MLB

Available Bet Types:Straight Wagers, Proposition Wagers, Parlays, Live Wagers, First 5 Innings, Round Robins, Futures, Spread Betting (Run Line)

Spread Wagering (Run Line)

Spread Wagering (Run Line) in Baseball is a straight wager on the run spread. When making a spread wager, the team you wager on must cover/beat the run spread. This means that the favored team must win by more than the minus spread value. The underdog can win the game, or lose by less than the plus value.

Listed Pitcher(s) Option

When wagering on Baseball, you may choose to apply one of the following methods to each wager:

  • Action: Team against team regardless of the starting pitcher. Since baseball odds are dependent upon the starting pitchers, all action wagers are subject to odds adjustment if the actual starting pitchers are different from those listed on the board at the time of the wager.
  • One Specified Pitcher: A wager on or against one specified pitcher, regardless of the other starting pitcher. In the event that the specified listed pitcher does not start, the wager is “No Action,” and it will be refunded. The wager will be subject to an odds adjustment should there be a change in the other listed or starting pitcher.
  • Both Specified Pitchers: A wager in which both listed pitchers must start the game. If both actual starting pitchers are not the ones listed on the wagering ticket, the wager will be deemed “No Action” and refunded.

First 5 Inning Wagering

FanDuel provides the option to wager on a result for only the first five innings of a game.

What you need to know

  • If a game is shortened, results are official after 5 innings, or 4.5 innings if the home team is winning at the beginning of the bottom of the 5th inning (the “4.5 Innings Rule”).
  • If a game gets called, the winner will be determined by the score after the last full inning completed.
  • Should a game be shortened due to bad weather or similar, wagers which have already been unequivocally determined will stand. For example, if the O/U is 6.5 runs and there are 7 runs scored already, wagers on Over win and wagers on Under lose.
  • Extra innings, where applicable, count for settlement purposes.
  • If a game is suspended and finishes the following day (local time), then all wagers will stand. In the case of suspended MLB playoff games, all wagers will stand until the game is completed.
  • In the case of a suspended game, the scheduled starting pitchers (the “Listed Pitchers”) must start for wagers to stand. In the event there is a double pitching change, where a pitcher is changed but then reinstated, it will be treated as a normal pitching change.
  • All outright wagers include playoffs where applicable.
  • A pitcher is deemed to be a starting pitcher after throwing one pitch at the start of the game.
  • The scheduled starting pitchers if chosen must start for wagers to stand. In the event there is a double pitching change, where a pitcher is changed but then re-instated, it will be treated as a normal pitching change.

Additional MLB Betting Rules

  • Totals: When wagering the total, the game must go 9 innings or 8.5 innings if the home team is ahead. Both listed pitchers must start the game or the wager is refunded. All totals wagers are placed as listed pitchers.

Other Types of Betting

Straight Betting

A simple straight wager on one selection to win.

Spread Betting

Spread Betting is a wager on the point, goal or run spread. When making a spread wager, the team you on must cover/beat the spread. This means that the favored team must win by more than the minus spread value. The underdog can win the game, or lose by less than the plus value.

Proposition Betting

A proposition wager or Prop Bet is a wager on a specific aspect of an event. FanDuel offers Player Props and Game Props.

Live Betting

For most events, wagering is still available even after a game begins. You can usually place most types of wagers right up until the last whistle, referred to as live or in-game wagers. The odds for live wagers continually update as the game progresses.

Half and Quarter Betting

Half and quarter wagers only involve the score and player performances of a single half or quarter. The overall game score and stats don’t count, only what happens during the specified portion of the game. The rules can vary depending on the sport in question but for NFL and NBA Overtime is included in 2nd half wagers.

Futures

Futures are wagers on long term events which generally won’t have a result for many weeks or even months. The most popular type of futureswager is placed on the outright market which basically means, who will win a league’s championship? FanDuel also offer many other markets outside of the championship, usually including divisional and conference wagering. The odds on futures change as the event gets closer and more is known about the teams. Very often odds will also be updated as the tournament or league progresses.

Parlays

A Parlay is a wager which combines several legs in a wager where the winnings from each selection roll onto the next. For a Parlay to be successful, all individual legs in the Parlay need to be winning selections. In the event of a tie in one of your selections in a parlay, the parlay is reduced to the next lowest number of teams. For example, if you have a 4 team parlay and one of the selections is a tie (only on 2 way markets), the leg would be considered a "push". In this instance, the 4 team parlay would then become a 3 team parlay and would be settled at reduced odds to reflect a winning 3 team parlay.

Round Robins

A round robin is a simple way to place multiple parlays at once. When you place a round robin wager, you’re placing individual wagers on every possible parlay combination within the selected wagers. All of the selections in the round robin do not have to win for you to have returns from the total stake.

To place a round robin, just add three or more selections to your bet slip and go to the “Round Robin” tab. Here, you’ll see the wager broken down By 2’s, By 3’s, and so on. These indicate the number of teams in each individual parlay you’re placing.

For example, if you’re betting on teams A, B, and C to win outright, you’ll have two round robin options available. Your By 2’s option includes all possible 2-team parlays for these three wagers (A+B, B+C, and A+C). And your By 3’s option includes all possible 3-team parlays on these 3 wagers (A+B+C). If you wager $30 on the By 2’s option, that money will be split evenly among the 2-team parlays ($10 on each of the 3 wagers).

Available Teasers

We offer 6, 6.5 and 7 point teasers for NFL and 6.5, 7 and 7.5 point teasers on College Football. In Basketball, we offer 4, 4.5 and 5 point teasers on both NBA and College Basketball.

A teaser allows the player to add points on an underdog’s point spread or subtract points from a favorite. A minimum of two teams must be selected for a valid teaser and all selections must cover the spread for the teaser to win.

In the event of one or more legs being a push that leg(s) is discounted from the wager and if the other legs cover their spreads the teaser will pay accordingly e.g. if you have a three team / six point teaser and one leg pushes while the others cover then the teaser will be paid out as a two team teaser.

In the event of a push on one leg in a two team teaser, two legs in a three team teaser etc. with the single leg covering then the teaser is considered a push and stakes are refunded.
