The Yankees are no stranger to World Series success. They’ve got 27 MLB championship banners hanging in Yankee Stadium, but they haven’t won a World Series since 2009.

The above MLB futures odds feature the Yankees as the most likely winner of the American League Pennant, and their World Series money line of +550 places them second overall behind LA.

Before betting on the World Series begins to occupy the minds of online sportsbook patrons, there is an entire seasons’ worth of game lines and prop bets to take advantage of, starting with the odds offered for each of today’s opening day matchups.

On top of an entire day’s worth of MLB games to bet on, online sports betting giant Bovada is currently taking action on over 500 prop bets. Below are two examples of what they’ve got on the boards to entice MLB bettors.

Mike Trout’s Final 2021 Regular Season Batting Average

  • Over .295 -115
  • Under .295 -115

Jacob DeGrom Total 2021 Regular Season Strikeouts

  • Over 250.5 -115
  • Under 250.5 -115

Online sportsbooks have loads of MLB prop bets that are asking how the top pro baseball players like the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout and the New York Mets’ Jacob DeGrom will perform in 2021.

As you can see, the money lines for each of these proposition outcomes have the same value of -115. This is an indication that the lines are fresh and have yet to receive significant action, and also reveals that these prop bets are intended to be fun and are meant to engage their customers.

Bettors that are new to the game are often intrigued by the variety of wagers that are offered on their favorite sport, and success on a few MLB props at the betting window encourages users to stick around and check out the game lines and futures.
