There are many different World Series betting markets to choose from. The most popular with baseball bettors include the moneyline, run line, and total or over/under. All of these traditional types of baseball betting markets predominantly focus on outcomes directly relating to the final score of a game.
There are other World Series markets that focus on other areas of a game not directly related to the final result, known as propositions or prop bets. These focus on outcomes pertaining to certain players or in-game statistics. Sometimes these types of bets are broken down into different segments, such as wagering on certain outcomes within a specific inning of a World Series game.
There are also cases where different kinds of World Series betting markets will cross over. For example, wagering on the over/under for total runs after the fifth inning (first half). While this is technically a traditional over/under bet, it’s also a prop bet because it focuses on an outcome unrelated to the final score, and also needs to occur within a specific in-game timeframe.
