The martingale betting strategy can be applied in various ways to MLB betting. One simple but effective approach is to bet on whether at least one run will be scored in an inning. Here’s how it works:

How It Works

  1. Place a bet on whether there will be at least 0.5 runs scored in the first inning of an MLB game. The odds for this are usually between -110 and -150.
  2. If the bet loses (no runs scored in the first), double the bet size and place the same bet for the second inning.
  3. If that bet loses again, double the bet size again and place the bet for the third inning.
  4. Continue doubling the bet and placing it on the next inning until a run is scored.
  5. When a run is finally scored to win a bet, go back to the original bet amount and start over on the next game.

Key Points

  • This strategy relies on the very high likelihood of at least one run being scored within the first few innings of a game.
  • The goal is to win back all previous losses plus earn a profit equal to the original bet amount.
  • Strict bet sizing and progression is required. The bet must be doubled after each loss.
  • This works best live betting after the game has started. Wait for a scoreless inning or two to get better odds.
  • Weather delays or extra innings can disrupt the progression. Pick dome teams or check forecasts to minimize risk.
  • A large enough bankroll is needed to place the doubled bets after multiple losses.
  • Discipline is required to follow the progression exactly and not overbet. Quitting after a win is critical.

Final Thoughts

The martingale system can grind out steady profits on the high probability of MLB runs scored. But careful game selection and bankroll management are required. While not foolproof, this simple betting strategy can be effective if followed precisely.
