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 proposals. 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 everyday sports betting most specifically with baseball in this case. Proposals can range from what team will score first, if runs will be ranked early or even individual player proposals. The individual player proposals are sometimes harder to find but can be just as profitable.
What team to score first is the one of the more popular proposals 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 proposal will also come in handy when avoiding teams that have bullpens that collapse.
The proposal for run in the first inning is another popular proposition. The key to this proposition is to look at the oath and find teams that have a solid top four in the order, check their success against the starter for that day and the recent streaks of those hitters. If they have been hitting the ball well still they may be worth the price.
Individual performance proposals are harder to find, however they may be the easiest of the proposals to research. The key here is to see how the hitter does against the team, current pitcher and the ballpark. If it points to success then the sports bettor can wager on proposals such as total bases, a combination of hitting statistics and much more.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wagering on baseball proposals and there are many others to include wagering on the first 5.5 innings. The key is figuring out how to find them, what to research to be successful and the sports bettor may find that wagering on proposals is more profitable than the entire game!
