placed on the sport. There are also bets placed on individual innings and on individual player’s performances.

Baseball bonus codes
Bonus codes are special offers made by bookmakers in order to convince new customers to sign up to their service. The most common types of bonus code offer will be some sort of free bet or a matched stake bet, though, some may offer enhanced odds or price boosts on some of the major events.
A lot of bookmakers will offer specific bonus codes for sports like football or horse racing, but it seems unlikely that many of the major bookmakers outside of America will offer a baseball-specific bonus code for their customers.
That being said, most bonus codes are not sports specific, and therefore, customers can take advantage of them and use them on any sport that they like.
If you need more information on how to claim bonus codes, and which bookmakers are offering what, then feel free to check out our detailed bonus codes guides using the drop-down menus at the top of the page.
Baseball free bets
Another common promotional tactic used by bookmakers is free bets. Free bets are exactly what their name might suggest- bets offered to you for free by the bookies, normally to promote an event or to reward customer loyalty.
Free bets are offered on a very regular basis, and free bets specific to baseball are most likely to be offered during the world series, which is the end of the MLB season.
We here at Bonus Bets aim to keep all of our readers up to date with the latest and the best free bets being offered by all of our trusted bookmakers.
Readers should also be aware that each bookmakers will have their own set of terms and conditions when it comes to free bets.
Baseball betting tips
Anyone who has ever attended or watched a game of baseball will tell you that it is one of the most statistics heavy sports in the world.
Keeping up to speed with all of the latest statistics in the sport will give you a huge advantage when it comes to placing a bet, and there are various places where you can do just that. The best resource, of course, is the MLB’s official website, while all of the division’s clubs will also list all of their own statistics as well.
The sheer volume of games that take place during baseball season means that you will also want to keep some sort of calendar or spreadsheet to decide where you want to place your bets, as keeping up with everything can be extremely difficult.
Outside of these, the more basic things like team’s form and individual player’s form can also be incredibly useful.

Where and how to live stream baseball
The MLB is one of the biggest sporting franchises in the entire world, and as such, most of the rights to broadcast it are tied down by major television networks.
That being said, Unibet currently offers streaming services for some MLB games, and they also offer some minor league games as well. At the time of writing, they are the only major bookmakers to offer this service.
A lot of other bookmakers may offer live updates via vidiprinter or some sort of commentary, but that may be slightly delayed, meaning betting in-play will be difficult.
It is worth noting that each bookmaker will have their own set of terms and conditions when it comes to streaming and that some geographical restrictions may also apply.
